Bindarella – “a back alley myth, upcycled and retold”

In this debut performance at Hay Castle, The Ragged Storytelling Collective; Kestrel, Heulwen and Hazel, weave their unique patchwork vision, stitching the raw energy of punk storytelling with a haunting thread of Welsh folk melody and song in this fiercely modern epic.

A baby cries in a bin at night – as a Faceless Man carves land for profit; a tall tower rises – as the World Tree shakes; and the fate of the earth hangs upon a single silken spider’s thread.

Binderella is a tale for our times, the wild birth-myth of an Anti-Goddess who challenges the forces of greed and despair that seek to steal our future from us. This anarchistic wonder story peeks through the cracks in our society, fusing an environmental rallying cry with an uplifting call for compassion and courage in this age of crisis.

Originally developed through Beyond the Border Storytelling Festival’s New Voices scheme in 2021 and made possible through investment from Arts Council Wales National lottery Funding. With creative support from internationally acclaimed storyteller Daniel Morden, and leading Welsh folk musician Oliver Wilson-Dickson, this show will leave you spellbound.
