A one-off livestream from The Barns celebrating 40 years of Kneehigh.
2020 was Kneehigh’s 40th year and they had planned to celebrate in style, but then the pandemic struck and their plans were scuppered. Not to be deterred, they’re throwing a livestream bash on Saturday 30 January 2021, inviting audiences to their rehearsal space and spiritual home in Cornwall; The Barns. Perched atop a Cornish cliff, The Barns is where iconic shows such as The Tin Drum, Dead Dog in a Suitcase (and other love songs), Tristan & Yseult and The Red Shoes were born. It is the place where Kneehigh create, rehearse, talk and try to make sense of the world.
In Kneehigh’s cheerfully anarchic style, the event will be hosted by Craig Johnson as Colin Pickering, a character from 2007 production BLAST! whose love of all things Cornish knows no bounds…
Join Colin Pickering as he lifts the lid on all things Kneehigh. The history! The mystery! Frolics and fireworks! Music and mayhem! Silly surprises and interactive insanity! And maybe even a special guest or two… all from the comfort of your own home. A guaranteed winter warmer.
Beamed live from the Kneehigh Barns, for one night only. What could possibly go wrong?
