French circus launches Carn to Cove season
CARN TO COVE, Cornwall's performing arts touring scheme which brings quality professional artists into rural areas, is kicking off a new season of events.
The new brochure is hot off the presses and winging its way around Cornwall and there's loads of new Cornish talent chomping at the bit to perform in the network village halls and community spaces that make up the scheme.
Tim Smithies, the project manager, said: "Carn to Cove is part of the charity Cornwall Arts Centre Trust and as well as putting on a season of events for rural communities, we also provide employment for over 130 performers in 100 different shows each year."
This autumn there are 53 venues throughout Cornwall which are holding performances as part of the Carn to Cove network, including new communities in Helston, Coverack, St Mawes, Washaway, Poughill and Polbathic.

This increase is due to the enthusiasm and drive of local volunteers who are keen to host events in their communities and the success of Carn to Cove is founded on that commitment and enthusiasm. There is a wide range of events making up the season – varying from a new film from local film-maker Jane Darke to a seven-piece bhangra band, storytelling from Wales and contemporary dance from Norway.
The first show to start the season is coming all the way from Carcassonne in France to nine rural locations across the South West of England including Events Square in Falmouth and Sterts Theatre near Liskeard.
Four very talented contemporary circus artists from Compagnie Hors Pistes come with a show to delight new audiences in Cornwall.
Ordures et Menagère is a show that has been created to be performed outdoors, is captivating in its simplicity as everyday objects become part of an energetic, thrilling and humorous performance.
It is the story of Mr and Mrs Anybody who have what you might imagine to be a quiet life with a nice, orderly routine. But things are not always as they seem. As the story infolds we begin to see who the characters really are, and as new uses are found for everyday objects and fantasies are intensified, their lives are transformed into a contemporary circus by the use of brilliant choreography and memorable music.
You can see the show on Thursday, September 19, at Events Square at 2pm and 7pm (part of the Splash Festival) or on Friday, September 20, at Sterts at 7.30pm.
Full details of all the shows are on the website www.carntocove.co.uk or you can get hold of the brochure by calling the office on 01209 312500.
