Punk Myth Makers and Musicians share an anti-capitalist story of our time.

The Ragged Storytelling Collective presents

Binderella

BINDERELLA  is a 45, 20, 45 (1 hours 30 Minutes and 20 minute interval) performance of dynamic storytelling and Welsh folk music performed by The Ragged Storytelling Collective.

 

What the show is like / about

The Ragged Storytelling Collective are an ensemble of three, one storyteller and two Welsh folk musicians. They will 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 wild modern epic.

 

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. 

 

This intimate theatre and musical experience really draws on the issues so many of us are feeling now in Wales. The concerns around housing, homelessness, environment and climate change, the state of society, all told in a dynamic humorous, myth and music experience.

 

Set – there is a minimalist set created by the Collective– featuring a broken Heras fence, camo netting, rags, oil drum seating, skulls, feathers and other junk shrine adornments. 

 

Age Suitability – suitable for ages 12+ 

The themes of the show are absolutely relevant to young people and communities across Wales. There are many educational themes around society, environment and politics especially for those in secondary education.

There are descriptions of eviction by authorities. Suicide is mentioned but there is no detailed description

About the collective

The Ragged Storytelling Collective was formed in 2020, working together to preview the first half of their show Binderella for Beyond The Border 2021. This was made possible due to support for the BtB New Voices mentorship scheme and the global pandemic which meant none of us had anything better to be doing. 

Receiving funding from the Welsh Arts Council Lottery Funded Create scheme in 2023 allowed the collective to complete developing the project with further help and Mentorship from Daniel Morden, Ollie Wilson-Dickson, Julie Murphey, production support from Kama Roberts and continued input and advice from BtB. The finished show premiered its first full performance at BtB in 2023 after being improved through our period of R&D and following that our second Arts Council Funding Bid was successful, providing continued support towards production and touring in Wales.
