'The Fish Tales of Alaska’ ran at The Yard Theatre throughout November 2012. I came up with the idea after hearing audio recordings of my friend’s father telling incredible stories about his life as a fisherman in Alaska. I was also dying to collaborate with dance and make a piece inspired by the idea of man vs nature and so seeing as this friend- Frances Donohoe, is also a dancer, we decided to start working together. Our team grew into The Unhidden Collective- www.theunhiddencollective.com and the piece turned into a multi media extravaganza which was an exciting and informative experience all round..
‘The Fish Tales of Alaska is a collaborative multicultural enquiry that, through the story of one fisherman’s life, looks at how cultural heritage is embedded in legend and how the stories are passed down to us. It is about the loss of culture and roots in the face of globalisation.
