The Awakening


The Beast is awakened in a ritual performed by local schoolchildren dressed as wizened old men known as 'Boggarts'; characters from Lancashire folklore, believed to malevolently wield destructive powers. Choreographed by Serena Korda and Rosie Heafford with music composed and performed by Grumbling Fur. The Awakening is the first of three performance events as part of Serena Korda's solo exhibition Aping the Beast. The exhibition runs until 3rd August 2013.
