When the shops are shut for good, when the shutters come down for the last time, when the final homes are bought up, what happens to communities then?

When the Shops Shut told the tales of vanishing villages and the people who live in them. Evocative, charming and funny the show bought these communities to life in a vivid blend of dance, theatre, film, poetry and music, featuring the film work of Mark Jenkin and the poetry of Anna Maria Murphy (Kneehigh Theatre) and Murray Lachlan-Young.

When the Shops Shut was commissioned by FEAST and supported by ACESW and The Works, Dance and Theatre Cornwall.

Chorography: T.C. Howard, Helen Tiplady and Sally Williams.
