Trebah Gardens, Cornwall 6-10 July 2010
Tales of journeys, chillies and homecomings…

Exotic blooms and secrets in the foliage
Cooking and art
Round the world in an evening
A museum of the unexpected
Heart stopping music
In July 2010, we created a week of extraordinary site specific performance to celebrate the cultural Olympiad. We collaborated with one hundred dancers, young and old, as well as artists, writers and musicians to tell the stories that are hidden beneath the trees in Trebah Gardens. Stories of flowers whose scents break hearts, plant hunters who travelled the world for rare blooms, homecomings and leavings, this show excited all the senses.
Partners included Trebah Gardens, RELAYS, The Works, University College Falmouth, Creative Skills Consortium and FEAST.
