Villages in Action - From Devon With Love

16th Sep 2022

Join us for an evening of live performance, spoken word and music in Powderham Castle's old riding school.

A bar will be available throughout the evening and audience members are invited to share feedback with the artists after each performance.

7.00pm: The Washing Machine Of Destiny
Luca Saunders and Philip Robinson

Luca Saunders and Philip Robinson are both on the autistic spectrum. Luca has just turned 18, Philip is 65. The Washing Machine of Destiny is an eclectic and engaging mix of improvisation, clowning, live music, storytelling and cabaret, directly involving the audience through voluntary participation. A playful, funny, moving and thought-provoking show.

7.45pm: Universalis
Shaday Barrowes-Bayewunmi

Ever sat opposite your partner and wondered am I pretending to be something else for this person? Shaday is still trying to figure out who she is. But aren’t we all? Hence the reason for this show. Join Shaday in this live art, sex frenzy, and poetry mash-up. Following Shaday’s late diagnosis with Alopecia Universalis Shaday has spent her life picking apart her identity whether that be for the men she dates, her white peers, her family or her friends. Am I sexy enough? Who am I? We all use masks but where is the line? When does it become destructive?
