Are you missing going to the cinema and the theatre? Of course you are.
However, you now have the chance to see a local film, the premiere of which will be streamed online on Wednesday 21 January.
Millstream Theatre, The Museum of East Dorset’s resident company of learning disabled actors, presents a brand new short film based on a magical folk tale (collected by traditional storyteller Duncan Williamson).
The Woodcutter and the Swan was originally a devised theatre piece. Due to Covid-19, Millstream Theatre (along with co-directors, Tony Horitz and Tam Gilbert) have transformed the production into a screen adaptation. The film combines drama, dance, poetry, animated drawing and original music, created and developed via Zoom and mobile phones. The Woodcutter and the Swan reflects the isolation many have experienced this year, ending with a message of hope and friendship.
Several local professional artists have supported Millstream in creating the film – including Christchurch 3D artist, Heidi Steller and Wimborne-based musician Pete Ferrett.
Ticket price includes access to a Q&A with the actors and creative team following the film.

This film will be streamed online. An access link will be sent to your email address on Thursday 21 January. If you prefer to receive this by text please mention this in the additional Information box when booking the event.
