The re-imagining of stories behind two objects from the Museum of East Dorset are being presented in an interactive, multi-media show taking place at the Wimborne museum on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 March.
Presented by Wimborne Community Theatre and Millstream Theatre, in partnership with the Museum, ‘Ways of Seeing’ will look at the story behind the fragmented Roman fresco from the excavated Tarrant Hinton villa, which depicts the myth of Narcissus and Echo. The presentation will also look at the Victorian camera, used by Job Pottle (19th century) and Jimmy Jewell (20th century) in their Eastbrook photographic studio to capture images in Wimborne Town Centre.
Local writer Rohan Gotobed, the guest director for the show, is working with Millstream’s directors Tony Horitz and Tam Gilbert. The event is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Tickets can be purchased at museumofeastdorset.co.uk.
