Hunting the Giant's Daughter

25 October 2013

A 2.5 hour story telling cruise up the Fal River. Pasties provided for lunch, tickets £10.

Adverse Camber works with outstanding contemporary storytellers and musicians to stimulate new thinking about storytelling.


A queen proclaims a curse against her husband’s son, the young man calls for aid and a mysterious witch, deep in a cave, sings of the beginning and end. As the quest unfolds across star-lit landscapes, King Arthur musters his bravest and best warriors to help. And when a mythical wild boar threatens all that Arthur has forged, love, bravado and courage are put to the ultimate test.

Hunting the Giant’s Daughter blends dynamic storytelling for adults with traditional and jazz-influenced music to bring one of the oldest legends of King Arthur, set in Cornwall, vividly to life. Created and performed by Michael Harvey (storyteller), Lynne Denman (singer) and Stacey Blythe (musician/composer).

As well as performance, there will be a story 'walk' (on a ferry!) on Friday, Oct 25th meet time 10:00 for 10:30 on the Prince of Wales Pier in Falmouth for a 2- 2.5 hour cruise up the river and supplied lunch (pasties!) for the audience/passengers

“Hunting the Giant’s Daughter is a standard bearer… a wonderful blend of music and the spoken word and a tour de force by three fine artists. They are about to undertake another tour. Go!” Fiona Collins, Storylines

Voted Outstanding Classical Interpretation at British Awards for Storytelling Excellence 2012
