The Devil's Violin: The Beast In Me

Tue 21 - Thu 23 June 2022
Seligman Theatre

Imagine a world where the lines separating humanity and animals have blurred, in which dark forests contain refuge as well as danger, and where blood is not always thicker than water.

The Devil’s Violin is Daniel Morden (story), Oliver Wilson-Dickson (violin) and Sarah Moody (cello). Their new show is a masterfully woven tapestry of stories about our perception of beauty and the value of kindness.

“In years to come, old friends will turn to one another and reminisce about this evening, reliving the pleasure of when The Devil’s Violin comes to town with their 21st century sensibilities enhancing the ancient craft of storytelling.”  Avril Silk

“A scintillating combination of music, sound and story.” The Times

Daniel Morden has delighted audiences all over the world with his performances including the Vancouver, Oslo and Yukon storytelling festivals, at Beyond The Border, Bath and Cheltenham festivals and in venues across the UK. He was awarded the Hay Festival Medal for his contribution to storytelling. 

Sarah Moody has worked as a musician with companies such as Kneehigh, London Bubble and Wildworks and has written music for BBC Radio dramas and numerous theatre companies such as Travelling Light and Stuff & Nonsense. She plays in a variety of bands and records as a session musician.

Oliver Wilson-Dickson plays with Jamie Smith’s Mabon and the trio ALAW. He regularly collaborates with Daniel Morden and with accordionist Luke Carver Goss. As a composer he has written music for stage productions and drama on BBC Radio 4. He also plays in the house band on the Welsh TV show Noson Lawen.
