Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, Collective Arts Ltd & Trebiggan Productions present The ZigZag Way From the novel by Anita Desai and adapted for the stage by Pauline Sheppard.
It’s 1910, and young Cornish couple Betty and Davey travel to the gold and silver mines of Mexico, unaware of the perils they will face. Aside from the mining itself, there’s unrest between the natives and the incomers, and a whiff of danger is in the air. Wind forward 100 years, and Eric, an uncertain young American, arrives in Mexico on a curious quest for his Cornish roots, unprepared for what he will find. Led by Huichol Indian guides, he journeys to an old mining village on an unlikely path of self-discovery, and soon finds himself in another world…
The Zigzag Way is a gripping story which winds through cultures and across time to paint a picture of love, revolution and sacrifice.
Blending humour with pathos and past with present, this haunting and arresting tale finally leads you to a night where the veils that separate life and death are lifted and the illusion of time is broken: Dia de los Muertos – the Mexican Day of the Dead.
Combining strong ensemble playing and physical inventiveness with a cracking tale, this is story-telling at its most colourful, visual and touching.
