Swift Wings and Lost Stones

Sunday 13 November 2022 at 8:00 pm

Lost Stones is a new spoken word piece from David Bramwell (Cult of Water) which mixes a personal odyssey in search of the ‘missing’ stone of Avebury with an exploration into a terrifying 1970s children’s TV series, folk horror, The Wicker Man, dowsing and the origins and rituals of Silbury Hill and Stonehenge. Along the way he somehow ends up on tour with Julian Cope, uncovers a National Trust April Fool’s Day prank and sets out to prove why paganism is the best of all possible worlds.  

It is presented here alongside Swift Wings – a spoken-word and live-music performance by Justin Hopper and Sharron Kraus, based on their album of the same name; a follow-up to their previous collaboration, Ghost Box Records’ Chanctonbury Rings (‘An album of sensual spellcraft’ – Caught by the River.) Swift Wings takes the pagan landscape poems of 1920s occultist and writer Victor Neuburg – best known for his relationship with Aleister Crowley and for discovering Dylan Thomas – and sets Hopper’s readings to Kraus’s original music performed live on recorders, flutes, synths, vocals and more. The performance is accompanied by original videos by artist Wendy Pye.
