The Festival Finale – Ceres

DOCA have been working with Bassline Circus and Full Tilt Aerial to co-produce ‘Ceres’, which will take over the Market Place and immerse you in a story inspired by Ruth Pierce who died there in 1753.  ‘Ceres’ explores the history of rural life, local justice and the lives of 18th Century women through the rituals and customs of the time, using circus, physical theatre, music and storytelling. This project combines rural heritage, folklore, crafts, music, circus, and performance to create a show you won’t want to miss.  Find out more about workshops and getting involved in this show here
