URSULA HOLDEN GILL
"Romance & Ragamuffins!"
FRIDAY 30 September 2016
Romance and Ragamuffins is a one woman tour de force, celebrating the bizarre, the off centre and the wallflower alike through storytelling, comedy, music, dance and song. Featuring Ursula’s latest real life masterpiece Ladies Who Live Together this is love against all odds (where the odds are truly bonkers)!
“When Ursula Holden Gill steps on to the stage your first impression is of a Victorian urchin with a somewhat impish twinkle in her eyes. However, you very swiftly realise that she is in fact a one woman whirlwind able to inhabit any number of characters at the drop of a usually invisible hat! The show itself is very insightful and gives much to think about and is performed in an incredibly high octane style by a lady of great charm.”
(Reviewer for Settle Storytelling Festival, April 2016)
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
