A co-production between Mull Theatre and Sonder Circus, Cailleach is a theatrical film that blends circus with the ancient tradition of storytelling and focuses on one of the most inspirational women of Celtic folklore – Cailleach. Filmed on the Isle of Mull and in New Zealand, Cailleach will fuse the beauty of the two landscapes as the backdrop and playground for this story.
Beneath a veil of mystery, the Cailleach lives on. Plunging us deep into the darkness, she reigns over our winters. But Bride, the Goddess of Spring, bides her time, ready to bring new life and light back to us. A seasonal battle. Rooted in our landscapes and scattered through our folklore, the strength, energy, and mythology of these goddesses inspire this acrobatic re-imagining of their legends, with storytelling at its heart.
Breathing new life into some old art forms, Sonder Circus reconnects to the outdoors to bring you face-to-face with these deities. The tales of our ancestors. The land of our generations - past, present and future. The theatre of now.
