As part of the Swindon Fringe Festival
After the death of his father, Ronan is returning to his island home town that he no longer belongs to. Thea hopes of the loss of his mother decades before follow him, as does the memory of her disappearing into the night in a coat made of seal skin. Or was that just a story he tells himself? Inspired by the Scottish myth of Selkies and updated for today. Sealfie interweaves live music, puppet seals and human actors to dissect grief, fractured and unreliable memories and the stories we ‘re told to make it all easier.

Q. What happens when you move a 12-year-old from Basingstoke to Zambia? A. She swims
Spoken word meets physical theatre in a coming-of-age tale about crossing borders. Join Katrina on a mesmerising poetic journey as she (awkwardly) discovers boys, boobs, backstroke and boarding school. This is a story of learning to fit into one’s skin—with the help of some swimming lessons and a sprinkling of early 00’s R’n’B!
