Theatre Incline presents Threads | UK premiere | manipulate 2016
Listen, my love... Listen, my child... Listen to the river...
Once there was a Mountain-Woman as white as snow, who washed away the woes of the world in the waters of her wide, wide river.
One day in spring, she heard the cry of wild horses and the rattle of chains being forced into their noble mouths.
One day later, amid awful sounds of metal and fire, the Mountain-Woman felt the War-Ogre’s anger as it climbed her flanks.
Seen through the primal connection between a mother and daughter, this is the story of that spark of life which continues to burn brightly despite all the horrors endured by a broken land.
A mythological tale that is on the side of life... For a modern world which is desperate for poetry.

Over the past decade the company has developed a series of international co-productions with a wide range of leading artists from Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Japan and Norway.
