The Fool And His Dancers: Tales Of Dark Morris From The Wild Welsh Border

Posted on Friday, August 31, 2018 | No Comments

Morris dancing? That's all hanky waving and flowers round your hat, isn't it? Well, maybe. But what if it is not that simple? What if the roots extend right through our cultural psyche to the dark spiritual earthiness of our past?

The answers are inside this book, brought to you in these tales of an anarchic band of brothers who challenged the received wisdom and almost accidentally stumbled upon the essential core of this ancient custom. They brought it out of the museum and set it on fire. Treating it more like street theatre or flash mob, these iconoclasts sexed it up and breathed new life into it.

In your hands is a story of friendship, fun and the bonds that unite people in a common cause. It is about comradeship, humour, trust and mutual respect, and about how visions can be brought to life. It also happens to be set against a backdrop of folk culture and morris dancing.

It might just turn out to be the quirkiest book you read this year.
