Everybird Visits Godalming, Saturday 6th November, Crown Court
The Earth Sprites
The Earth Sprites are emerging because the humans are damaging the planet. The humans need help, many of them are not aware of harm they a causing to the creatures of the land and sea, and to themselves!
The Earth Sprites are so concerned that that have awoken Everybird, their leader, from her millenial slumber in the womb of the earth, to help guide the humans to a balanced way of life, respecting the planet and all its inhabitants.
Nolene, a troublesome Earth Sprite who cares deeply about the troublesome humans.
Treebeard, a wise Earth Sprite who protects the forests and the land.
Elsa, a majestic Earth Sprite who protects the sea and all its creatures.
Faraday, a scientific Earth Sprite who is suspiciously ‘human’.
Godalming’s Earth Sprites need your HELP!
Earth Sprites Emerging: The story so far:
“During COP26 the Earth Sprites: Treebeard, Elsa and Faraday – accompanied by the Drumming Wizard – met in Godalming to awaken Nolene. They understood that, although troublesome, Nolene was the best at communicating with the Earth Sprites, with the humans and, most importantly, Everybird. Nolene awoke to find that the Earth Sprites were concerned: the humans had been damaging the earth, they needed Nolene to call on Everybird to rise from the the womb of the earth to help stop the humans destroying the planet With the help of the people of Godalming, Everybird arose, and speaking in ‘flute’, she asked for messages from the people of Godalming to take the the leaders meeting in Glasgow. This July, the Earth Sprites will return to the streets of Godalming. Treebeard, in his new role as CEO of the World Wide Wood, has been working hard to create the Green Leaf Stamp award, to be given the wood-worthy businesses, those helping support and nurture the earth and all its creatures. But, will any of the businesses meet the criteria? Join us on Saturday 9th July in Crown Court at 11:00am, 12:30pm and 2:00pm to see how ’Take the Biscuit’, ‘Snake Oil Inc.’ and ’Natty Nuts’ get in with their applications for the Green Leaf Stamp award.”
The Eco-theatre Group
The group meet regularly on Saturday afternoons and work together to create stories, characters and events. We love working with our Earth Sprite characters (see above) and there is always room for more Earth Sprites to emerge, but we also work on other ideas, including climate comedy. We also have our own puppet theatre created from re-used waste materials. We perform on the streets of Godalming, at local events / festivals and at the What Next Centre on our Eco-tainment evenings. We also keen to bring our productions to other groups and venues where possible.
All material is designed to inform, educate, influence, encourage and entertain audiences about the climate and ecological emergency.
Currently meeting on most Saturday Afternoons, 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
All sessions are free of charge, but we would welcome any donations to help meet our running costs.
