Emidy: He Who Dared To Dream

The Emidy Project tells a story of survival, slavery and triumph

Sat 1 July 7.30pm


Emidy: He Who Dared To Dream is the story of a 19th Century African composer who lived in Cornwall and traversed three continents in pursuit of his musical dreams. It is a story of survival, slavery and triumph of a composer and virtuoso violinist in the royal courts of Europe.

It is a tale about one man’s journey to overcome insurmountable odds to become a legend in his time but forgotten in the annals of history.

Told through dance, narration, film, theatre and music this show traverses three continents from Africa to South America and Europe and reveals a hidden history.

Emidy: He Who Dared To Dream is a symphony of the art-forms and is an innovative contemporary work that draws inspiration from the dialogue between movement, image and music.
