Ship of Dreams: Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival 2020

Delaney Davidson, touring force extraordinaire, presents a glimpse into the world of the traveller. Filmed on location throughout Europe, he fits his vision of Old World into a new format, featuring film, along with his carnival barker’s voice, avant-garde sensibilities and genius vision.

Set in Bavaria, Serbia, Romania, the Black Forest, Amsterdam, New Zealand and the swamps of England, Davidson re-envisions the fables that define our morality, blending past and future into a time outside the modern age in this fabulous zigzag quest for the stories of our day.

Using his unique and compelling live music as the soundtrack to his own short films, woven in the style of David Lynch, Bella Tar and Murnau, Davidson transports us into a flickering realm of Grimms fairy tales, Expressionist cinema, Brechtian epic theatre, forgotten values and lost stories.

Location: Harkness Henry’s Emporium of Scintillating Wonders
