The production of Stolen, performed by The Devil’s Violin, was certainly an intriguing one.
There wasn’t much to it in terms of a visual performance with the attention on the storyteller, Daniel Morden, and the two other performers, Sarah Moody and Oliver Wilson-Dickson, one with a violin and the other, a cello.
It was the combining of story and music which was interesting.
However, I could not keep up with the story but it was a full house and the seemingly specialised and mature audience seemed to have really been enjoying themselves.
This particular type of performance is not for everyone, and although I didn’t particularly enjoy it, I appreciate the effort that was put into it and their performers passion as they presented it.
As a young reviewer, I found this performance fairly challenging and only a little entertaining. However, I would recommend this show to perhaps older members who would definitely appreciate it being unique different.
This performance took place at Chapter in Cardiff on Wednesday 22nd November 2017.
