Find yourself right in the middle of an immersive world, from ancient rite to banging club.
What has changed in 4,000 years of dance culture?
It’s May Day 1988, the Second Summer of Love. Martin Green (fearless inventor and accordion player in esteemed folk trio Lau) is nine years old and morris dancing at dawn while the ravers are still going in the next field.
What’s the difference? What’s the same?
Martin Green leads us through a mind-altering, bespoke audience experience that asks if trance state is actually part of the culture of these islands – have we forgotten it? Or denied it? Pass through The Portal and you will become part of this beautiful and exhilarating world of music, movement and ritual.
