Emily Hennessey & Sheema Mukherjee: Holy Cow!


Storyteller Emily Hennessey and sitar player Sheema Mukherjee conjure fast-flowing worlds of celestial celebrities, cosmic estate agents, daredevil demons and gods behaving (very) badly in these Indian stories of liberation, lies, love and life.

When the Holy Cow is stolen, it sets in motion an epic chain of events. The River Goddess hurls herself from the skies, surging from mountains to sea, leaving no stone – or ego – unturned as she washes illusion from the truth. In a world held up by elephants and threatened by greed, heroes, mothers and tenderness are all found in unexpected places. This spellbinding show is bursting with humour, dance, ritual and playful energy, with occasional bubbles and unpredictable watermelons!
