Written and performed by Daniel Bye and Boff Whalley
Commissioned by Beaford Arts and others TBA
Supported by ArtsDepot
Dan and Boff decided to run a series of routes from the centre of the city in which they found themselves, to the top of the peak overlooking the city.
In story and in song, this is the story of what they found out – about the relationship between city and country, between wild and controlled, about land ownership, about why we’re drawn to wild places – and about what we’re really running from.
These Hills Are Ours is the most personal piece of work either Dan or Boff has made, the most heartfelt, and the most direct. It’s really funny and genuinely moving.
Theatremaker Daniel Bye’s award-winning shows include The Price of Everything, Going Viral and Instructions for Border Crossing. Boff Whalley is probably best-known for thirty years playing guitar in Chumbawamba, but these days he is a playwright, songwriter, and choir leader. Together they have collaborated on several very large scale community projects; this is their first theatre piece together.
