‘My mother stands at the water’s edge.
At the water’s edge stands a tree.
At the water’s edge, on the very edge,
at the water’s edge… Is me.’

At the water’s edge, beneath the shade of an ancient tree, a mother forms a perimeter to protect herself and her child from an unspeakable darkness.

The tide ebbs and flows, the years pass, and the boy is taught stories of the dangers that lay beyond the safety of her embrace.

But one day the boy awakes to find his mother is gone…

and a stranger arrives at the perimeter’s edge.

The boy must walk out into a new world. A world of gods and monsters.

Experience this fantastical journey discovering the light amidst the darkness and take a deep dive into the depths of your consciousness to rewrite the stories that try to define us.

Dark, humorous, fiery and honest… 

‘I AM KEVIN’ is a provocation to rediscover the power and possibility that lies beneath the surface of us all.

Directed by Mydd Pharo & created with the communities of Cornwall ‘I am Kevin’ was a promenade performance which took place on Carlyon Beach 6th to 20th August  2022
