Site-specific theatre in Founders Heritage Park, Nelson Arts Festival

Found Tales creates theatre amongst the creaking nooks and crannies of Founders Heritage Park, inspired by the buildings themselves, objects within them and Nelson history.

Found Tales offers audience members the unusual experience of being guided from one performance to another, each set in a different space. The park’s old buildings become venues for a variety of performance styles, from puppetry to sound scape to storytelling. The scenes all stand alone but are linked by being inspired by Founders Heritage Park’s special buildings or objects within them, be it a bus, a boat or a dentist’s chair.
Collaborating for the first time, two celebrated companies, Nelson's own Body in Space and international production company Three Bridges, invite you to look behind door after door to reveal new tales of old Nelson.

This production takes place in several locations and involves some walking.
All performances are indoors but the walks between are outside. Please dress appropriately.

Suitable for those 16 years and over
Duration: approx. 1hr 45min, including interval
