Journey’s End

Event Date:

From 20th March

Until 24th March


This hugely influential anti-war piece, written in 1928 by R. C. Sherriff, is a powerful reminder of the horrors of war. What is less well known about the piece, however, are the strong links between Dartington and the play – it owes much of it’s success to the financial backing and patronage of Leonard and Dorothy Elmhirst, founders of Dartington.

Directed by Leon Winston, Dartington Playgoers are proud to be presenting this piece in the centenary year of the end of World War 1.

Tuesday 20th to Saturday 24th March, 7.30pm – Studio 31 (Hex), Dartington

Tickets £10 / Concessions £9

Carl Orff’s oratorio Carmina Burana is one of the best-known pieces of 20th century music. First performed in 1937 in Frankfurt and approved by the Nazis as an alternative to what they saw as decadent avant-garde music, it has survived this taint to be much loved by audiences of all kinds, including heavy metal groups, rappers and advertising directors. With Handel’s Messiah it is one of the most widely performed oratorios ever written. Tickets (£18.00 (unreserved); students & U16s £7.50) are available from Dartington Box Office 01803 847070 or on-line

Hauschka – Volker Bertelmann

The sonic landscapes created by German pianist/composer Volker Bertelmann — better known as Hauschka — sound like the work of a whole ensemble, so it is an astonishing sight to see just one lone figure onstage. Hauschka achieves these otherworldly effects through careful curation of a prepared piano, employing everything from ping pong balls to aluminium foil. His latest release, What If, is an irrepressible outpouring of creativity that reinvents piano music in a dramatic and exceptional fashion.

 Alongside regularly sharing his virtuosic one man performances around the world, his work as a soundtrack composer has seen him working on scores for a number of documentaries and feature films, not least James Franco’s adaptation of John Steinbeck’s In Dubious Battle and, alongside Dustin O’Halloran’s Lion for which he was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe.
