Take a walk into nature and tune into the stories the landscape holds.

Murmurations is a guided tour into nature you’ll never forget – a woman on a mission, a couple in conflict, a man with a plan, and a botanist’s last stand… and other invasive species of the human kind… 

Through live scenes and songs, poetry and physical theatre, comedy and tragedy, Murmurations explores what we need from nature and what nature needs from us in a world recovering from sickness … 

A play by Steve Waters and Tangled Feet

Steve Waters is a playwright whose plays include 'The Contingency Plan', 'Temple' and Limehouse' as well as his acclaimed series for Radio 4, 'Song of the Reed'; he is Professor of Scriptwriting at the University of East Anglia and his books include 'A Life in 16 Films: How Cinema Made a Playwright'.

Stunning. ” - Twitter - @beccalewissmith - “ Amazing bit of live theatre about climate crisis at Wicken Fen tonight. Top marks to Steve Waters and @tangledfeet @nationaltrust @curry_nathan ” - Twitter - @TerryMac999 - “ Thank you @tangledfeet and Steve Waters for the beautiful and profound performance of 'Murmurations' this evening. Surprising and moving, it explored grief and our connection to nature. @RSPB_Strumpshaw was the perfect backdrop. ” - Twitter - @Kateblinco - “ "Murmurations, a play that’s also a guided tour of Wicken Fen Nature Reserve, is an unusual exploration of wildlife and the experience of being in the open – and a delightful bit of playwriting by outdoor theatre experts Tangled Feet.” ” - Cambridge Independent - “ Heavenly show and very moving. Like nothing I have ever seen before. ” - Wicken Fen audience member - “ Murmurations feels freshly innovative; it’s part of a wider creative movement that approaches environmental subjects with a positive sense of natural wonderment, combined with empathy, fun and a lightness of touch ” - Ruth Kettle-Frisby - The Havering Daily - “ “This remarkable company lead us on a deeply valuable journey through our times; while the great Perthshire trees whisper and sometimes roar around us, and the powerful Tay surges on its way, reminding us always of the mighty natural world on which humanity depends, for its own survival.” ” - The Scotsman - “ It’s a totally immersive experience and one that is strangely moving. As the piece draws to a close, it’s hard not to feel somewhat changed by the experience. ” - Glen Pearce - The Reviews Hub -
