Weʼve raised £120 to fund a brilliant new theatrical production of The Edda, Tolkien's inspiration for The Lord of the Rings.
- Norwich, Norfolk, UK
- Funded on Tuesday, 14th August 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I am a PhD student, studying The Ancient Edda, which is the source of all Norse myths - the body of 12th century writing which first introduces us to Odin, Thor, Loki, Freya and all the rest! The Ancient Edda is also the direct inspiration for Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
As part of my studies I am staging an exciting new theatrical production of it, and need some help to get this wonderful project off the ground. I already have a fantastic team involved including actors, a choreographer and a circus troupe(!). As well as the performance, I will be workshopping with students from the local university, giving them the opportunity to work alongside professional actors. I am committed to delivering an exciting and educational product.
This event will take place at Norwich Castle in February 2019. I need a little help getting this project out there. Please give what little you can afford - everything helps! If you can't afford to contribute financially, please help by sharing.
