Starting on 19th August at 9pm, BBC2 is screening an important new documentary series called EXTRAORDINARY RITUALS, narrated by Simon Reeve.  

As part of the project, ORIGINS has worked with the Open University to create supporting materials, which are available online at the link below.

The materials, edited by Prof. Graham Harvey, include short videos about the 2017 Festival: the Opening Ceremony, the Remembering Pocahontas event, and the Ritual Scissor dance.

Featured artists include: Sierra Tasi Baker, Heath Bergersen, José Navarro, Sani Muliaumaseali'i and Andrew Thomas.  You'll also catch sight of our Artisti Director Michael Walling and our friend Mark Rylance!
