ARC & Mike McGrother as The Wild Rover presents

The Teesside ARChetypes: An exploration of Stockton

Join Mike as he begins his exploration of the rich tapestry of Stockton on Tees and its archetypal characters: The Caregiver, The Outlaw, The Magician, The Creative, The Innocent, The Ruler, The Sage, The Explorer, The Hero, The Lover, The Jester, and The Everyman. The first instalment of a musical, observational residency where, as yet unrevealed residents will be given their own spotlight whilst new and old stories of the people of Stockton are shared in our Wild Rover’s inimitable style!

We are told there are twelve archetypes which reflect humanity: The Innocent; The Everyman; The Hero; The Outlaw; The Explorer; The Creator; The Ruler; The Magician; The Lover; The Caregiver; The Jester, and The Sage. They live amongst us – and they ARE us! But who and where are they?!

Each month at ARC, in a brand new residency from Teesside’s very own Wild Rover and Wildcats of Kilkenny frontman Mike McGrother, comes a series of gigs celebrating those Teessiders that embody those archetypes. Join Mike as he shares songs, stories and observations revealing often hidden but still (extra)ordinary Teesside people and events in his own, inimitable and ‘mischievous’ style.

Expect some special guests, musical collaborations and, knowing Mike, a few surprises thrown in for good measure. Mark these in your diary and enjoy a show each month that will leave you laughing, crying, thinking and learning so much more about our wonderful Teesside community and the people living in it.
