Choreographer and dance artist Charlotte Jarvis and poet, novelist and playwright Ben Okri respond to our times, in this dance-drama about life as a constant improvisation.

Thur 21 – Sat 23 Oct 2021, 6:30pm.

In this piece, Ben Okri and Charlotte Jarvis interweave their craft to create something new and intimate, political and meditative.

Poetry responds to movement and movement to poetry. Along the way they brush against history, injustice, the passions of motherhood, and the toughness of hope.

Each day brings new challenges, but dance and poetry respond with ritual and improvisation to the heart of the mystery of life.

Two artists engage this mystery.

This acclaimed production premiered at The Edinburgh Festival, Dance Base, 2019.
