Price £10

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.

Thursday 26 - Saturday 28 March, 18:30.

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.

Q: One could say, it's possibly one of the oddest epidemics to be recorded in world history - Strasbourg’s three-month dancing plague that saw people, mostly women, dancing, seemingly unable to stop. At its height, as many as fifteen people were dying each day. The final toll is unknown but, if such a daily death rate was true, could have been into the hundreds. The question is, in which year did the dancing plague take place?
A: .1) 1733 .2) 1609 .3) 1518 .4) 1200
