Dancing With Words

An exploration of the relationship between two art forms, Dancing with Words is the culmination of a project that has seen dancers and poets collaborating to push boundaries and take new, exciting approaches to creating work. The pairs have worked together  to create a trilogy of entirely new performances.

Presented on National Poetry Day 2019. Showcasing poets and dancers: Lydia Allison and Akeim Toussaint Buck; Lucy Burnett and Mitul Sengupta and Shamshad Khan and Sophie Hutchinson

Funded by Arts Council England and produced by Books Up North, in partnership with Kala Sangam.
