“The Running Hare”  - 24th June 2018

Our performance project for the Isle of Ely Arts Festival 2018 is “The Running Hare”, a new one-hour show combining contemporary dance and poetry. The title comes from the book by farmer and writer John Lewis-Stempel and it fits like a glove with the Arts Festival’s theme for 2018, “Flora and Fauna”. We’re exploring themes from the book, to do with the reduction in the number and variety of flora and fauna in the land the author took over  and how the natural world bounced back when allowed to.  We’re collaborating with Kate Caiomhe Arthur, the current Fenland Poet Laureate, who won the title with her amazing poem “Tree”. We’ll be creating and rehearsing the choreography over the spring and summer. Music is by “contemporary classical” composers Yann Tiersen, Nils Frahm and Eric Whitacre. Should be a great show!  

 The performance is at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday 24th June at The Paradise Centre, Ely. Tickets: £6 adults / Under 16s free,  in advance from the Bablyon Gallery, Waterside, Ely and on the door on the day.
