Adam Holloway, Cheshire Dance

"Climate celebration, amid climate crisis"

Lancaster Arts

Created by choreographer Bettina Carpi and composer Gary Lloyd

 

Featuring a specially commissioned poetry cycle

by Costa Award winning writer Mary Talbot

 

Inspired by natural forces, the work is as much a celebration of nature and its resilience as it is a call to awareness about the dangerous state of our climate, our habitat and our planet.

 

The title of the piece is inspired by a quote from the novel

A Wizard Of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin
