Hybrid dance theatre with live music

by Company Carpi

"It's like taking a bath - in art!"

Alice Billen, Candle String Quintet

"At its core, When You Light A Candle has

the most gorgeous heart"

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

 

 

 

When You Light a Candle... is the first commission of its kind,

and was created in partnership with:

Dance Consortia North West

Lancaster Arts & Culture Warrington

 

With generous additional support from:

Arts Council England, Swiss Cultural Fund UK, Cheshire Dance,

The Arts Centre Edge Hill University
