Since 2017, JoinedUp Dance Company have been working with some of the most distinguished poets in the UK to produce rich visual experiences as part of BBC Contains Strong Language.
This year a TRIO of performances will be held that use contemporary dance, projection, text and costume to provide an immersive experience for the audience.
These pieces of work are ‘The Tide of Humber’ based on Imtiaz Dharker’s specially-commissioned poem; ‘Still’ based on Poet Laureate Simon Armitage’s collection commissioned by 1418 Now; and a new piece, ‘Pas de Deux’, based on Scottish Makar Jackie Kay’s poem of the same name.
Readings by Imtiaz Dharker, Simon Armitage and Jackie Kay will be included
