Abstract / Summary:

Created in collaboration with Grace Sellwood and Emily Dobson for the Awakening Tour 2015 - a triple bill featuring original works by award winning choreographer Yael Flexer, Simon Birch and Cornwall based dance company Freefall.

‘Words move…’ took its inspiration from T.S.Eliot’s poem Burnt Norton by drawing upon the rich imagery of Eliot’s words to create a poem of movement. The concepts of time (past, present and future), rhythm and verse were the focus for this work. It was performed by Grace Selwood and Emily Dobson, the founders and directors of Freefall, to cello music by David Darling and with lighting designed by Martin Fenton. 'Words move...' was part of a triple bill that toured twice during 2015.
