A dancer and poet respond to our times.

Charlotte Jarvis, choreographer and dance artist, presents this dance-drama with poet and novelist Ben Okri, about life as a constant improvisation. It is the dance of poetry and the poetry of dance.
They interweave to create something new and intimate, political and meditative.
Poetry responds to movement and movement to poetry. Along the way they brush against history, the secret lives of women, the passions of motherhood, the cry against climate catastrophe, and the toughness of hope.
Each day brings new challenges, but dance and poetry respond with the constancy and improvisation that is at the heart of the mystery of life.
Two artists engage this mystery.
