Dance Spells

Jen Cunningham and Suzi Cunningham

Dance Spells is a project, inspired by the book The Lost Words by Robert McFarlane and Jackie Morris, working towards a performance experience that intertwines words, sounds, imagery, bodies and nature. These are the ingredients of our spells, to conjure the natural world into being, to journey into the imagination where everyone can be re-enchanted with curiosity, the magic of nature and the lost worlds of our childhood.

This residency will go deeper into creating characteristics and qualities relating to memories, colours, smells and tones surrounding The Lost Words. Rediscovering our own lost words, we will draw upon our shared love of humour and embodying nature with the view to inspire people to do the same.
