Extra performance added! 4pm, Tuesday 30 July
Poetry and percussion combine in this new dance theatre piece with live music.
Company Carpi presents the tight and rigorous work based on the poetry cycle The Stumbling Block by acclaimed poet, author and sculptor Brian Catling.
The stage is set for two drummers and two dancers, along with multiple voices “on tape”, all exploring how to overcome personal, societal, emotional, psychological and all manner of other stumbling blocks.
The Stumbling Block is conducted by composer and producer Gary Lloyd and choreographed by Bettina Carpi.
Dancers: Gabrielle Orr & Paige Lyon
Drummers: Tom Maude & Paul Sheard
Company Carpi’s work is driven by the desire to communicate, explore and comment on issues of equality and the role of the arts within society and our daily lives.
The evening performance will be followed by a Q&A with Brian Catling, Gary Lloyd and Bettina Carpi, chaired by festival director Clark Rundell.
