There will be an opportunity to feedback after the performance, which will help to take the project to its next stage.
Before, Katherine climbed Mount Everest.
Now, her daughter dreams of droughts, tsunamis and wildfires.
Katherine left her daughter to conquer a mountain. Her tales of nearly touching the stars became Kate's bedtime stories. Higher, further, beyond. Now it's time for Kate to climb her own mountain. A flight to Nepal will melt 8.7 square meters of Arctic ice, and she's crying in the juice aisle about buying single use plastic.
Blending movement, text & music, this work in progress examines a mother and daughter’s stories unravelling in the face of climate crisis, and what might blossom in their place.
This is a collaboration between Holly Robinson, Charlotte Fraser, Eve Allin, Alice Boyd and Martha Godfrey. Performed and co-created by Charlotte Merriam and Sophie Steer.
Supported by Arts Council England.
Suitable for ages 14+
