One event on 21st June 2018 at 7:30pm
Dance theatre performance by Claire Henderson Davis and Bettina Capri
Take Refuge Under My Shade is a duet made by Claire Henderson Davis and Bettina Carpi for Refugee Week 2018. It follows the interweaving stories of three pregnant women: a Syrian woman journeying to the UK, a British woman describing her struggle with poverty, and the story of Mary visiting Elizabeth to share her good news. The piece explores themes of loss, endurance and new beginnings through a female lense, not in a linear or literal way but through evoking the inner, emotional journey of the women – piecing together the fragments of lives radically changed.. The dance interacts with an original soundtrack by composer Gary Lloyd, recorded at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall by the Scottish Session Orchestra conducted by Adam Robinson.
Performances at 1pm & 7.30pm.
Tickets are available from the Storyhouse website – link below.
This performance is part of a series of events as part of Chester Refugee Week, 19 – 25 June 2018 happening in Chester Cathedral and Storyhouse and has been made possible with funding from Arts Council England granted to the creators.
