This Tide of Humber / A Contains Strong Language film

Behind the scenes of JoinedUp Dance Company's interpretation of Imtiaz Dharker's specially commissioned poem, an evocation of the city of Hull and the River Humber.

This Tide of Humber

JoinedUp Dance Company's interpretation of Imtiaz Dharker's specially commissioned poem.

A new piece of contemporary dance inspired by Imtiaz Dharker’s poem This Tide of Humber.

The poem was commissioned for the Contains Strong Language festival, and it captures the inexplicable pull of a city where dislocation and separation mix with images of water and sky to create a unique sense of place.

Dharker’s evocation of the city of Hull and the River Humber is interpreted by JoinedUp Dance Company to create a wistful, enigmatic performance piece with an original score by composer Joe Roper. We take a look behind the scenes at the creators of this dance piece and speak to Imtiaz about her poem and her reaction to the interpretation.
