The Language of Dance
Ian McMillan and guests explore the language of dance and the relationship between poetry and movement. With Ismene Brown, Scott Thurston, Nathan Walker and Maria Ferguson.
What is the relationship between poetry and movement? The Verb seeks to illuminate the conversation between dance and poetry with the help of Ismene Brown, a dance critic who's written for the Spectator and the Telegraph; the poet Scott Thurston; the writer and performer Nathan Walker whose slow-collage-word-terrains challenge how we read poetry; and spoken word artist Maria Ferguson whose show Fat Girls Don't Dance explores her relationship with the F-word (food) with a blend of storytelling, theatre and killer moves.
