Movement, poetry & the writing body
Vital Signs explores the creative possibilities of poetry and movement in contemporary performance. The project builds on long-standing collaboration between Scott Thurston (poet) and Sarie Mairs Slee (choreographer) and supports the creation of new transdisciplinary art work.
Vital Signs also seeks to connect with other writers, movers, and artists interested in working across poetry, movement and interdisciplinary collaboration. Vital Signs seeks to connect and expand the community working across poetry and physical performance, sharing in a range of digital and live events.
With funding support from Arts Council England, we are launching the project with the Vital Signs Festival, 28-30 September 2018. This three-day festival, in partnership with the University of Salford and The Other Room, will bring dancers, writers and other creatives together for an exciting programme of workshops and performances.
