Ours Was The Fen Country is listed with both the National Theatre - The Shed and Still House.
Presented by Still House/Dan Canham and MAYK
Created by Dan Canham
For the past two years Dan Canham has been capturing conversations with people of the fens in East Anglia. Eel-catchers, horse breeders and young farmers have all been interviewed.
In this ethereal piece of dance-theatre Dan and his team fuse movement and sound with the words and memories of their native collaborators to get to the heart of the Fens, a beautiful, bleak and mysterious expanse of flat land.
In a place where the soil is shrinking by the height of a person in the life of a person, Ours Was The Fen Country is a poetic look at a disappearing community and the inevitability of change.
