Still House

  Through his company Still House, Dan Canham is developing visually poetic work within a variety of forms that includes theatre, dance, short film and audio-visual installation.

It is performance as an attempt to discover the people with whom we share the world. Performance that is at once exploratory and immediately felt.

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.
