Dancing With Words

Kala Sangam, Bradford, BD1 4TY

7.30pm

Pay What You Decide

An exploration of the relationship between two art forms, Dancing with Words is the culmination of a project that has seen dancers and poets collaborating to push boundaries and take new, exciting approaches to creating work.

The pairs have worked together to incorporate movement and words – with the artists inspiring and being inspired by each other simultaneously to create a trilogy of entirely new performances.

Funded by Arts Council England and produced by Books Up North in partnership with Kala Sangam.
