MOTUS O DANCE THEATRE & MARINA NEMAT

The live dance and narrative – ‘Fugitive of Tehran’

BUY TICKETS

Jack, Cynthia & James, the artistic directors of MOTUS O Dance Theatre, first met Marina Nemat at a conference about the Arts in Education where they were both presenting. Jack, Cynthia and James  were so deeply taken with Marina’s story, that they contacted her with the idea of presenting her story in dance.  Their thought was not to dance her story, but to use movement to illustrate her story telling.

After a number of meetings, the work began to take form. The issue of how to support Marina’s story through movement and not ‘hijack’ it, was crucial.  Together they decided that Marina would be a ‘performer’ in the piece. That the story-teller would not be relegated to the background, to a voice over. It was important not only to hear Marina tell the story, but to see her tell it, as we watched Motus O dance it.

The result is brings us to a new place in storytelling: a combination of the spoken word, movement, video and music.
