chasing tales

devised and directed by Emma Webb and George Bean

An intergenerational and site-specific performance in the city library as part of Oxford’s annual dance festival. Chasing Tales was commissioned to involve different groups from the community with the common thread of celebrating books, reading and the importance of words through our lives.

AnaMorphic developed the material through workshops with the three different groups, incorporating participatory methods to give all three groups a voice.
