Brother Sun, Sister Moon
Saint Francis of Assisi’s Canticle of the Creatures
Southwark Cathedral and St Mark's Church, Teddington, London
In 1224, Saint Francis of Assisi wrote a simple hymn of praise that beautifully encompasses all that he experienced in the Italian countryside.
Almost 800 years later, Katherine Paterson reimagines the hymn in poetic language that shares Francis’s honest and direct gaze at all aspects of life and resonates with the joy, light and shadow found there.
In 2021 we will dance this hymn through a suite of dances created by Judy and choreographed to music by many different people.
We will learn the dances in St Mark’s Church, Teddington and on Monday afternoon we will move into the beauty that is Southwark Cathedral to dance this suite in The Nave which has been removed of all its chairs.
Cost: £220 per person.
This includes light lunches on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and teas, coffee and biscuits throughout.
Evening meals are eaten in local restaurants, pubs or takeaways and are arranged and paid for individually. It does not include any workshop material CD dance notation that you choose to buy.
You need to arrange your own accommodation and travel to Southwark on Monday.
There is a Travel Lodge situated in Teddington and a Premier or The Holiday Inn in Kingston.
Numbers: are strictly limited to 36 participants.
