The City Breathes

Category: Show

A dance and spoken word trio exploring health and wellbeing.
‘The City Breathes’ is a poetic and engaging trio, featuring two dancers and a spoken word artist. It is a response to the health challenges that we face in our cities, and speaks to how mindfulness and connectedness are important pathways on our journeys towards healing and wellbeing. The spoken word is weaved into and around the movement, almost becoming a community prayer; a call to action for healing and connections across our communities. ‘The City Breathes’ was created based on research undertaken with diverse community groups in Coventry, and in consultation with academics at Warwick University and Coventry University.
