Moving with the Trouble: official selection for London International Short Film Festival

Activity: Public engagement and outreachPublic speaking engagements


Moving with the Trouble confronts our dispossessions, it grasps themes of loss, vulnerability, othering and care that chime with the global pandemic and ecological mourning. Extending from the Moving Kinship Hubs for people living with young onset dementia and the legacy of the live dance theatre work I’ve Lost You Only To Discover That I Have Gone Missing, this dance film considers how we touch the other within, the dark matter, and invites audiences to move with us as we move with the trouble. Filmed at the end of the second UK lockdown and on location at the Chilworth Gunpowder Mills deep in the Surrey Hills, the film presents five site-responsive solos combining spoken word, dance and an original soundscore. Moving with the Trouble and the feminist research that informs it, reflects on transgenerational mourning, the bonds of resistance, and our infinite relationship with the more-than-human.
