Told by the Wind

  • Show Information

Told by the Wind is a performance of movement and text that ‘dances’ an inner landscape and invites the audience to enter an imaginative space of possibilities. Critics have described the performance as ‘hypnotic’, ‘contemplative’, ‘mesmerizing,’ and ‘hauntingly poetic’.

Told by the Wind previewed at the Evora, Portugal festival, premiered in the UK, and has toured internationally, most recently to recently Tokyo. The show was co-created by an interdisciplinary team of artists working internationally including award-winning playwright/dramaturg Kaite O’Reilly (Ted Hughes Award for New Works of Poetry for Persians with National Theatre Wales), performer Phillip Zarrilli (Artistic Director/Llanarth Group), and dancer/choreographer/performance-maker Jo Shapland.

The artists are all associated with the the University of Exeter’s Drama Department: Phillip Zarrilli is Emeritus Professor of Performance Practice; Kaite O’Reilly was an AHRC Creative Fellow and is now Honorary Fellow; Jo Shapland received her MFA degree in Performance Practice.
