Earth Birth (2003)

Project Summary

Performed as part of the three year Thanet Residency project. Earth Birth was devised by members of the community in Thanet and subsequently performed by them in 2003 at the Artwise Youth Centre in Ramsgate.


A seagull flies high in the sky over Thanet. Earth below, air around, the waters of the sea, the fire of the setting sun. Earth Birth is a celebration of the messiness of life. Song, music, movement and the spoken word. A kaleidoscopic, birds-eye view of Planet Thanet.
