Fenland Elegy

Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May, 11am-4pm

This is a past event which has now ended.

The 5 minute film will run on a loop.

A short and stirring dance film shot at sunset in the Fens of East Anglia, Fenland Elegy is a collaboration between filmmaker Dan Canham, Krump dancers Katie Boag and Ash Goosey and composer Benji Bower (Terra Collective).

The film combines heart-rending symphonic music with the immense technical and expressive form of Krump dance to lament the passing of a landscape.

Made as part of a residency through Norfolk & Norwich Festival.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
