Created by Dan Canham and the company Produced by MAYK Running time: approximately 1hr Suitable for 12+ Two years of Dan’s captured conversations with eel-catchers, horse breeders and young farmers are fused in this ethereal work of documentary dance theatre which gets to the heart of the fens – a beautiful, bleak and mysterious expanse of flat land. Ours Was the Fen Country is a celebration of, and eulogy to, universal stories of rural communities that are fading from view; an exhilarating, poetic look at the inevitability of change from the voices of those who still know the old worlds. "Canham’s unadorned presence compels attention. Whatever it is that makes you want to watch somebody move, he’s got it." Donald Hutera, "One of the most original talents around." The Independent Presented in partnership with Dance4
