Mercurial Dance will be presenting an extract of their new dance theatre piece, Route 10. The Route 10 project explores our relationship to health and wellbeing, and our bodies’ capacity to heal. The piece has been based on conversations with both health professionals and people along the no.10 bus route and is the first in a series of works planned by Mercurial Dance around this subject matter.
This free performance which includes two professional dancers, will be presented at Coventry Cathedral on Saturday 9th March (10 minute duration; performance times 3pm, 4pm and 5pm).
After the performance you are invited to share your experiences.
The no 10 bus route in Coventry has been used in reports as a metaphor for articulating health inequalities in the city. On average, people live ten years longer as you follow the route of the no.10 bus from the east of Coventry to the west: an explicit link between the impact socio economic deprivation on life expectancy.
