Jeanefer Jean-Charles

What happens when two unwritten languages meet: the spoken language of patois (French Creole) and the movement language of dance.

British-Caribbean choreographer Jeanefer-Jean Charles MBE tells a story of lost languages, longing and belonging through traditional Caribbean choreography, contemporary dance and an original music score.

Join us on a journey to rediscover hidden voices and identities that are rooted in dialects that are buried within us as we reawaken stories and generations of the past.

Commissioned by Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and Brighton Festival.

Brighton Festival is part of Without Walls, a network of organisations bringing innovative outdoor arts to towns and cities across England. Find out more on withoutwalls.uk.com.
