Lesley Telford/Inverso - Spooky Action
Spooky Action is inspired by Einstein's famous phrase referring to particles that are so closely linked, they share the same existence. A collaboration with poet/performer Barbara Adler, this intricate ensemble work weaves together contemporary dance, poetic storytelling and original composition to probe the mysterious ways we act on each other’s lives.
In 1982 the Dance Committee of UNESCO's International Theatre Institute founded International Dance Day, to be celebrated every year on April 29, the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810) who is regarded as the creator of modern ballet. Its goal is to celebrate dance around the world, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross political, cultural and ethnic barriers and to bring people together with a common language - dance.
