TERRA/EARTH

February 2019

A group of classmates is torn apart by the opportunity to perform their own dance. As they disagree and bicker, two distinct physical groups emerge and separate into opposing teams.


When a strange outsider appears — out of step with everyone else — the divide is disrupted. A contemporary narrative dance piece about individuality, community and heritage.


I wanted to write a play that used the language of the body as well as the tongue. The point where text meets movement is a fascinating place to explore, and I thought it important to engage young people who might not be interested in straight performance, but something more dynamic. I also wanted to address how many judgements we make when we meet new people, both conscious and unconscious. — Nell Leyshon
