Dancing the Knife
Iranian dancer Medea Mahdavi brings together dance with words, music and film to explore life in exile. A refugee s life teeters on a knife-edge in a thrilling work of past and present, Medea Mahdavi presents a dance of memory and imagination where the knife-point spins and turns from danger to spirit and hopefulness. She encounters bureaucrats, street performers and an auctioneer, whilst on the voyage to making a new home. Vivid images from Medea s Iranian childhood sent award winning poet Philip Gross exploring home and homelessness and the real lives of refugees. The result is a unique collaboration of dance, poetry and theatre by turns sensual, funny, thought-provoking and direct. It is a haunting and topical experience that, once seen, you will not forget.
