“Come, take care, leave your fear up there…”
For tens of thousands of years, people have ventured underground in order to experience something out of the ordinary: to take shelter, create, hide, escape, or do something they should not be doing. Join us at Kents Cavern as we gather for our own extraordinary expedition; a journey to find the most important thing.
Devised in collaboration with a steering group of archaeologists, geologists, historians, cavers and former miners, Beneath Our Feet is a promenade performance that will use dance and live music to tell the story of the underground. Your guide, musician Lou Vilstrup, will draw you into an unknown world, where the memories and secrets of Kents Cavern will dance before you.
Beneath Our Feet is the most recent work by award-winning dance company Made By Katie Green, who specialise in making dance performance work for museums and heritage sites. With original music by Max Perryment and Lou Vilstrup (Dear Joy) and new writing by Anna Selby.
“An emotional and evocative journey”
“I felt like I was entering another world”
