  • Kimberley is a talented contemporary dancer and choreographer who is also a teacher, Candoco Artist and runs her own inclusive dance company. In this sensitive performance fuelled by curiosity and a sense of humanity, we are invited to see the body as an unsent letter. Pen meets paper and skin, and words may get lost, forgotten or overwritten. We’re mesmerised as movement reminds us of that letter that we want to write, but for some reason never do; or maybe it's that letter that we have written, but never sent.
