Our Lives: An Infinite Improvisation Poetry Dancing

(This is a past event and is no longer running)

It is with great sadness that we have to announce that The Coronet Theatre will be closed until the Autumn season. The Coronet hopes to reschedule as much of this outstanding work as possible – more information to follow as soon as possible. Please see here for the most up to date information. Please consider making a donation or joining as a member to enjoy the theatre when we are open once more.


A dance-drama about life as a constant improvisation, presented by Charlotte Jarvis, choreographer and dance artist, and Ben Okri, poet novelist & playwright, and writer of  The Coronet Theatre’s popular adaptation of The Outsider. They interweave their craft to create something new and intimate, political and meditative.

Poetry responds to movement and movement to poetry. Along the way they brush against history, injustice, the passions of motherhood, and the toughness of hope.

Each day brings new challenges, but dance and poetry respond with ritual and improvisation to the heart of the mystery of life.

Two artists engage this mystery.

This acclaimed production premiered at The Edinburgh Festival, Dance Base, 2019.
