A duet made by Claire Henderson Davis and Bettina Carpi for Refugee Week 2018. It follows the interweaving stories of three pregnant women: a Syrian woman journeying to the UK, a British woman describing her struggle with poverty, and the biblical story of Mary visiting Elizabeth to share her good news.
The dance piece explores themes of loss, endurance and new beginnings through a female lense, not in a linear or literal way but through evoking the inner, emotional journey of the women - piecing together the fragments of lives radically changed. The dance interacts with an original soundtrack by composer Gary Lloyd, recorded at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall by the Scottish Session Orchestra conducted by Adam Robinson.
