Body Talk

Body TalkEach of us has a unique body language made special by our individual lived experience. Choreographer Chris Owen recognised this quality in EncoreEast. As we followed his direction, we became less self-aware, more honest and deeply connected with our own bodies and one another.

Produced by documentary filmmaker Eleanor Mortimer, Body Talk places authenticity at its heart, following an aesthetic sense to allow time, breath and sensitivity of movement to structure the narrative that is EncoreEast.

Body Talk was made in the Autumn before the Covid-19 pandemic. It is a poignant reminder of the comfort of being close to each other, of how much physical contact was a part of everyday life.
