The Comedy of Change

‘This collaborative piece was created in 2009 to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s On The Origin of Species. Evolution is such a huge subject: each of the collaborators on this piece came to their own artistic conclusions when dealing with Darwin’s brilliant ideas – as change affects all our work and the world we live in.

I would like to thank all those who have collaborated on this piece, Darwin’s great-grandson Stephen Keynes, The Drummond Fund and most especially Professor Nicola Clayton from Cambridge University for her intense educational input into my choreography.’
