About the Event
As part of events taking place to mark the COP26 conference, St Anne’s, Soho will host a screening of All Creation Waits, the film of a dance theatre performance telling a contemporary story of St Francis and St Clare in the context of climate change. Originally a live performance, the piece had to be filmed due to the Covid pandemic.
Two children worried about climate change ask St Francis and St Clare for help inspiring people to address our environmental emergency and save the planet. All Creation Waits is the story which follows, imagining a contemporary Francis and Clare, coming to terms with the need to leave their existing lives and join the movement for change. It is the story of a growing friendship between Clare, a symbol of the earth herself, wounded and desecrated, and Francis, who is first disturbed by Clare’s arrival before being ultimately transformed through their relationship.
The piece is made by Claire Henderson Davis, Fraser Paterson and Ian Bysh. The text is by Malcolm Guite with a soundtrack by Gary Lloyd.
The screening will be followed by a discussion.
