Delivered by Live Well and Dance
Vallum Hadriani is a promenade piece choreographed by Pelican Theatre, in collaboration with the Live Well and Dance with Parkinson’s performance collective, supported by dance practitioners Molly Grey and Olivia Paddison.
Hadrian’s Wall is a long-standing reminder of the might of the Roman Empire; the strength and bravery of the soldiers who defended it, and the resilience of the wall itself to have survived 1900 years.
It is also the site of the 83-mile Hadrian’s Wall Path; a beautiful walk through some of England’s best countryside, where thousands of people come every year to enjoy the serenity of nature, and observe the fragile, crumbling remains of the wall itself.
Over 12 weeks the dancers have reflected on this relationship between strength and fragility, conflict and serenity, military and nature, to take our audience on a journey through the history of the wall.Visit site
