metta dance theatreLeyla silks Well

Leyla had the pleasure of working with Metta Theatre for some research and development of their new piece “Well” exploring the personal and global impact of well-meaning international intervention. Well is based on actual events in Bangladesh, where the drilling of tube wells in the 1970s to resolve the endemic Cholera problem accidentally created arsenic poisoning on an epic scale.

Leyla worked alongside Lindsay Butcher http://www.gravity-levity.net and choreographer Shreya Kumar in exploring this issue through dance, silks and hoop under the Direction of Poppy Burton- Morgan and William Reynolds http://www.mettatheatre.co.uk
