Moving with the Trouble is an award winning dance film that addresses themes of dispossession, loss, vulnerability, othering and care that chime with the global pandemic.

Developed from the legacy of I’ve Lost You Only To Discover That I Have Gone Missing  and the testimonies of people affected by young onset dementia, this new dance film — supported by Surrey Arts and Dance 21 — confronts our dispossessions. It explores how we touch the alterity within, the dark matter, and invites audiences to move with us as we move with the trouble. Filmed on location at the Chilworth Gunpowder Mills deep in the Surrey Hills at the end of the third UK National lockdown, the film, and the feminist research that informs it, is a site-responsive work that grasps the social, political, and environmental inequalities of loss, voice, intimacy, vulnerability, destruction and care. In doing so, Moving with the Trouble tunes our attention to micro-activisms present in movement exchange as we show up to collective understandings of the re-territorialization of power and privilege in more-than-human ways. The film is been screened in dance/arts, public health and environmental justice forums. It is currently touring international film festivals and is available for remote and on-site screening.
