When You Light A Candle You Also Cast A Shadow is an award-nominated dance and live music performance by Company Carpi. Created by choreographer Bettina Carpi and composer Gary Lloyd, with a specially commissioned poetry cycle by Costa Award winner Mary Talbot, the piece is a celebration of nature and its resilience and a call to awareness of the dangerous state of our climate, our habitat, and our planet.
When You Light A Candle... is performed by a trio of dancers – Paige Lyon, Daisy Belle Howell & Lauren Tucker – with music performed live by ‘The Candle String Quintet’ featuring musicians drawn from the best orchestras in the North West.
