PERSECUTED & FORGOTTEN
CREATIVES AND CREDITS
Choreographer: Eliot Smith
Music: Variations for Vibes, Pianos and Strings: Fast I
Composer: Steve Reich, Performed by Steve Reich Ensemble
Costume: Eliot Smith
Premiered on 19 May 2012 at Westminster Cathedral Piazza.
Funded by Aid To The Church In Need and Friends of The Company
In 2012, Eliot was commissioned to create a new work dedicated to Aid To The Church In Need (ACNUK).
After reading the book, Persecuted and Forgotten? Eliot became very still and infused with pain and was shocked that to this day you can still be persecuted for having a faith. This dance work is an offering, a token of courage, for those who are being persecuted and forgotten around the world.
The work was selected by the Director of The London Contemporary Dance School to be performed across the UK with LC3 as part of their 2012 tour.
