Working alongside director Connie Treves, who adapted the novel The Enchanted by Rene Denfield into a script. Using the poetic language to influence movement we devised a physical adaptation of the hard hitting narrative told from the real life experiences of the authors past as female death row investigator in Oregon.
Gaining research from meeting with death row lawyers, child protection paediatrician and artists that work in prisons, the opportunity to tell this story in theatres for the first time and challenging the perimeters of movement expression whilst doing so was an influential experience for me.
"The movement is intriguing with the heightened poetic language. It really proves that Pharmacy Theatre is a visually thrilling company on the rise" - A YoungTheatre
“The production is heavily based in movement work, skilfully choreographed by Emily Orme, echoing the thrilling style of Owen Sheers’ Pink Mist" - A YoungTheatre
“It is revealed in the absorbing cast movements that hail our senses as loudly as the words" -The Reviews Hub ****
