Watch the process of creating a new ballet in an interdisciplinary workshop with writer Marina Warner, choreographer Kim Brandstrup, pianist and composer Joanna MacGregor, and professional dancers. Rawaa comes from Arabic - the root for words meaning 'to water' and 'to relate' and provides the dominant metaphorical motif of the ballet's mood and movement.

Open to the public on Tuesday 14 November at 5.30pm to view the workshop in action and at other times by request - please email susan.jones@ell.ox.ac.uk
