Patois explores what happens when two unwritten languages meet: the spoken language of patois (French Creole) and the movement language of dance.

British-Caribbean choreographer Jeanefer Jean-Charles MBE tells a story of lost languages, longing and belonging through traditional Caribbean choreography, contemporary dance and an original music score.

Join us on a journey to rediscover hidden voices and identities that are rooted in dialects that are buried within us as we reawaken stories and generations of the past.

Patois is supported by Without Walls and commissioned by FESTIVAL.ORG for Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and Brighton Festival.
