Walthamstow Wetlands Residency: Dancing with Sam Barker

Sam is a young dancer who lives in Waltham Forest.  He takes classes at The Place and through his mum, he found out I was dancing on the Wetlands and sent me a video of a dance he made inspired by flying.  So I invited him and his mum to join me for an afternoon on the Wetlands where we talked about the things we saw there and how I dance with some of those things in my mind.  Sam noticed floating feathers and rigid, prickly seed heads that burst and disperse.  He saw the water levels rising and falling on the reservoirs.  He saw bees and dragonflies.  We also discussed pirates. And danced.
