The Breath Festival presents a wealth of displays, performances, tours, talks, events and childern’s activities around breath and breathing which will take place across the University museums in Oxford.  Its facinating programme includes a welcome opportunity to see work by a much respected dance artist resident in Oxfordshire.  The Pneûma Project is a collaboration between visual artist David Ward, musician Sylvia Hallett and movement artist Miranda Tufnell that explores breath in all its aspects.  For the Breath Festival they will share a section from their full length work Pneûma (Greek for wind, breath, spirit, that which is blown or breathed).  Pneûma will create a dialogue between two dancers and two musicians and the stunning display of mammal skeletons that has such a dramatic presence in the museum.  The performance in movement and sound will evoke aspects and stories of breath, amongst the epic procession of mammals, themselves once living, breathing creatures.

Performance:  Saturday 1st November 2014, 4.15-4.45pm

The Great Hall, Museum of Natural History, Parks Rd, Oxford OX1 3PW
