I Wish Her Well is an intricate performance, combining storytelling, high tempo energy and an evocative sound score by British composer Nathaniel Reed that infuses the performance with melody and atmosphere. It is a captivating production that seeks to move and engage. Act one is based on the stories of four women who are closely related to the dancers, whilst act two is based on the diaries of a 16 year-old girl. She is now an 85 year-old woman who generously shared her thoughts and experiences with the choreographers and dancers. The production period took place in Norway, Sweden and Tanzania, culminating in a premiere performance for CODA Oslo International Dance Festival’s 10th anniversary at the Dance House, Oslo, in 2012. The performance has continued on tour in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, England, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. Four women, a collection of stories, a handful of hourglasses and a huge mirror. I Wish Her Well tells simple stories of everyday events that are universally meaningful, but nonetheless remain invisible when official history is written.

“Strong, physical, fast, beautiful, precise storytelling, thought-provoking and very beautiful.”
