Dreamt as a living poem,

it is a wander along the water,

a seat beside someone on a bench,

a conversation, a landscape of words

written with bodies, a space for you to reflect,  

remember, imagine, in honour of things

loved and lost 

In the Ink Dark is a project from Luke Pell and collaborators.

A dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation.


Throughout April and May a series of conversations and encounters with different

people in Glasgow and Dundee will lead to two weeks of live dance performances in

unique spaces in each city.

In the Ink Dark  was first made for Edinburgh opening as part of LeithLate17 in the Leith Theatre and went on to be performed in libraries throughout the city, culminating with a final performance for midsummer at The Scottish Poetry Library.


New site responsive re-iterations are made this year for Take Me Somewhere and Luminate Festivals 2019.
