Camel– choreographed and designed by Geoffrey Watson for Next Wave Festival 2016. Camel is a dance work which fuses design, text, music performance and dance into choreographic process. Drawing inspiration from the legend of the camel as an animal designed by God from the spare parts of other animals as a metaphor for the creative drive.
