The Noise My Leaves Make

The Noise my Leaves Make is a contemporary dance film that explores Black womanhood and the rural environment in England.

The film follows three dark-skinned Black women as they utilise their Africanist and Contemporary dance vocabulary to engage with the Leicestershire environment. As Black British women, this space has typically been denied to them as a place of belonging. Through their movement, these three women claim the countryside as their own finding sisterhood, connection, and joy.
