For tens of thousands of years, people have ventured underground in order to experience something out of the ordinary: to take shelter, create, hide, escape... Join us as we gather for our own extraordinary expedition where the memories and secrets of Stump Cross Caverns will dance before you. Beneath Our Feet is a promenade performance that will use dance and live music to tell the story of the underground. Your guide, musician Lou Vilstrup, will draw you into an unknown world, where the memories and secrets of each underground space will dance before you. This is the most recent work by award-winning dance company Made By Katie Green, who specialise in making dance performance work for museums and heritage sites. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, there are three chances to see this extraordinary performance each evening.
