In the




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 in four parts from Luke Pell and collaborators. A dance and a poem made from from memory and conversation. 

Throughout May and June 2017 a series of conversations and encounters with different people in Leith and Edinburgh led to a week of live dance performances in unique spaces across the city, opening as part of LeithLate17 in the Leith Theatre, accompanied by a series of specially commissioned podcasts and traced in print with a limited run publication, now also available online.

We are currently looking to make new site responsive re-iterations of the Ink Dark in other places in Scotland for the Summer of 2019.
