Carlisle Cathedral is delighted to be hosting a free screening of Claire Henderson Davis’ “All Creation Waits” at 1pm on Thursday 4th November 2021.
Two children worried about climate change ask St Francis and St Clare for help inspiring people to address our environmental emergency and save the planet. All Creation Waits is the story which follows, imagining a contemporary Francis and Clare, coming to terms with the need to leave their existing lives and join the movement for change. It is the story of a growing friendship between Clare, a symbol of the earth herself, wounded and desecrated, and Francis, who is first disturbed by Clare’s arrival before being ultimately transformed through their relationship.
The piece is made by Claire Henderson Davis, Fraser Paterson and Ian Bysh. The text is by Malcolm Guite with a soundtrack by Gary Lloyd. Originally a live performance, the piece had to be filmed due to the Covid pandemic.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the artists.
