'Coleridge Unbound' is a powerful and moving project for dance film and site-specific public outdoor performance, focusing on Coleridge’s stance against slavery and his role as an abolitionist in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century.

The project includes five commissions for new site-specific dance, and features dance films by renowned UK choreographers Michael Joseph, Keisha Grant, Deborah Baddoo, Bawren Tavaziva and Kay Crook. 'Coleridge Unbound’ develops partnerships with Somerset Film, the Museum of Somerset and local community groups.
