The Trees Dance (WIP)
THE TREES DANCE follows climber, botanist and poet Libby Houston who, at 80 years-old, continues her work climbing throughout the Avon Gorge to investigate rare plants. Having reached every ledge on every rock face, Libby has helped establish the area as one of England’s most important botanical sites. But as it stands, there is only one known member of her namesake discovery - Houston’s Whitebeam - and reflecting on its inevitable extinction prompts Libby to contemplate her own legacy.
