“Out Of Water” for Ed Fringe 2014

I joined the cast of “Out Of Water”, a site specific performance art piece by Helen Paris and Caroline Wright brought to Edinburgh’s Festival Fringe in 2014 by Escalator East

 

“The singers are out of breath. The swimmers are out of their depth. At sunrise and sunset, for three days only, a captivating spectacle will emerge on Edinburgh’s beach. Singers and swimmers strike out towards the water’s edge looking out intently, searching the horizon. Is somebody lost at sea? Stories of endeavour are interwoven with haunting music, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath. Featuring a score from award-winning composer Jocelyn Pook and acclaimed soprano Laura Wright, Out of Water takes you on a poetic journey from land to the water’s edge.”
