FLOOD utilises Theatre Témoin’s signature style of movement, comedy and acrobatics to explore beautiful and metaphorical conversations with the sea.
It’s 2030, the world’s oceans have become volatile, dangerous and unable to sustain life. 3 strangers meet on the high seas. A storm is coming.
FLOOD is a new, interactive outdoor spectacle, highlighting the health of the world’s ocean through the eyes of Britain’s coastal communities. Utilising circus, music and acrobatics, FLOOD takes you on an epic adventure to understand how our coastline and communities have become ‘seasick’.
Standing under your own personalized sound umbrella, FLOOD will take you far beyond your front door and into the eye of the storm. FLOOD brings climate and Covid recovery into conversation through socially engaged practice. Through workshops, interviews and original sound design, Theatre Témoin have worked alongside coastal communities to explore their unique challenges and the future of our oceans in a post-Covid world. FLOOD is ready for wet weather, are you?
