Out of Water at Holkham Beach
The singers are out of breath
The swimmers are out of their depth
At Holkham Beach in Norfolk the sea glistens mirage-like in the distance. In the early morning light a group of singers and swimmers strike out towards the water's edge until they span the wide expanse of beach. They each look towards the sea, eyes intent, focused on the horizon, searching for something. Is somebody lost at sea?
Created by Helen Paris and Caroline Wright, Out of Water features a newly commissioned sound-score by acclaimed composer Jocelyn Pook. Laura Wright and Oo La Lume will also perform. Stories of endeavor, of swimming, of sinking, of living interweave with haunting music, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath.
The audience are guided towards the water's edge and as the day breaks, stories unfold.
Out of Water is a Live Art Collective East project for the London 2012 Festival supported by Arts Council England, PRS For Music Foundation's Women Make Music Scheme and Norfolk County Council.
