At Sea

Is our new work in progress. We create high-quality, physical theatre that resonates emotionally with and entertains a broad audience. ‘At Sea’ is a fast paced, poetic and humorous performance that follows a woman through the absurdities of life’s daily rituals in the family and the place of work. It explores our longing within motherhood for freedom and the wild. It raises the question of what we do with its emotional complexities; what we desire and what we keep hidden away. As a starting point, we took the tale of the Selkie, (a mythical half human-half seal) who loses her seal skin and as a result cannot return to the sea. Taken in by a fisherman, her need to return to the wild is inescapable.

The creative process will involve working with artistic mentor, Nancy Rusek (Choreographer for La Compagnie Philippe Genty), who will help develop our shared physical vocabulary, dramaturgy, use of puppetry, challenge and provoke us in our artistic ambition.
