Created by Helen Paris and Caroline Wright, Out of Water features a newly commissioned sound-score by acclaimed composer Jocelyn Pook and singing by young soprano Laura Wright and Oo La Lume. Stories of endeavour, of swimming, of sinking, interweave with haunting music, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath.

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.

Out of Water
debuted on Holkham Beach on 25, 26, 27 August, 2012. The performance featured Helen Paris, Caroline Wright, Laura Wright, Oo La Lume and 25 local participants from North Norfolk.
