Stories of endeavour are interwoven with haunting music, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath. Out of Water takes you on a poetic journey from the land to the water’s edge.

Created by Helen Paris and Caroline Wright, Out of Water features a newly commissioned sound-score by acclaimed composer Jocelyn Pook and features a live performance from soprano Laura Wright.

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. In August 2014 the piece will be restaged for Portobello Beach in Edinburgh, as part of the Summerhall and Escalator East to Edinburgh programmes.
