Look at life again soon

On Thursday 11 September, ten young makers ceremoniously named a small raft Detritus II. The following morning they carried this raft from their resident Eel Pie Island until The North Sea was in sight. Over two tidal cycles they travelled and followed the Thames between these points by boat, train and foot, using a series of symbolic flags (burgees) to chart their journey as inspired by the traditions of Yacht Clubs. On arrival they launched the Detritus II. The performance then continued on the terms of the tide. 

The performance began with 'The Naming Ceremony', inspired by the Yacht Club's rituals. The text from which can be read here.
