Out Of Water | Caroline Wright & Helen Paris


Portobello Beach, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
Portobello Beach

The singers are out of breath.
The swimmers are out of their depth.

At sunrise and sunset, for three days only, a captivating spectacle will emerge on Edinburgh’s beach. Singers and swimmers strike out towards the water’s edge looking out intently, searching the horizon. Is somebody lost at sea?

Wearing headsets that transmit a heart-stirring soundscore by BAFTA-winning composer Jocelyn Pook, audiences are gently tugged towards the shore where the sight of toiling singers and swimmers unfolds before them. Featuring a live performance from chart-topping soprano Laura Wright and forty local Portobello residents, Out of Water reveals stories of endeavor, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath. It promises to be an astonishing moment within some of Edinburgh’s most stunning scenery.

Out of Water is part of Escalator East to Edinburgh and Summerhall programmes.
