Whether you live by it or make special trips to it we are all, deep down, connected to the sea, often without ever knowing why. Perhaps it is about being human, about our vulnerability against such changeable yet awe-inspiring environments or a desire for healing, transcendence and escape.
Shoreline is a dance performance like no other, exploring our mysterious connection to the sea. It is amphibious, danced in the water, as well as on the sand and rocks, to live choral music. It is a metaphor for the storms we all endure, the moments of tranquility we seek and the borders and boundaries we fear or dare to cross.
Shoreline is an ode to the coastline, and all that it means to us.
Shoreline premiered as part of SALT landscape/dance festival 2016, with performances at Watergate Bay, Sennen Cove and Kynance Cove. Shoreline was created in partnership with Dance Republic 2, Falmouth University and the National Trust and is supported by FEAST Cornwall and Arts Council England.
