About the event
we are water, we are all waters
I meet you here...our drips will always find each other, waves outstretched to meet you, swelling around you like a morning tide, holding you up...
Created by Ray Young, BODIES is a sound and performance installation that will take place in swimming pools across the UK, inviting audiences into the pool for an active, sensory experience of water, discovery & rest. Commissioned by Unlimited, this immersive water, light and soundscape environment investigates the embodied experiences of our relationships with water.
A sister piece to their at-home performance experience THIRST TRAP, BODIES will continue Young’s investigation into water as a key character in our collective conversations on climate justice.
'They said with wonder and admiration, you are still alive, like hydrogen, like oxygen.' Dionne Brand, An Ars Poetica from The Blue Clerk.
BODIES has been created in collaboration with, Gail Babb, Nandi Bhebe, Season Butler, Naomi Kuyck-Cohen, Nao Nagai & Nicole Raymond aka NikNak
