Out of Water (2012)

Ft. Funston Beach (San Francisco, California)
Performances at dawn and dusk on June 29, 2013

In the early morning light a group of singers and swimmers strike out towards the water's edge until they span the wide expanse of beach. They each look towards the sea, eyes intent, focused on the horizon, searching for something. Is somebody lost at sea?

Created by Helen Paris and Caroline WrightOut of Water features a newly commissioned sound-score by acclaimed composer Jocelyn Pook and singing by Laura Wright and Oo La Lume. Stories of endeavour, of swimming, of sinking, interweave with haunting music, lifeguard drills, calls for help and struggles for breath.
