From the heart of the sea is a devised live performance that explores the concept of land through the physical and emotional connection with home.
We invite the audience into a playful experience of touching sea stories through materials.
At the show we are looking for partners to swim with us in the sea.
It's scary, sometimes wild and deep and we don't know how to paddle.
We can share how we learn to swim
and who choose where the border will pass
and in which country we are now.
We invite you to a space where touching, laughing and crying is allowed.
A moment to look back at where we came from, and where we are now.
We will change houses but take with us the ground.
No more playing alone, because soon you will come
and my sandcastle will become your grave
and your grave will become my garden.
The Kabobot fight will land everywhere and
the brooms will clean what they can, but our pieces
will hide at the corners, deep in the heart of the sea.
So let's build a home together just for a second.
To feel comfortable on the sofa and tell each other about a bad dream
or sing a happy song when we are sad.
We will keep telling the stories that play here with building and destroying, mum and dad, salt and water
The survivors of the sea and the ones that are swallowed by it.

‘This work was a true revelation, the artist creating a simple/complex, funny/sombre, and tragic/ecstatic - emotional rollercoaster by the sea. It magically transposed sand castles and crabs on the beach with the occupied territories and bulldozers raising homes to dust on desert shores - with just hand gestures and spartan language.’ – David Crawforth, sound artist and founder Beaconsfield Gallery https://beaconsfield.ltd.uk
‘What a finely-tuned, complete piece of work which had twists and turns and always surprised. It felt very nuanced and could be read in so many different ways, and be applied to many different contexts. The Beckett-inspired opening which turned into a kind of neighbour-wars and then political border control was neatly played. The audience understood these well-formed characters in just a few, brief moments. Excellent. A real joy to watch: funny, profound and moving.’ – Caroline Smith, performance maker and writer http://www.carolinesmithonline.com/
