I was pleased (and nervous) to present the first draft my new piece, The Violent Justice in Our Hearts, in the Hull Truck rehearsal room on Wednesday. I got some lovely and helpful feedback from the game and sympathetic crew that came to watch. Very much looking forward to presenting the finished item at the Grow Festival in June. Slightly panicking about having to learn 6000 words – even if I did write them.

Video and photos from The History of Water. I wasn’t able to film the whole thing due to time constraints, and because the real point of the performance was to be in the water.
The water and light have created some ace effects.
Somehow the girls in the audience arranged themselves like Matisse’s dancers.
Nadia Morgan tells a story about her early memories of swimming. The lighting is looking lovely.
The Arts Council and Hull City Council have kindly funded my upcoming project: The History of Water.
It’s an immersive theatre performance inviting audiences for a swim in two of Hull’s historic pools. Beverley Road Baths and East Hull Pools will be transformed through light, sound, music and stories as participants merrily float and splash their way through the show.
I will be performing with Joseph Kloska. Live music and sound design will be provided by Nadia Morgan. Lighting design is by Tim Skelly. The show is about how precious swimming pools are as public spaces. It is a celebration of pools as spaces for reflection, exercise, socialising and fun, but also a reminder of the importance of our public buildings.
Tickets are £10. Come have a swim!
5-6 October, Beverley Road Baths
12-13 October, East Hull Pools
