Out of Water

Originally performed as part of the London 2012 Festival on Holkham Beach, Norfolk, Out of Water was devised by Helen Paris and Caroline Wright. Taking place at dawn, audience members are accompanied across the beach's beautiful expanse and lead to a group of performers by the water's edge. This piece was created using a combination of poetry by Paris and Wright with original music by Jocelyn Pook.

Ellie appeared on the soundtrack and was involved in the live performance at Holkham with Oo La Lume and soprano Laura Wright.

Out of Water is a dream-like creation combining music, words and movement on drowning, childbirth, the challenges of singing and souls lost at sea.
