Event description
Solstice Shorts 2019: live stories, poems & songs of making a living on/beside water, and making new lives over the water

About this Event

Performed live by actors: historically tinged stories, poems and songs ...

How do tides affect our lives? How has that changed through history?

Making a living on or by the sea – fishermen and pirates, wreckers and dockers – making a new life across the sea – escaping pograms and wars, and the endlessly travelling – to paddlers and wild swimmers... and suffragettes.

Our actors will be joined by the London Sea Shanty Collective and folk musician Kevan Taplin

This is the Greenwich part of a larger event: We will be performing in seven port towns on coasts and on tidal rivers, in four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Portugal.
