Designing a Slung Low show is never a simple creative challenge. Flood particularly so, as this was to be a 4-part epic, performed over a year.

Part 1 was a short film shot in the North Sea; Part 2 a large scale open-air live show performed on water; Part 3 a piece of theatre filmed for television; and Part 4 a concluding large scale open-air on water live show. Each show has its own community performance company of 100.

This was the second show I have designed on/in water, which comes with its unique challenges though this was at a much larger scale. The ambition of the shows are only possible because the creative team, crew and cast operate as a creative gang, everyone pitches in on all duties and it is a much richer creative experience as a result.
