On The Edge of a Rising Tide

On The Edge of a Rising Tide

On The Edge of a Rising Tide at Horse Shoe Corner, 4 — 5 November 2016 Entrance is free

A skeletal crew will take over the streets of Lancaster during Light Up Lancaster… Riding on BoomBikes and carrying a digital projector, this unearthly gang will project spectral images of humans, fish and marine organisms onto doorways, windows and rooftops. Accompanied by the ‘medieval hip hop’ of BoomBike Bouree and the sounds of the sea, submerged bells, foghorns and warped shanties, the motley parade will tell the story of a city where the local’s livelihood has been dependent on the Lune estuary and sea. Though whether the images tell of the past, or the future, remains to be seen.

Friday starting point: Horse Shoe Corner. Starting times: 5.30pm / 6.45pm / 8pm

Saturday starting point: St George’s Quay. Starting time: 7pm

On The Edge of a Rising Tide at Horse Shoe Corner, 4 — 5 November 2016 Entrance is free
