A performance project exploring and inspired by the coastal habitat, Where Seaweed Dances brings a mélange of live music, acrobatic movement and theatre. During this residency we will be collecting further local knowledge of the coast, studying the movements and sounds of people, animals, seaweeds, that live where land meets the sea. The sea inspires the tale; as it has for generations, through mythology and music known by both Irish and Greek traditions of storytelling.
