Opera, physical theatre and carnival collide in this brand new production that tells the story of London and the ebb and flow of its people through five found objects from the River Thames and from the Museum of London Docklands.
Liquid History sees the river brought to life through song and movement, telling these object’s stories through a mixture of opera, physical theatre and carnival.
The Thames, which is now often forgotten or seen as a leisure attraction, was once our gateway to the entire world and gave us opportunity and life. It is Liquid History. It was the making of the city and many of its secrets lie in fragments on river bed, waiting to be discovered.
