Walking the Tide

A large scale participatory site specific performance event.

140 people marked the causeway from Kippford to Rough Island at low tide, linking land to island.

I loved the visual impact but as a participant it also went much deeper than that. The different moods/feelings at every stage were quite profound: the happy party atmosphere walking through the village (the band were brilliant), the quiet contemplation as you crossed between the mainland and the island and the coming together of the group as we all sang together at the top of rough island expertly lead by Ali Burns. AMAZING!

It brought people together in a united celebration of the environment. A wonderful way to see and appreciate the landscape. Visually stunning from afar. Thank you for the experience

I loved being with so many people of all ages. A living red line across the landscape, singing together with a large group looking out to sea, the physical, spiritual experience; something to take away with you
