Shorelines

Shorelines

Inspired by the North Sea Flood of 1953—which left the Netherlands devastated and also took many lives in the UK and Belgium— Shorelines is a music-theatre work, composed by Oliver Coates, performed by the Ragazze Quartet and directed by Josh Armstrong. Acting as both a memorial to those who lost their lives and a meditation on water, this performance centres on the taped testimony of a woman who lost everything to the sea.

Following the moments after the flood, the performers drift through a dramatic musical landscape of flowing and shifting textures, combined with design and staging. As the members of the quartet perform against haunting recordings of themselves and collages of slowed strings and choral voices, we hear the sounds that were never heard, the calls that were unanswered and see shadows floating through the darkness.

Shorelines is a poignant reflection on the increasingly delicate relationship we have with the natural world.
