Belly of the Whale 

Country of Origin: 

Saturday 13 June / 2 performances / TBA

Sunday 14 June / 2 performances / TBA


The performers, like surfers on a wild sea, ride a giant semi-circular see-saw made of wood and steel which creaks and groans as it transforms from a catapult, a gently rocking cradle, a tunnel, a slide - creating an ever-changing land and soundscape. 

The concept of the belly of the whale is found in mythology around the world - what happens when we confront our fears and come face to face with the power and momentum of things we seemingly can’t change? 

Belly of the Whale is commissioned by Without Walls, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Out There International Festival of Circus & Street Arts, Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Lift Off! - Salisbury, Circulate & Basingstoke Festival.
