'Shoreline begins, an arms-wide-open yet stunningly intimate performance...It seems impossible to witness this experience and not be moved.'  
Philly Byrde
Hall For Cornwall Review


Whether we live by the sea or just visit, we are all connected to it, often without knowing why. Perhaps it’s our fascination with the sea’s power, or maybe it’s a desire for some kind of healing or escape that draws us to the coast.

Shoreline is a work that explores our mysterious connection to the sea. It is amphibious – danced on the sand and in the water to live choral music. It is a metaphor for the storms we all endure, the moments of tranquility we seek and the borders and boundaries we fear or dare to cross.

We are touring Shoreline in Cornwall again this year as part of
a pinch of SALT dance festival!

You are welcome to join the choir and dancers perform the SHORELINE finale. The simple gesture phrase is performed looking out to sea. Here is a short video of Emily demonstrating the movements, and to make it easier to learn, the phrase is shown firstly with Emily facing the camera and then facing away.
