Submerged worlds in a flooded Peterborough

Future Floodlands is a collaboration between artist and boatbuilder James Tovey, Eastern Angles and Peterborough Environment City Trust.

This compelling installation will be part of the Green Festival on the 13th of August and Future Floodlands will be an imagined world situated within Peterborough Cathedral grounds. Enter a space of fenland landscapes, more water than land, submerged worlds and interact with this unique space that will ask what a flooded world may be like?

Not only can you become part of Future Floodlands through out the day through interacting with the space. You will also be able to experience 6 pieces of new writing, that too try to answer, provoke reactions about or engage with the same question.

Each play is 10-15mins long and there will be two performances of these on  13th August 2016 at 11:30am-12:45pm and then at 3:45pm-5:30pm.

Running order for the performances:

Somewhere Else by William Alderson
Beside The Seaside by Liv Jones
In The Wake Of The Flood by Elaine Ewart
Spilling Convention by Clare Currie
Losing It by Vikki Touzel
On Such A Full Sea by Hilary Spiers

All performances are FREE.

Please be aware that these performances will be outside, so please bring a blanket, an extra cushion and even a picnic!
