Tales from a Sea Journey
In November 2009, eight performers from NIE embarked on a transatlantic voyage aboard a cargo ship from Le Havre in France to the exotic Island of Guadaloupe in the West Indies. They were rocked by a North Atlantic storm, delayed by French dock strikes, woken in the night by the smell of the land and warmed by the Caribbean sun. Working with Icelandic novelist and poet 'Sjon' (lyricist for many of Bjork's best known tunes) they discovered stories, myths, songs and shanties from the sea and letters from home. Using NIE's trademark mix of storytelling, physical theatre, live music, multiple languages and a European ensemble; the show explores the pull and power of the sea, from both a very epic and very personal perspective.
