This show was produced as part of a residency for the Manchester Festival. It was performed alongside Long Overdue. A site-specific show, created especially for Upper Campfield Market, Manchester. IOU imported 48 tons of sand and 5,000 gallons of water to convert the vast and empty Victorian market hall into a beach, quay and seascape. The story of Noah and the Flood is woven together with images of life in a revolving tower and the discovery of a body in the water.
