“It’s an experience that mixes the putrid and the poetic, and manages, by bringing the participant face to face with death, to be wonderfully life-affirming.” – Hannah Reich, ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Take a boat ride down the River Aire, and listen to the story of your body’s afterlife and process of decay in water—dissolving and disintegrating, as it is borne from a canal, through a widening river and out to sea.

Waterborne is shown as part of Compass Festival 2018, a biennial of interactive art projects taking place in Leeds, UK.

Sailings on Saturday 24 – Sunday 25 November, 12-8pm on the hour, every hour.

Tickets are free, but must be booked through Eventbrite.

A quayside version of Waterborne will be available anytime 12pm-8pm with no need to book in advance.

This is the third time we have mounted Waterborne in 2018, having presented it at Dark Mofo in Hobart, Australia, and the exhibition River Separates Water in Pittsburgh, USA.

You can find details on the piece and the full programme here.

Tickets: Free, but must be booked.

Dates: 24–25 November 2018.

Venue: Leeds Dock
