Daisy Farris Dance Collective presents: THE GREAT THAMES DISASTER
A glorious day trip ends in tragedy. The story of The Great Thames Disaster unfolds through dance and physical theatre as the audience is taken on the final voyage of The SS Princess Alice in 1878.
The fate of the passengers is revealed in this bold, immersive production, capturing the moment the jovial atmosphere descends into chaos. An emotive tale of disaster, tragedy and the power of community spirit, guaranteed to capture the hearts and minds of audiences.
An immersive, site-specic performance on board LV21. Audiences will board the ship and be guided through the decks and cabins as this historical story unfolds. Performances will be followed by a movement workshop with Daisy Farris and an art installation by Nicola Flower in the hull of the ship.
