Longways/Crosswise is an immersive, outdoor site-specific dance performance taking place on the coastline of Morecambe Bay. Inspired by David Cox's provocative paintings of the crossings, join a cast of professional dancers and local participants as we imagine the stories and tales of those that once crossed the sands in the last of the light. Commencing an hour before sunset, together the audience and performers will witness the phenomenal transformation of the Bay at day’s end.

Through the intrinsic choreography of this 1-hour performance, the many movement patterns of the bay are described in the bodies of the dancers as they trace the folds of the sand and the flow of the tide, dancing the ridges and ripples of the Bay’s unique, ever-changing landscape. Between water and land, between day and night, between those that once walked the sands and those that still do, Longways/Crosswise creates a tangible, lived encounter with the shifting, sifting world of Morecambe Bay.

This is a brand new commission by About Time Dance Company, for Morecambe Bay Partnership. The work is co-choreographed by Jenny Reeves and Ellen Jeffrey.
