A Seaside Spectacle
This is not a theatre anymore. This will always be a theatre.
Back by popular demand following last summer’s sell-out shows, Sea Breeze is a poetic and spectacular site-specific performance inspired by and presented in Morecambe’s iconic Winter Gardens theatre. Sea Breeze draws on extensive research in the building, and the gathered stories and recollections of those who once worked there, from the ticket and ice-cream sellers to the one who locked the doors after the very last show in the seventies, after which the theatre became dark…
Featuring specially composed and arranged music, a choir of local singers, and stunningly beautiful architectural projection, Sea Breeze breathes life into the forgotten corners of the building, stirring up dust and dreams, exploring memory, decay, and what it means to survive.
Sea Breeze is created by Raisin & Willow, makers of heartfelt and thoughtful site-responsive performance, in collaboration with imitating the dog, “a company at the forefront of testing the nature of theatre” (The Guardian).
Sea Breeze is produced by Live at LICA, and is supported by Arts Council England, Lancashire County Council, Lancaster University, Live at LICA and The Creative Exchange.
