Norwich Under the Water


New Norwich company Vatic Theatre present a compelling blend of movement and music, created for, and performed in, the atmospheric cloisters of Norwich Cathedral.

A two metre rise in water levels would see the river Wensum at the base of Norwich Cathedral. What do we do with such facts? How are they relevant to our lives? Are they anxiety inducing, or can they be hopeful rallying-cries?

These are the questions that Vatic Theatre explored with communities across Norwich and with climate scientists. Their voices inspired a physical score devised by the company; a story told through mood and movement, and an original composition by award-winning composer Bill Vine.
