UNDERSCORED WITH LIVE FOLK MUSIC, BARE SKIN ON BRINY WATERS TELLS THE STORY OF ANNIE AND SOPHIE, TWO YOUNG WOMEN WHOSE LIVES LEAD THEM TO THE EDGE.

Annie finds herself on a clifftop. She says she’s fine but she can’t quite get her story straight. Sat by her side, Sophie covers the bruises on her neck. She thinks everything might just be alright, because it’s amazing what you get used to, isn’t it? Underscored with live folk music, Bare Skin on Briny Waters is a story about survival and escape. It’s about two young women standing on a cliff edge, steadily being blown on an unexpected course.

‘GENTLY POETIC AND SALT-TINGED STORYTELLING’ LYN GARDNER

‘THE DRAMATIC EQUIVALENT OF A LAURA MARLING SONG:  SAD, SENSITIVE, SOULFUL AND STIRRING.  A HOWL OF RAGE, WHISPERED INTO THE WIND FROM A CLIFFTOP.’  **** THE STAGE

Bare Skin On Briny Waters was a hit at Edinburgh fringe, where it was part of the Hull City of Culture TakeOver and earned two award commendations from NSDF for Writing and Acting.

Designed by Naomi Kuyck-Cohen (In My Dreams I Dream I’m Dreaming, Majesty) with Lighting Design from Will Monks (The Bare Project Bardo, Lung Chilcot).
