".. laced with beauty, humour and almost elemental pathos. A voyage to discover."

NIE embarked on a transatlantic voyage on board the GMA-CGM Fort St Louis, a container ship en route from Le Havre in France to Guadeloupe in the West Indies.

NIE embarked on a transatlantic voyage on board the GMA-CGM Fort St Louis, a container ship en route from Le Havre in France to Guadeloupe in the West Indies. They were rocked by a North Atlantic storm, delayed by French dock strikes, woken in the night by the smell of the land and warmed by the Caribbean sun. The experiences on the boat formed the genesis of this show.

With the help of Icelandic novelist, poet and Bjork lyricist, their experiences on the voyage are delicately intertwined with seafaring tales and shanties from around the world. Winner of ‘Best Show’ at the Tiba Festival in Belgrade, Tales from a Sea Journey explores the pull and power of the sea from the world’s saltiest stage.
