Funders and Supporters:


The research for this piece was funded by a Jerwood Award and supported by LABAN.

A Dance Theatre Quintet in the Wake of a Sinking Myth.

Beyond the Seven Seas is inspired by the Greek myth of the sirens and the strange suspension of life beneath and above the fluid surface.

The work evolved out of von Stockert’s research project Audiocaptive, which was linked to the Jerwood Award she received in 2002.

Beyond the Seven Seas toured as part of a double bill alongside von Stockert’s work Nightmares in Black & Green.
