FREE LIVE PERFORMANCE, MUSIC AND COSTUME
INSPIRED BY ORKNEY’S FESTIVAL OF THE HORSE AND BOYS’ PLOUGHING MATCH

Sea Hames is the latest outdoor performance project from leading site specific theatre company Oceanallover. Inspired by ‘The Festival of the Horse and Boys’ Ploughing Match’ this multi-disciplinary performance fuses sonic composition, compelling performance and intricate costume to explore the mythology and iconography of horse, plough and the sea.

In 1984 two Clydesdale horses jumped the gate to their field and charged down to the beach at Billia Croo on Orkney. They stood up on their hind hooves and danced in the low mid-summer sun. This project begins with those two horses and the sea; about freedom and creativity, the persistence of memory, tradition and innovation, attention to detail and wild brush-strokes.

As these are outdoor performances audience members are advised to dress for the weather.

Part of Stromness’ 200 years Per Mare celebrations, sponsored by Stromness Community Council
