The Coming Tide

The Coming Tide was performed on 20th March 2013 in the tidal riverbed in Deptford Creek, with permission and help from the Creekside Education Trust.

The performance was conceived, devised and performed by Ivor Houlker, Jeanelle Archer, Holly Elson, Poppy Jackson and Riham Isaacs.
