The Mariners Journey


   The Mariners Journey  

Burdened by an extraordinary enormous albatross wing and the relentless desire for redemption, The Mariners Journey combines ritual, a journey between two extraordinary church buildings and aerial performances at Holy Trinity church.

The Ancient Mariner, wearing an extraordinary “narrative” coat, journeys through the urban landscape of Leeds.  Through the incessant need to illustrate the heinous act of killing the albatross, this highly visual & physical performance re-interprets the original text as a crime against nature and the environment.

The aerial performances at Holy Trinity take place within thematically linked art work, “Making Waves” curated by arts@trinity and The Den Project, www.holytrinityleeds.co.uk
