Grief Floats is an honouring and witnessing of all that we have to grieve, living in this moment together.
The work asks us to not look away, to not ignore the human rights violations taking place daily, to not ignore the destruction of our planet, to not forget the names of those we have lost.
Instead it offers a moment to remember them, to remember our ancestral ways of healing through being with the ocean, through moving and being together.
Set in the North Sea, Grief Floats will be Company of Others’ first outdoor work premiering Summer 2021.
