In 2015, Writing on the Wall premiered ‘Estuary’, a performance featuring Liverpool based artists from a range of disciplines, based on Seán Street's poetry of tides, rivers and harbours, with musical settings by Neil Campbell and featuring vocalist Perri Alleyne-Hughes. Two years on, this collaborating team have developed a completely new interpretation of the work in collaboration with acclaimed choreographer and dancer, Rachel Sweeney, and with visual realisations by photographer/filmmaker/fine artist Peter Dover.
