Produced And Commissioned By Bleach* Festival. Supported By City Of Gold Coast And Connecting Southern Gold Coast.

Based on the wildly successful work from 2015, Tide sees two performers risk it all to remind us all that we are nothing without each other.

Two office workers carry on their duties in an office built on a sandbar. During low tide, they stand safely on sand, but as the tide rises, water submerges the desk and its contents. For 49 hours, without food or supplies, these two fearless performers put themselves at the mercy of both the tide and the compassion of the community.

Complete with shareholder presentations, office parties and water cooler discussions, this post-apocalyptic scene is an installation, an interactive theatre work, a dance performance and a test of endurance fuelled by two people’s unwavering belief in the human spirit.
