Tied, a performance for the Thames


Photo by Joe MellenTied explores interdependencies, connections, negotiations; between women and the elements, each other and their work.  Six women, dressed in the mixed, muted colours of their environment, take their position on the banks of the River Thames at low tide. Mindful of the rising waterline, they pursue their task with intense concentration.  Collaboratively, co-operatively, and bringing their own individual style to the task, they honour traditional methods to create a sea-green fishing net; which gradually widens as they weave, simultaneously entwining their stories into the fabric of the web.
