Alan Lane: 'Flood has explosions, tidal waves and a floating city'

We speak to Slung Low’s artistic director about one of their most ambitious projects to date

On our recent trip to Hull, we talked to with Slung Low's artistic director Alan Lane to find out more about their year-long project Flood.

Part of Hull UK City of Culture, Flood takes place in four parts. The first part, a short film called From the Sea, has been released online and can be seen as a prologue here.

Part two will be called Abundance and will be a live performance which takes place on Victoria Dock in Hull between 11 and 15 April and features the approaching apocalypse.

The third part – To the Sea – is set in the aftermath of an England engulfed by water and will be aired by BBC in the summer. The final part of FloodA New World – will be another live performance on Victoria Dock in October and looks at how the world is pieced back together.

The piece is written by James Phillips and directed by Lane.
