Bede Williams (Performer)

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Over Lunan was an extraordinary sound and visual promenade performance in the dunes of Lunan Bay in Angus, Scotland, and an accompanying radio play.

The major live commission blended a monumental sound and light installation with elements of theatre. As darkness fell, audience members became immersed in one of Scotland's most stunning coastal locations in an unusual work that drew on the fragility of the natural world and ancient flood mythologies…
