In 1984, two Clydesdale horses jumped the gate of their field and charged down to the beach at Billia Croo on Orkney. Standing up on their hind hooves they danced in the low mid-summer sun. Using this striking image as inspiration, the rituals of horse, land and sea inspire the visual poetry of Sea Hames, its choreography responding to the power and permanence of Scotland's natural heritage and folkloric identity.

Sea Hames is a celebration of Orkney's Festival of the House, ancient traditions of ploughing contests and arcane rural ritual. This innovative multi-disciplinary performance fuses eclectic sonic composition, compelling performance and intricate costume to explore the mythology and iconography of the equine traditions of Scotland. Nominated for a Critics Award For Theatre In Scotland 2018: Best Music and Sound.

Supported by Creative Scotland Touring Fund for Theatre and Dance.

Oceanallover are a visual theatre performance company based in South West Scotland led by Artistic Director Alex Rigg. They make outdoor performance for site-specific locations and perform in both urban and remote landscapes. Their work is visually arresting and philosophically stimulating making use of original and innovative costume design, gripping theatricality and evocative music to create emotional and memorable performance events. The company put particular emphasis on live music and visceral dance theatre with a design process that borrows from anthropology, carnival and high fashion.
