This was a pilot project in the development of what we hope will become a regular programme of distinctive, fun and captivating outdoor performance that encourages people to come together to experience familiar places in unfamiliar ways. In 2019 Stepping Out featured three projects celebrating the unique nature of the Taw/Torridge Estuary and the creatures that live there.
Ebb and Flow – an interactive, creative walk exploring movement within the monumental landscape of Northam and Braunton Burrows
Oystercatchers – regular migrants from the Faroe islands, two characters arrive back to North Devon, dazed and confused and looking for fish
Creek – a multi-stranded sound project exploring and sharing the sounds and atmospheres of places along the Estuary
Stepping Out 2019 was supported with funding from Arts Council England and the North Devon Coast Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, supported through their Sustainable Development Fund, and part of their programme to mark the 60th Anniversary.
