Longways/Crosswise is an immersive, outdoor site-specific dance performance co-choreographed by Ellen Jeffrey and Jenny Reeves for About Time Dance company.

Taking place on the coastline of Morecambe Bay and inspired by David Cox's provocative paintings of the crossings, a cast of professional dancers and local participants imagine the stories and tales of those that once crossed the sands in the last of the light. Commencing an hour before sunset, together the audience and performers witness the phenomenal transformation of the Bay at day’s end.

Between water and land, between day and night, between those that once walked the sands and those that still do, Longways/Crosswise creates a tangible, lived encounter with the shifting, sifting world of Morecambe Bay.

Longways/Crosswise was commissioned by Morecambe Bay Partnership.
