Bristol Tidal Revues

Added 5 months ago

Bristol Tidal Revues are irreverent, meaningful and experimental cabarets allowing people to share ideas about the water and the influence of the pull of the moon on our history and the future. Sharing films, poems and research with people who didn't necessarily want to know.

Tidal Revues occur during Spring and Neap Tides 

If you have something to share or want to join a Tidal Revue please check the Bristol Tide Time Table to find out when the next Tidal Revue is or just get in touch.

All funds raised go towards the Bristol Loves Tides Schools Programme which makes over 1000 primary school children and their families more deeply aware of the importance of their city's tides each year.

NO REST FOR THE FLUID ~ NATHAN HUGHES / ROUGH GLORY FILMS ~ 2016 (16 mins)
Proxi and Peri, 'the tides made flesh' awake on a bleak shore, surprised to still be human, as they anticipated a well-earned

about our ambivalent relationship with the non-human world.
