It Could Only Happen Here: Jim Dahl’s unreal Boat tour is a new live work by Tim Bromage, commissioned in partnership with the Live Art Development Agency, Somewhere and UP Projects for the Floating Cinema 2013.

Inspired by the site of Regent’s Canal, this new commission playfully explores the facts and folklore of the London waterways. Using costume, text and song, the unreal boat tour is an exploration and celebration of a life upon the water.

The Floating Cinema 2013 is a unique cultural space based on London’s waterways during the summer months. The 2013 programme theme is ‘Extra-Ordinary’ and events will range from a Horror Marathon to Micro-Chat shows to diverse special commissions and educational events. www.floatingcinema.info
