Outdoor theatre performance in Cromer

An outdoor theatre and dance performance exploring people's relationship with the sea has been taking place in Cromer.

An outdoor theatre and dance performance exploring people's relationship with the sea is taking place in Cromer all this week.

Seasaw, an outdoor trail of dance, performance and theatre snippets, is being staged on Cromer seafront as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 2011 (NNF11).

It is also part of the Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival, which is taking place from May 20-22.

Parts of the performance include a mermaid being found washed up on the seashore and a couple out for a picnic at the seaside.

Derek Purnell, general manager of Tilted Productions who are putting on the performance, said: 'During the trail there are various snippets of performance theatre and dance all themed and inspired by how we relate to the sea and shore line, from Victorian bygone days through to how we sometimes use the sea as a rubbish dump.

'Some sections are humorous, some are poignant, it is a real mixture and suitable for all the family'
