The Ghost of Someone Not Yet Drowned is a performance,
installation and exhibition in The Victoria Baths, Manchester. It consists of
live dance, live and mediated sound, projected images and text all of which
combine to explore the liminal place between breathing water and air. The
water, which was once the focus of the building, is long gone, but the empty
pools remain, filled for one night with sounds, movement, lights and memories
of long gone water… This piece is based on a near drowning experience and all
the things that got thought by the swimmer while caught in the water... 
The Ghost of Someone Not Yet Drowned is created and
performed by Julia Griffin, Karen Lauke and Helen Newall, with guest performer
Michelle Mann The project is funded by Arts Council England and Edge Hill
Watching Dance is working in collaboration with this
exciting project, supporting and developing innovative audience research in
immersive performance events.
The Victoria Baths is a building slowly coming back to life:
all proceeds from this event support the on-going restoration of the building.
Performance event: Thursday April 19th 2012 at
