An alleyway down the river in Deptford, one of the top 4 most gentrified areas in London 2023 to. On the other side of the river, Canary Wharf. The Thames, the division between to very different places but at the same time the same. The present and the future.

Capitalism, living crisis, gas, war, ideals, fight, search, limited, difference, power, powerless, limitless, electricity, gentrification. Few of the words that constructed this piece.

A bed on the river between these two points. The performers on the stairs as a representation of the social, economic, cultural and racial structure where the basics need have become unattainable; more to some than others. The rising ties pushing us little by little away from this bed. The tide as one of  the currents we face everyday in search of our needs.

Living, drowning.

The currents move, we all move. The ideals becomes unreachable. The unreachable becomes the unseen. Under the water. The currents move, it comes out again.
