Behind you is the world you know: your family, your home, and your life.  Across a bridge lies a land unknown.  With no idea what you’d find and who you’d meet, would you dare to cross?
The latest production from Thimble Theatre, Walk Ashore is the tale of one girl’s adventure through lands both familiar and strange. 
Through storytelling, physical theatre, and aerial circus, driven by an original intergrated score of live percussion, Walk Ashore draws upon both the oral tradition of the British Isles and the sounds and colours of the East to tell an unforgettable story of bravery and discovery. 

Walk Ashore was originally commissioned by the Veronica Stewart Arts Trust and presented by the trust in partnership with the Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival 2015.
