After the Flood

After the Flood is a site-based theatre performance created at Granary Wharf in Leeds as a commision for the Leeds Waterfront Festival 2016. Set six months after the devastating Christmas floods, it dramatised the real experiences of people who made a response to the tragedy.

“It made me think of the city differently… about the connection between the city and the countryside… It did all this in a clever, funny and gentle way, without forcing a message on to the audience” – Dr Lourdes Orozco, University of Leeds, Workshop Theatre.

The performance was commissioned by Professor Steve Bottoms as part of the ongoing research program Multi-Story Water. It has been documented in six parts by Big Media Film:
