The Moment I Saw You I Knew I Could Love You
Curious, UK

Written and Devised by
Leslie Hill and Helen Paris
With Claudia Barton
Filmmaker Andrew Kotting
Composer Graeme Miller

“There are a thousand beautiful moments… It’s a rich and rewarding experience being immersed in this watery world”
Total Theatre

A highly original and haunting performance installation,
The Moment I Saw You I Knew I Could Love You blurs the boundaries of film, music and live action.

Set inside the belly of a whale, the audience is cast adrift in life-boats to be fully immersed in stories, myths and siren songs about gut feelings, memories, love and survival.

Andrew Kotting, composer Graeme Miller and chanteuse Claudia Barton have crafted a magical world and quest to contemplate the intricacy, beauty, fragility and wonder of life.
