Charm for Rebirth

Performed at SPILL Festival of Performance.

We made boats from willow and tarred calico for four hours with everybody, then walked to the harbour-side singing. We carried a heavy rock painted silver and a heavy rock painted gold, and two branches of holly. Everyone else carried the boats. When We got to the harbour everybody picked the holly and placed a leaf in our boat. We put the boats into the water and tied them to the rocks. We got into the water with the rocks and swum out and dropped the rocks, sinking the ships.
