SILT is a site-specific performance conceived by Arbonauts, artists Helen Galliano and Dimitri Launder.

Imagining a dystopian future of rising sea levels, it will be performed in the water of the distinctive tidal pool at East Beach in Shoeburyness. The work will feature local open-water swimmers and will now take place in Autumn 2021, slightly outside Estuary 2021 formal dates to enable full participation from the many swimmers who have signed up to take part. The exact date will be confirmed soon.
