On 2 and 3 September 2017 the harbour in Randers, Denmark, became the stage for our spectacular large scale outdoor show, Watermusic, as part of the Aarhus 2017 European Capital of Culture celebrations.

Created and Directed by Kevin Finnan, Watermusic had a large cast including Motionhouse performers, singers, musicians, choirs and local community groups. Incredible digital projections created by Motionhouse’s long-term collaborator Logela created a world of visual magic, taking the audience on a journey through the story of Watermusic, telling stories of the relationship between land and water and the history of the area. Renowned Danish singer-songwriter Oh Land wrote and performed the music and also played the role of Queen of the Sea.
