A live event on the Manchester Ship Canal commissioned by Emma Anderson, Exhibition Director, Lowry Arts Centre, 2003. The convention of a pleasure cruise was appropriated as a means to navigate, literally and imagnitively, the partially regenerated margins of the ship canal. The audience transported through the environment had simultaneously real and mediated experiences. The guides were artists who highlighted specific locations on the canal bank; narratives of the locations' identities were constructed and presented on the boat through narration and pre-recorded video sequences of the artists' performative activities at these locations, juxtaposing found historical texts, fiction and film that had used canalside locations (W.G. Sebald, The Emigrants and Tony Richardson, A Taste Of Honey) and interviews with residents and workers. The event was a research tool to collect audience memories and stories for publication. The publication is constructed to interrogate the documentation of live work.
