‘Ring around the riptide’ – The Fishwives

Production by Natalie Austin & Jason Randall

Grahamstown band, The Fishwives, showcase “Ring around the riptide”. Through interior and exteriors the scene moves the instrumental ensemble through various natural settings. The talents of the five-piece band and a fire act are combined in their usual practice room lit entirely by candle light. and sorrounded by all the instruments of multi-skilled musicians. The symbolism of rings move from inside the burning room to sunlight outside. The sun complimens the burning candles and moves from day to night. Fire is spun around as if a riptide and flames split the sky.

The Fishwives are Celery Burger, Lizzie-Lou Gaisford, Nicole Germiquet, Cal Thompson & Strato Copteros
