Peace Camp 2012

Of Life and Light

Eight murmuring, glowing encampments appeared at some of our most beautiful and remote coastal locations, from County Antrim to the tip of Cornwall, from the Isle of Lewis to the Sussex cliffs - as well as Cemaes Bay, Anglesey, where this film was shot.

Designed to be visited between dusk and dawn, Peace Camp was a poignant exploration of love poetry and a celebration of the extraordinary variety and beauty of our coastline.

Something extraordinary happened this year as part of the London 2012 Festival.

Inspired by the Olympic Truce, whose roots date back to Ancient Greece, renowned director Deborah Warner was commissioned to create a coastal installation encircling the UK in collaboration with actor Fiona Shaw.

Peace Camp was co-commissioned by London 2012 Festival and Derry-Londonderry City of Culture.
