They Went To Sea mural in Doncaster

Combining forces with the Polish Cultural Institute, Artbomb22 festival brings an incredible work of street artist injected into the heart of the city by acclaimed international artist Jola Kudela, known professionally as Yola. They Went To Sea is inspired by Edward Lear’s limerick, The Jumblies.

The Jumblies go on a sea journey in the least suitable vessel, a sieve, abandoning the old status quo in search of something new, but without thinking the journey through. It’s a metaphor for the migration movements around the world. The mural triggers a video of a performance by the Fertile Ground dance company, choreographed by Malgosia Dzierzon (Gosia).

Performers are surrounded by a symbolic sea created with the help of an algorithm that generates graphic waves in real time, using the luminance and the movement of the dancers, as well as the frequency of the music. Music composed by Julia Kent.

Join us for the opening of Artbomb 22! A night filled with performance and art!

‘They went to sea’
The Jumblies by Edward Lear – text adaptation by Aga Lesiewicz

They went to sea in a Sieve, they did,
In a Sieve they went to sea:
In spite of all their friends could say,
On a winter’s morn, on a stormy day,
In a Sieve they went to sea!
Far and few, far and few,
Far and few, far and few,
And when the Sieve turned round and round,
And every one cried, ‘You’ll all be drowned!’
For the sky is dark, and the voyage is long,
And happen what may, it’s extremely wrong
In a Sieve to sail so fast!’
Far and few, far and few,
Far and few, far and few,
The water it soon came in, it did,
The water it soon came in;
And each of them said,
If we only live,
Again we will go to sea in a Sieve,—
We will go to sea in a Sieve,—
We will go to sea,—
We will go,—
We will,—
