Float Tank #5

Float Tank.jpeg

A Float Tank is a lightless, soundproof tank filled with water at skin temperature, in which individuals float in isolation, used to test the effects of sensory deprivation."

This is the fifth in a series of experimental gigs called Float Tank. The artists will perform with the audience plunged into complete darkness.

Float Tank #5 is a continuation of the series of shows that plunge the audience into darkness, playing with their senses and concepts of what a live music performance can be. Theatrical and sometimes intense, if you are claustrophobic or scared of the dark, this show is not for you. (2hr show with an interval) Tickets Available from the Great Yorkshire Fringe Website.

Disabled Access  
Due to the ‘work in progress’ state of the Arts Barge at this year’s festival, we regret that wheelchair access down to the performance space is not possible.   

Through Riverside 2019 we aim to raise interest and funds to return in 2020 with full disabled access lift and toilet facilities. 

In the meantime, the gang-planks onto the barge are wide and wheelchair users are very welcome to enjoy the deck area. Our Riverside marquee (24th - 28th July) is free and accessible to all. Accessible toilet facilities in St. George’s Field car park, will be available during all Arts Barge Riverside Festival opening hours.
