In this eerie and evocative audio adventure, Tamessa, the mysterious river goddess, leads the listener along her shores, on an atmospheric journey into London history - via the haunting stories of objects that have been lost in the Thames. Combining storytelling, poetry, song and sound effects to bring the river to life in a captivating audio fusion, FOUND has been adapted from a live, site-specific theatre project that was staged at the London Docklands artist’s colony, Trinity Buoy Wharf. The original show was created using historic objects from the collection of Steve Brooker, the Thames Mudlark, who co-presented the History Channel TV series, 'Mud Men.'
