Daisy Farris Dance Collective - The Great Thames Disaster

The Princess Alice was a Victorian Paddle Steamer running cruises from London to Sheerness. As she returned to London one evening in 1878, a fatal crash took place, causing The SS Princess Alice to sink, killing hundreds of passengers. The Great Thames Disaster reimagines this forgotten part of history which had such a huge impact on Londoners and communities along the Thames.
