Event details

06 - 9 Jul, 2022
£10 adults £5 young people and children

A promenade, site-specific theatre performance that engages the audience in traversing a floodplain near the River Stour in Wimborne, on a quest to find out the rivers secrets. On the way, you will meet a series of colourful characters who can open portals and allow glimpses into the secret world of a river, provided you can guess the riddles and meet the challenges. Starting from a wake for a passionate naturalist, the action follows his grandchildren as they try to make sense of the modern world, beset by pandemics and environmental crises. The performance, which includes drama, dance, live music and singing, puppets and sound installations, is performed by an inclusive cast of all ages under the umbrella of Wimborne Community Theatre, celebrating its thirtieth year of outdoor, site-specific performances celebrating Dorset’s unique environment.

‘Don’t walk to your tune, walk carefully’

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
