Dumbstruck on Bazely Street, set in London, to be listened in Cape Town

Mother City, set in Cape Town, to be listened in London

ONE OH EIGHT / TWIN GEOLOCATED AUDIO DRAMAS

To listen in situ, go to Echoes.xyz or download the app from the AppStore or Google Play. Download the app (and the audio drama via the app) BEFORE you board the 108 bus.

To listen at home, see the audio players above. Recorded in binaural sound – please listen on headphones or earbuds.

108 in London: Lewisham > Blackheath > Peartree Way > Millennium Village > North Greenwich > Poplar > Bow > Violet Road > Stratford City > Stratford International Station

The route proceeds through strikingly contrasting areas: predominantly middle-class Blackheath, the new developments on the Greenwich Peninsula, multi-ethnic Tower Hamlets, to end at the white elephant of Stratford International Station – where, despite its name, no international services call. The audio drama is set from Blackheath to Poplar.

108 in Cape Town: Hangberg > Hout Bay Harbour > Sea Point > Adderley

Under the apartheid system, the Group Areas Act designated Hangberg as a “coloured” residential area. Poverty and unemployment in Hangberg are high, and it has been the site of a number of political protests. Hout Bay & Sea Point contain multi-million rand mansions, luxurious holiday homes and some small wine estates.

Supported by funding from Goldsmiths, University of London Department of Media, Communications and Cultural Studies’ 40th Anniversary Community Fund.

With thanks to the Museum of Walking and #SoundWalkSunday Executive producer Andrew Stuck

Launch events in Cape Town on Saturday 7th September and London on Monday 2nd September.
