Walking piece details

This experience is a work in progress, part of the development of the project ‘Toolkit for the Eremocene.’ Which focuses on the relationship between nature and mental health (Ecopsychology) as well as the impact of humans on nature – with a specific focus on sound.

I am asking 2 questions:

Is it possible to design a walk that is a theatrical sensory experience?

How can we re-awaken and attune senses we have evolved to bypass as a way of re-wilding ourselves? How can a gentle, playful and mindful exercise encourage us to reflect on our relationship with our natural and urban environments.

This first iteration of the walk has been created by myself in collaboration with a Tess Latham, movement artist and Anisha Fields, theatre designer. At a time when we have been unable to make work for theatres, we are exploring how we might apply the principals of creating theatrical experiences to non theatrical spaces.

The experience takes the form of a scored or guided walk in which the participant is guided to find several locations and invited to explore those locations in unusual ways.

The participant is presented with choices, suggestions and invitations to engage in different ways with their environment.

This walk is designed to be undertaken in any urban or suburban location, around the hours of sunset.

I am seeking feedback from those who undertake the walk in order to develop the idea further.

Future iterations of the walk will focus on the inclusion of audio and the development of the participants journey using interactive story tool, Twine.

Supported by the Arts Council England.
