This performance and guided walk was devised in collaboration with Townley & Bradby, for the Lincoln Art Programme 2011.
We communicated remotely with groups of participants via walkie talkies, giving out instructions and information, some of it unreliable, and asking people to complete tasks and speak back to the radio. Through this disembodied communication, taking place deep in the thickets, we explored the imaginative spaces of woods and forests.
I’ll be performing a brand-new set of poems and texts written collaboratively with Holly Pester at Ledbury Poetry Festival this week. We’re creating new work based on the idea of radio, its associations with ruin and espionage but also with the voice at its most exposed.
We’re on from 9.30pm-10.30pm on 2nd July in the Burgage Hall. £6 entry. Bring your own drinks!
