Charter of the Forest: Two Way Radio Guided Tour

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.
