In this unique outdoor experience created by Charlotte Spencer Projects, green spaces become part of an exploratory, interactive and fully immersive audio journey. You are given an mp3 player and headphones, and joined by others. Original music, text and sound design will guide and inform this walk as you move into a realm of spontaneous interactions with your surroundings and the others walking with you.
Moving between watching, listening, and following instructions, Walking Stories takes you on a journey with yourself. Risk-taking and innovative, but utterly unthreatening immersive theatre. Walking Stories questions our feelings about ourselves, community, memory and journey. It is an outdoor, sited work, but designed for many sites. The headphones remove you from the clutter of the rest of your life, and gradually you sink into a spacious place to share with others and explore for yourself.
You will at one moment be running, feeling the wind in your hair and your heart in your chest, and in the next moment you will be standing in total stillness feeling like the world is motionless beneath you. It will give you the gift of time to yourself, and space to breathe and enjoy simple pleasures with a new and refreshing perspective.” (Audience member)
