40KM was a collaborative project between myself and sonic artist Josh Barfoot. It is a live performance generated from field recordings and field notes gathered from a 40KM walk through the surrounding space of the host venue. These fragments of sound and word are combined in a live, semi-improvised performance that is presented in darkness. In the context of our highly visual culture, we were interested in offering audiences a chance to reimagine and re-inhabit spaces which have become familiar.
40KM was funded by the Goldsmiths University Special Project Fund. Three iterations were made on walks in London, Exeter, and Plymouth. These iterations were performed at Goldsmiths University, Theatre 503 (London), The Boatshed Theatre (Exeter), and Theatre Royal Plymouth (Plymouth).
Below are some excerpts of past performances.
