Walking Stories in Dance Umbrella 2015 

Walking Stories will be part of London’s international dance festival, Dance Umbrella this year. Presented in four London Parks, it will run every day of the festival from the first Saturday 17th – 31st October. Unless the storm has a name we’ll be going ahead!


Funding Success

We are delighted to say that we have been granted funding from Arts Council England for the research period of our latest project: Is this a Waste Land? (ITAWL) We start work properly in 2015. The project is made possible with amazing financial support from Greenwich Dance, South East Dance, Sound and Music and Patrons of Charlotte Spencer Projects. More coming soon!

Is this a Waste Land?

We’ve been busy researching this new project since the start of the year. This is a performance work designed specifically for two contrasting sites – an industrial ‘wasteland’ space and a forest. We are attempting this: How we can respond with hope and positivity times of uncertainty and crisis? It is a project about utility of space, development,  and community in liminal spaces. It is in process. We will keep you posted as it develops. We’ll keep you posted with how we get on.


Walking Stories – an audio walk for parks

Supplied with mp3 players and headphones, audiences share in a unique outdoor experience, where green spaces become part of an exploratory, interactive and fully immersive audio journey. Moving between watching, listening, and following instructions, Walking Stories takes you on a journey with yourself. Find out more ⟶


Cycle Stories – a film

This documentary film by David McCormick shares our journey in the making of Walking Stories – a trip of 3000km by bicycle across England and France.


PROGRAMMING INFORMATION ⟶

The blog thread of this website provides a space for people outside of the studio walls to have a glimpse into our working process. It is also to give us the challenge of trying to write/share what we’re doing as it develops – so inherently tricky to articulate something 2-dimensionally that is utterly physical, web-like, messy, and multi-dimensional, especially when we’re in the midst of it. Have a read!


Great Review from Brighton International Festival

“Contemplative and profound, Charlotte Spencer Project’s audio walk through woods in Stanmer Park draws you effortlessly into an experience of natural choreography. It is a choreography of groups and solitude; of the natural world and the rhythms and patterns that emerge from everyday living. It is one of the most calming, quietly beautiful and evocative outdoor pieces I have ever experienced.” Full review ⟶
