Summer Work

We spent much of the summer beavering away at our project, Is this a Waste Land?  We had a remarkable and intensive time. For latest updates on the process of creation, please take a look at the blog. The new work which has been commissioned by Our Woods, Corby will preview in April 2017.

Have a look at our small video trailer from our research period.


We rely on the generosity of individuals through our Patrons Scheme to support the development of new artistic projects, touring current work and the on-going running costs of Charlotte Spencer Projects. We would love you to consider becoming a Patron. Find out more ⟶ Sign up today⟶

Is this a Waste Land?
A head-phoned live performance for disused spaces which offers new ways of being together.

The new show will be ready to share with the rest of the world in 2017! Find out more ⟶
