Is this a Waste Land?
A performance through headphones for a disused urban space.
Amidst an intricate sound world, audience members and performers respond to multi-stranded head-phoned invitations and together they create a unique shared experience. Tentatively, carefully, urgently many worlds are created, destroyed, re-purposed, re-imagined in this generous playground built by everyone.
Is this a Waste Land? invites us to consider how we value space, waste, home, belonging and community.
How do we decide what a piece of land is worth?
What makes us feel like we belong?
How can we be together?

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 ⟶
