Walk wild landscapes in your imagination with Kate Fletcher, author and Professor of Sustainability, Design, Fashion at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion, University of the Arts London. Wild Dress uses clothes as a way into a changed understanding of the natural world. It stitches together experiences of bodies and landscapes through the medium of what we wear. We are at the first stages of creating a sonic performance piece that explores these texts in varying environments; making with, as well as, for our audiences.
A collaboration between Zoë Svendsen, and Olivier-award-winning sound designer Carolyn Downing (Almeida/National Theatre/V&A Museum) – and you, our listeners! We would like to invite you to be part of our first audience – and to draw on your experience of listening to Wild Dress to shape the next stage of the Wild Dress performance, which we hope to bring back to the festival in the future.
You will need headphones, a device to play the pieces on, and an outdoor place where you can walk (or sit) and listen. Each piece lasts between 2 and 10 minutes.BOOK HERE
