40KM NEW MILLS
Chalkers Snooker Club, Buxton Road, SK22 3JT Doors 7.30pm
40KM is a live performance entirely generated from the field recordings and field notes gathered from a marathon walk through the surrounding space of the host venue. In this sense, each performance is bespoke and site responsive.
These fragments of sound and word are combined in a live, semi-improvised performance that is presented in total darkness.
We are interested in offering audiences a chance to reimagine and reinhabit spaces which have become overly familiar, and allow chance encounters in the environment to shape and dictate the content of the work. We have developed this in response to a visually dominated culture, in which our dependance on visual stimuli dictate our actions and hamper our ability to consider new ways of interacting with the city.
