Sounds of the place

Sounds of the Place, London, 2008

OB1 LIVE, Oxford Brookes University

A lightweight intervention celebrating the sounds of the place – the River Thames, Big Ben over the way, the carousel behind, the Railway above and Buskers below. Re-marking Hungerford Bridge with the imagined and the physical – asking who are the performers?

Working with the Saison Children’s Poetry Library at the Royal Festival Hall, wishing to bring the library outside for the summer. The Proscenium Pieces revealed the underestimated qualities of the everyday life of this transitory space along the South Bank in London.
