Some People Climb Up
A wilderness of tranquility, the lungs of the city, a home, a refuge, a playground. Woodlands evoke senses, memories and emotions for all of us.
Sylvia Rimat takes us on a playful, thought-provoking and deeply human audio-walk, exploring our connectivity with the woodland around us. Equipped with audio devices and headphones, you will be guided through a forest to experience it through all your senses.
Some People Climb Up is also an encounter with the metaphorical forest in our brain. It draws on neuroscience, the intricate fungal networks between trees, plant signalling, symbology and our own personal stories related to the woods to create an original performance with a pinch of the surreal.
Based on an original concept created with Cat Jones.
Informed by personal stories from members of the Knowle West Walking Groups and students from Bridge Learning Campus, Hartcliffe, Bristol.
AVAILABLE FOR TOURING
