Spoken word piece for four voices will be activated live by local participants near/on the beach at around sunset over eight evenings in Margate and Whitstable. The sky, water and the horizon in the background, multiple voices overlap, repeat, and echo stories, weaved in the textual score, exploring the landscape (social, natural and ecological) of North Kent through language.
The project is in partnership with Resort Studios (Margate) and The Horsebridge Arts Centre (Whitstable), supported using public funding by Arts Council England. The performance will start around 10 min before the sunset and finish as the sun sits on the horizon, as a punctuation mark for a new chapter.
The last two events will be filmed and live-streamed.
