Ness is an immersive, 360 audio work, GPS located in the landscape at the ex-MOD site at Gunners Park, Shoeburyness.
Writer Robert Macfarlane, theatre-maker Zoë Svendsen and sound designer Carolyn Downing have collaborated to stage a re-imagining of Robert’s book, Ness (Hamish Hamilton, 2019) written in collaboration with the artist Stanley Donwood.
The sonic, theatre work is experienced through headphones and invites audiences to listen to the landscape reveal its past, as we witness the physical remnants of that history being reclaimed by nature.
The work is designed as a solitary experience, with all the equipment to experience the work fully provided.
Preview performances are now available to book for Saturday 29 / Sunday 30 and Monday 31 May, from 2pm.
Performances continue every Wednesday to Sunday from 12:20 until 16:40 - until 13 June 2021.
Please arrive 5 minutes before your timed slot.
