        Walden         Walk at the Edge of the World, A



Walden

Synopsis:
On 4 July 1845, Henry David Thoreau walked into the woods near his hometown of Concord, Massachusetts and decided to stay. He built a hut next to a lake called Walden Pond and for the next two years attempted to live entirely by his own resources. as well as discovering the thrill of living life at no-one's behest but his own, Thoreau found something else - himself. Walden, Thoreau's account of his life in the woods, is one of the most extraordinary and unclassifiable books ever written. Magnetic North's adaptation reflects the book's many facets and contradictions in a piece of theatre created for non-theatre spaces that is part-performance and part-philosophy class. these performances, directed and adapted by Nicholas Bone and designed by environmental artists Charles Blanc and Tristan Surtees (Sans Facon), have been specially created for the gallery space at Stills.

Walk at the Edge of the World, A

Synopsis:
I began walking on May 24th 2001. A man invites the audience to come on a walk with him. When they reach their destination, he talks about walks he has taken, showing images of places he has visited. Audience and performer find the projected images leading them on another journey, as the hidden secrets of the landscape and the constantly shifting border between land and sea remind us that the past is always with us, whether we realise it or not. Created in collaboration with the international environmental arts practice Sans fašon, this award-winning play is a reflection on the the act of walking, exploring memory and place and the state of mind created by walking. "a rich tapestry, beautifully woven and with quiet points of resonance" The Scotsman. "A wonderful meditation on journeys, lives and spaces" Audience member.
