STACKED WONKY – “THE LANDINGS”
In March 2017 I joined Stacked Wonky’s team and embarked on an epic journey, with this completely mind altering piece of work. We made it over a course of 7 months and spent many hours, days, nights walking, processing, talking, connecting and of course dancing. The result was wonderful and a process that I am utterly proud to have been part of.
The Landings //
‘The Landings is a performance journey accessed by walking the hinterland of fields, drainage channels, sunken lanes, railway lines, small copses and shore between Blue Anchor and Minehead towards dusk. Here you will find a cast of 20 performers aged 5 to 70.
The Landings exists because of the death of Alan Kurdi, a 3-year-old Syrian boy who drowned trying to reach Europe in September 2015.
As The Landings involves two entry points and multiple pathways, you can decide how to navigate through the land depending on which performance encounters you stay with, and which you leave behind. As a result, your performance journey might differ from other audience members.
Whether in quiet copses, on little-used farm tracks or at isolated railways crossings, you will walk with, join and leave performers all tied to a need to keep going, despite the unknown ahead.’
‘The Landings’ was made and performed from March – October 2017 in Minehead, Somerset.
