BY OUR SELVES - PERFORMANCES
Toby Jones, Iain Sinclair and Andrew Kötting (dressed as a Straw Bear), made a five-day walk from Epping Forest to Helpston in Northamptonshire, following in the footsteps of the poet John Clare. Clare’s delirious march is the spine of the project. A great English pilgrimage, a self-enacted novel in the tradition of Pilgrim’s Progress.
The walk was documented using pin-hole photography and video and has now been edited to form the backdrop for a series of live performances. Along with Iain Sinclair and Andrew Kötting, the artist Jem Finer, the singer Kirsten Norrie and the musician David Aylward will support the multi-media performance of spoken word, moving image and soundscape.
