Walking the Downs

Project Summary

Walking the Downs was a project that began in 1996 and involved several groups of people in the communities of East and West Sussex. The project intended to explore the experience of place through music, drama, image and movement. Considerable inspiration was taken from the surrounding area, particularly the South Downs, where some of the groups walked through.

The project culminated in several performances in 1998.
