Performance, Neuroscience and Trees Combine to Create a Captivating Playful Audio-Walk Through Leigh Woods
SOME PEOPLE CLIMB UP | Leigh Woods | 28 & 29 September and 4, 5 & 6 October
Start times: 10am, 11.30am, 1pm, 2.30pm & 4pm
Performance artist Sylvia Rimat is creating a thought-provoking, engaging audio-walk through Bristol’s most famous and loved woods, inspired by scientific research and personal stories collected in workshops.
The project explores our connectivity with the woodland and the natural world around us and draws, in the widest sense, on the importance of trees and forests to tackle climate change.
Equipped with audio devices and headphones, audiences will be guided through Leigh Woods to experience the woodland through all their senses.
Some People Climb Up is also an encounter with the metaphorical forest in our brain, populated by neurons that look just like tree structures. It draws on neuroscience, the intricate fungal networks between trees, plant signaling, symbology and our own personal stories related to the woods to create an original performance with a pinch of the surreal.
