Regent’s Canal, October 2013

Created by Dewi Hughes

Part guided walk and part soundscape, this unique artistic adventure was first conceived as an event for Hallowe’en 2013, and is suitable for any night of the year. A hardy band of brave souls were led along the Regent’s Canal, while listening to a unique recording of eerie tales by writers including Elizabeth Gaskell and MR James. The stories, partly acted, and partly narrated, were arranged, adapted, recorded and edited by Dewi Hughes, with a team of salon:collective actors. As the participants walked and listened, out of the shadows came strange, spectral figures.
