About

Collect your map from Bermondsey Station between 2-4pm to find durational performances, actions and site specific pieces along the Thames foreshore at low tide. Narratives, objects and actions will arise from mud, concrete and cul-de-sacs.

Starting Point: 2pm – 4pm Collect a Map from Bermondsey Tube Station, 142-154 Jamaica Road,

London SE16 4RX
End Point: 4pm The Mayflower Pub, 117 Rotherhithe St, London SE16 4NF

“Texts appear beneath your feet. Grid reference TQ335795. A seeping procession of walkers huddle on the foreshore, their fortunes being read by a transatlantic Mud-lark. Peering through binoculars, you witness a tiny figure on the other side of the Thames. It is waving a giant knife and fork. [Behind you: Drone sound of robotic lingerie graze on someone’s front lawn]. A foreshore-footed figure ushers the pilgrims into a garage behind the estates, where voices echo through wheelie bins. It’s not over until the invisible man returns” – Notes on last year’s walk.
