Choirs in Corby

Is this a Waste Land?


Join Charlotte Spencer Projects on a piece of undeveloped land in the centre of Corby to be playful and creative. 

Is this a Waste Land? invites us to consider how we value space, waste, home, belonging and community. Part live performance, part interactive audio experience, Is this a Wasteland? presents an extraordinary way to re-imagine disused urban sites. 

You will be given headphones and invited to listen to a constantly shifting soundscape that is delicate and empty in one moment, infectious and playful the next. As day dips towards night we will make things with our hands. Many worlds are created, destroyed, re-purposed, re-imagined in this generous playground built by everyone involved.

Please bring an unwanted object to donate to the performance – this could be anything from an old bucket to a piece of wood, a bike tyre to an old brush!
