Ball, Day & Livergant’s Wapping Audio (2005)

In 2005 Artistic Director Katie Day collaborated with Matt Ball and Elyssa Livergant to create Wapping:audio, a theatrical audio walk delivered via mp3. The walk was an early and pioneering example of this form.

A life raft floating in a canal. A priest practicing for a funeral service. An abandoned shopping centre. Searching for lost love in the new heart of London. Walk with me…

Wapping:audio is a unique 40-minute site-specific digital audio walk. An intriguing mix of performance and sightseeing the audio tour guides solo walkers through the old London docks district of Wapping. Guided by a search for lost love it is a breathtaking collision of time and space providing the walker with a new perspective on this undiscovered part of the city. All you need to take part is a portable audio player and headphones.

Wapping:audio was part of NODE.London, a season of media arts projects in March 2006.
