A City Full of Stories

room 11 ECHOES

This city is full of stories, many unseen and unheard. The windows and the bricks of buildings older than any of us: What have they seen? Who are the strangers that find themselves sitting next to each other on a bench? Where have they been and where are they going? Who are the creatures that we share the city with? What might the fox or the pigeon tell us if we took the time to listen? This SoundWalk brings to life the imagined stories of the buildings and pathways that surround us. A City Full of Stories asks us to slow down, look around and listen…

Marking 25 years of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields’ work with people experiencing homelessness, this SoundWalk has been especially created alongside participants for Marriner100 – the orchestra’s celebration of the centenary of its founder, Sir Neville Marriner.
