CHESTERPERFORMS & MERCY:

Wish You Were Really There: Total immersion in poetry, music and arts

St Mary's Centre, St
Mary's Hill, Chester,
CH1 2DW

Saturday 29th May - Sunday 6th June 

Produced by Mercy and hosted by Ross Sutherland, (Time Out Critics
Choice Award 2010 and Time's top literary stars of 2008). He will be
joined by some of the UK's best poets, artists and musicians in an
unforgettable site-specific performance for one of Chester's finest
venues.

Mercy's striking approach has raised the bar in live literature. Their
shows follow an emotional arc combining a series of performances into a
thematic whole – peaking with high-energy pop music performances,
dipping into more intimate moments where spoken word takes centre stage,
and shifting between the two with highly ambitious music, poetry and
performance collaborations – all within site-specific lighting,
multimedia and arts setting. The effect is one of a genuine generosity
and will to entertain, and a highly original night out.

Tickets £8/£6 book
online,
call 0843 208 0500, or call into Chester Tourist
Information Centre

HERDING

SCREENDEVA @ CHESTERPERFORMS

St Mary's Centre, St Mary's Hill, Chester,
CH1 2DW

Saturday 29th May - Sunday 6th June 

http://www.chesterperforms.com/event/Herding_/382/129.aspx

Herding - "The act of
bringing individual animals together into a group, maintaining the group
and moving the group from place to place—or any combination of those"

Herding is a guided walk developed by sound artist
Ross Dalziel with young people from Bridge Foyer in Chester. It will
take participants on a journey inspired by the local area of St Mary’s
on the Hill, including the River Dee. Along the way there is reference
to Nigel Kneale's The Stone Tape (Directed by
Peter Sasdy 1972), pastoralism, online gaming & multiboxing. The
piece explores how we experience & move through public/private,
networked/real and past/present space.

Bring your MP3 player or borrow one of our head sets (£5 deposit) and
let the work guide you to hear the city as you never have before.
