Interesting things we've found about walking

Dr Dee Heddon and Dr Cathy Turner

“Women Walking” has been supported by a small grant from the BA and is being undertaken in collaboration with Dr. Cathy Turner (University of Exeter). Our research explores the use of walking as primary material – process and/or output – in the work of women artists. (See “Walking Women: Interviews with artists on the move”, with Cathy Turner, Performance Research, 15.4, 2010).

“Performing Forests” explores the ways in which forests perform (as cultural, mythical, psychological sites), alongside the ways in which performances have been sites for various types of performances.
