About this event

‘an evening of listening’

Thurs 7th April 7:30 - 9 pm - Performance by Hayley Harrison at 8 pm

The evening will include ‘Projection’ a participatory interspecies performance led by Hayley Harrison, bat echolocation led by Michael Smythe - accompanied by nettle pakora, herbal tea & a pit fire.

Since the spring of 2021, Hayley Harrison has been collecting questions from different communities - ‘If you could talk to plants and trees what would you ask them?’ The questions vary from humorous to poignant – ‘what did you have for breakfast’ or ‘do you feel welcome’. This interspecies event is a chance to stand together and listen to what the answers might be.

‘Projection’ will be performed at dusk around 8 pm - followed by bat echolocation and listening session with bat detectors led by Phytology’s Michael Smythe. Nettle Pakora will be harvested from BGNR Medicine garden and made by Frank Kelly.

‘Projection’ is part of a new body of work developed at Phytology Bethnal Green Nature Reserve as part of her Developing Your Creative Practice project ‘Practicing Outside’ supported by Arts Council England

This event will be filmed - participation in the participatory performance is optional.
