‘Park Wanderings’ is a trilogy of short films, commissioned by Southwark Park Galleries, and created during Lockdown 1.
Where’s Heaven? Through the rose garden
What’s Tea? An old pond to fish in
What’s Autumn? When she undresses, or leaves
Created by dance companies Corali and Impermanence, with designer Pam Tait and musician Andy Balcon, ‘Park Wanderings’ is a poetic response to Southwark Park and Alec Finlay’s permanent nest box trail, ‘Questions and Answers, (after Paul Celan)’, commissioned by Southwark Park Galleries in 2018. Corali dancer Bethan Kendrick developed movement material that captures her imaginings of roses, moorhens, diving into a cup of tea and moss covered statues.
The three films were created during lockdown in May 2020 and will be produced as QR codes and placed around Finlay's Sculpture trail in Southwark Park.
