Waterweek returns to examine waste water

Waterweek is devised by artists Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still, who have been collaborating on a project about local water for five years. They follow “an organic process of where thinking about and being with water will take them. ‘A water wandering’; inquisitive, interactive, immersive, reflective, poetic, experiential, unexpected, spontaneous and flowing”. This year Waterweek is about waste water: sewage, polluted water and water we waste. Xaverine M A Bates found out more.

Divertimento for Rope and Strings


A concert unravels, we step inside the music. Divertimento for Rope & Strings is a playful, unexpected collaboration between the artist, Gisele Edwards, and two eminent classical musicians. Crossing boundaries of circus, music, physical theatre and visual arts it looks at how we experience music three dimensionally – viscerally, physically, spatially. Dominika Hicks writes.
