Plug back into your roots for a little moment of clay country chill out.
This is a silent disco with a difference. Find your favourite walking trail or a sunny spot to sit in. Plug into the audio track of inspirational music and poetry and step into nature. Instructions run through the track to help you notice new things and take a little time for some peace and gentle wandering.
The Plug Back Into Your Roots experience has been devised by Suzie West and SpinDrift Dance Collective. The original music, poetry and footage has been inspired by the public’s tributes to Clay Country during lockdown. Plug Back into your Roots combines an original sound score from People String Foundation musician Ben Sutcliffe, songs and spoken word from Emily Woodman and Bec Appleby with gentle prompts and instructions to tell you some stories and take you on a wander with your feet or in your imagination to explore your surroundings. Wherever you are plugged in from, we guarantee you will be taken somewhere else for a while!
Plug Back into your Roots was co-commissioned by Wheal Martyn and Window into Whitegold as part of the Austell Project and is funded by Feast, Cornwall Foundation, Cornwall Council, Cornwall Museums Partnership, Arts Council England, and Whitegold as part of the Austell Project.
