Hidden Rivers of London
19:00 - 20:30
Suitable for ages 7+
In this three-act performance by Global Generation Fellows of Story Garden, a thriving community garden behind the British Library, performers will share personal water-based memories, reveal the heritage of the river Fleet, and explore its mythology.
Researching the scientific, historical, cultural, and personal impact of water, Fellows will bring to the event their explorations so far and celebrate the strength of water in connecting ecological communities and bringing to the surface forgotten voices.
The performance is followed by a creative writing workshop that encourages you to think about your own relationship to water.
What hidden voices does Nature carry?
What happens if we slow down or sit still more often?
Do we have hidden rivers inside ourselves that are waiting to be heard?
Refreshments will be provided.
