The premiere of a new work by Anna Brownsted

in collaboration with Will Heasman and Lizzie Ballinger

 

Bringing together a group of strangers on one of the longest days of the year, Idle Hour invites you to linger within the unknown of a familiar place.

In an outdoor promenade experience delivered through wireless headphones, listeners are situated as protagonists of an unfolding narrative that warps time and heightens reality. Meditative yet visceral, this immersive soundscape prioritises presence, observation and the power of communal action.

We are alone, together.

 

Commissioned & produced by Cambridge Junction, supported using public funding through Arts Council England.

Anna Brownsted is an interdisciplinary artist working across sound, installation, performance and participation. Her work has been shown in museums, galleries, theatres and public spaces including the British Museum, Kettle’s Yard, UCL, the Roundhouse, Battersea Arts Centre, Home Manchester and Cambridge Junction, where she is currently an associate artist. Idle Hour is Anna’s first project with movement director Lizzie Ballinger and her third extended-soundtrack collaboration with composer Will Heasman. Their work together explores applied psychoacoustics, immersive narratives and aural intimacy. Previous collaborations include Splitter (2017) and Week Nine (2020).
