Audio Tour for Families
A Rain Walk
We invite you to a rain walk – a walk in the rain accompanied by the recorded voices of children from across Ireland and the UK. With their guidance the rainfall will become your own private theatre, a space in which to observe, imagine and play.
Because we are no better at predicting when it might rain than you are, everything you need to experience the show is contained within a little box that is posted to you when you purchase a ticket. Keep it safe until the weather turns. Then, whether in a drizzle or a deluge, alone or with friends or family, we invite you to step outside, feel the rain on your face, and think about your place in a world that is changing so swiftly around you.
A Rain Walk is an interactive audio walk for adults and families created remotely with children from across the UK and Ireland. One ticket can be used by a single person or a household of up to 5 people. Each audience member will require their own digital device on which to download and listen to the piece.
Originally co-commissioned by Dublin Fringe Festival, The Ark and Norfolk & Norwich Festival in 2020 , with commissioning support from The Place.
‘an elegantly executed blend of sound art and interactive theatre… turned a usually mundane walk in the rain into something magical.’
