Without Walls

As one of three pairs of artists commissioned for the 'Without Walls' project, Rachel Gomme and Charlotte Mew present a performance that traces and reflects on their process of collaboration over 5 weeks.

Meeting for the first time after they had been selected for the commission, Rachel and Charlotte embarked on a journey together, apart. Through a diary of found objects, each shared with the other her everyday journeys and exchanged something of her practice. The final performance, a promenade performance through the corridors of Chisenhale Dance Space and Chisenhale Art Place, uses objects, text, sound and movement to evoke both the sense of parallel journeys and the frustration of the not-quite-meeting amid busy lives.
