A Mis-Guided Wander in Llandudno + talk on Pilgrimages in Everyday Places with Phil Smith

Join us for a walk at 11, and/or lunch at 1 and a talk and discussion at 2pm with Phil Smith, known for creating performance walks from Kensington Gardens to rocky North Devon promontories, from long Cornish beaches to Ipswich’s suburbia via Sussex re-wilding sites, will be creating an instant mis-guided tour of a few streets in Llandudno, looking at the secret history of apparently innocent signage, the mysterious journeys of materials and the way that myths are waiting to give meaning to even the most ordinary of places.  

After our wander, we will have lunch (provided) and then Phil  will describe his work over the last 20 years as a walking artist and researcher: his transformation from playwright to a wanderer researching the narratives and dynamics of place and space, making performances about walking. Phil will describe how the idea of ‘mythogeography’ slowly emerged out of site-specific theatre to become a means to searching for the wonderful in the ordinary, a mental and physical discipline with relevance to dance, pilgrimage and geography.    
Lindsey will share the results of her residency, O Fa’ma I Fa’ma: A People’s Map of Llandudno, and there will be lots of opportunity for discussion and interaction.
