Project R-hythm

Say it slower.

Do it slower.

Slower than that.

That’s not slow enough.

Do it slower.

Start again. Say it slower. From the beginning. Slower.

Slow down.

You have to do it slower than that.

Do it slower.

Slower than that.

Project R-hythm is a performance-research project carried out by Tender Buttons Director Tess Denman-Cleaver and Artist Martine Vrieling van Tuijl on Holy Island in Northumberland.

Since August 2013 Tess and Martine have been using performance to explore the effect that environmental rhythms have on everyday experience, and how landscape can form the basis of a live performance.

In August 2014 they created a walking performance which took audience members on a guided route around Holy Island, where they encountered live performance, participated in performance interventions and engaged in conversations around what it means to be in a relationship with a tidal island.

Project R-hythm is ongoing…
