Narrator: Welcome to the City of Threads ‘We’re going in’ sister episode, where, through the magic of immersive sound, we’ll be taking you deeper into the heart of some of the places and moments in the journeys taken by Lou and Holly in their episode.
All of these recordings use binaural sound, which really needs to be listened to through headphones to get the full experience, so if you have some to hand, now is the time to go and get them, and put them on…
We’re starting with Lou’s experience of St Nicks Market. We’ll be diving deeper into the sensory delights of the market and get to experience it from her perspective.
Also in this episode we’ll be taking the A boards and underpass journey with Lou, spending some time with Holly in Queens square and we’ll hear more from those fountains on college green.
At the end of the episode you can listen to a song from Lou and hear the whole of Holly’s dance audio description too.
So let’s get started, with St Nicks Market ……
Holly’s Dance Audio Description – Full Transcript
Description of a moment of dance
with eyes closed,
lie motionless on the ground.
They are separated by space.
Lying on their backs,
Like upturned starfish,
their arms and legs outstretched,
Finding surface against the floor.
they delight in the sensation,
of limbs falling away from body,
the ‘lonely bone’,
Yielding, waiting and alert, we breathe…
Feet, skin, toes, palms, soft fingers curled.
Then, somewhere between naval and pubic bone,
we sense our centres,
and in unison, (or thereabouts),
we gather our limbs toward us,
roll onto our sides,
and curl up,
like two cashew nuts,
In the palm of your hand.
One of us notices the floor.
the smell of treated wood and washed cotton clothing,
as without pause,
and travel back to starfish.
Our eyes open.
We see the ceiling above us,
and allow that which is visible,
to orientate us in space.
By Holly Thomas
