Archive Shelf Location 6A5(6)
Publication Date 02 Jul 2005
Description In exploring 'empire' through the optic of Northern England, Tim Brennan has been led to the work of the C19th antiquarian, William Hutton. In 1801 Hutton left his home in Sutton (Birmingham) and set out on a walking tour which led him to Carlisle and along Hadrian's Wall. Brennan has taken Hutton's text and itinerary as a palimpsest in order to arrive at a new performance text. The outcome is a performance colliding action and reading to arrive at a collective dynamic in which the notion of audience may dissolve and help to further explode the critical and allegorical dimensions of empire.
