A Charm of Watery Foxes: long Thameside by Night explore the urban river

September 11 @ 9:00 pm - September 12 @ 12:30 am


A Charm of Watery Foxes: skulking long Thameside by Night we explore the urban industrial river – its heritage and future past.(Between Woolwich and Canary Wharf).

Join a spectacular exploration by night of Thames side’s urban and industrial heritage, we take you on a walk from Woolwich Old Docks to Canary Wharf. Follow live soundscapes and walk livestreamed as watery foxes spread out along the thames and stream towards a charming meeting.

Listen from the comfort of your den to a live collective exploration of London, as watery foxes emerge from their dens and earths to scavenge or play along the Thames, among the remnants of industrial and dockland heritage. The Skulking foxes meet up in a variety of charming rendez-vous and allow you to hear the city through human or non-human eyes.

By deep listening to the Thames through the other, its foreshore and environment, along the south side pathway, crossing creeks, rivers, streams, sewer and slipways; as we pass docks, quays, drydocks, ponds and canals, together we begin to build a picture of the river’s central role in feeding and sustaining the City and in maintaining the equilibrium of the metropole.

This event is part of ongoing project – OtherWalking and as an exploration of our Watery Commons – and as one other method to listen in to a lockdowned city.

Friday 11 September 9pm -1am (Saturday 12 September)
