Friday 27 – Saturday 28 September: The Ballad of Peckham Rye
Experience French & Mottershead’s moving audio work Woodland at the first public outdoor staging of the work in London at One Tree Hill, Honor Oak. Woodland describes your body’s slow fade into the leaf litter of the forest floor, whilst lying under the ancient oak on top of One Tree Hill. This work connects you deeply to your body and to the oak itself, and considers the biological and chemical processes that continue long after you are conscious, as you are gently subsumed by the earth over thousands of years. Woodland is one of four works from French & Mottershead’s Afterlife series: exploring stories in poetic yet forensic detail, of the human body’s decomposition and the influence of different environments. They collaborated with forensic anthropologists, ecologists and conservators in developing each piece, researching minute details in the science of decay and renewal to create a series of works that puncture our fear of the unknown.Booking essential: You can experience this meditative and deeply affecting work by booking tickets here. Each listening experience lasts 30 minutes. This is an outdoor work. Please remember to wear warm, waterproof clothing and sensible shoes. Woodland explores death and decomposition and is recommended for ages 14 and over or by parental guidance. Various times available from 6pm on Friday until 8pm on Saturday. One Tree Hill, Honor Oak Park Road, SE23. £5.75 – £6.50 + booking fees

Get your tickets early! James Riley is an absolutely fantastic singer, songwriter and  guitarist who has played all around the world but happily (for us) is currently based in London. Johns & Nowak are an English acoustic duo who like to have fun with American music; weaving together mandolin and guitar and singing songs of heartache and longing. Tickets £16/14  advance, £18/16  on the door (if any left). Door 7pm. Live music starts 8pm. For advance tickets and further information, please see www.thegooseisout.com
