Memento: Limehouse Town Hall

Memento: Tracing Stories through Sound

Limehouse Town Hall 2012

This forms the second part of the ‘Memento’ series.  Memento – Limehouse Town Hall, uses audio to guide listeners through the grand stories and little-known people of this building with a past. Looking at the first 50 years of it’s life from 1881, moments come alive through character driven narratives, heart-warming soundtracks and things to touch, taste, see. Take a memento from your experience or leave one behind.

The concept for this walk was lo-fi simplicity. The location speaks loudly so developing a complementary script and moving away from choreography was the focus. The aim was to create a personal piece of theatre that was effective alone or in a group.
