Additional Information

Last Night's Party is a soundwalk based on folktales of fairy abductions set within Belvoir Park Forest in Northern Ireland. The walk takes the listener through one of Ireland's most historic woodlands, enveloping them in the sounds, poetry and myths from the area. As the listener walks, the sounds and voices they hear embellish the visual landscape they pass. 

The walk follows what appears to be a dream, recounted by a voice in the listener's headphones. This voice describes the very path the listener is treading, and gradually the fantastical experiences it describes begin to become reality as images and sounds recounted in the dream unravel right in front of the listener's eyes and ears. Eventually they have become a performer rather than listener and the story becomes reality rather than fiction.
