Project R-hythm was a performance-research project carried out on Holy Island in Northumberland.
Beginning August 2013 Project R-hythm collaborators used performance-making techniques to explore the effect that environmental rhythms have on everyday experience, and how these rhythms can form the basis of a live performance.
In August 2014 they created a walking performance which took audience members on a guided route around Holy Island, where they encountered live performance, participated in performance interventions and engaged in conversations around what it means to be in a relationship with a tidal island.
As a research project Project R-hythm revealed the unavoidable temporal qualities of a landscape and contrubted to the development of new performance making strategies for working with landcape as an artistic medium and collaborating presence.
