In this workshop we will explore letters by Van Gogh about his experience here in London and also consider what it would have been like to see this city through his eyes, allegedly suffering from epilepsy, bi-polar disorder and delusions.
We will work together on the walk narrative through interactive workshops that explore our own stories in connection to Van Gogh’s.
These walks will use a source of inspiration the victorian row house situated at 87 Hackford road where Vincent Van Gogh resided in 1873 whilst in London.
We will explore walking around the area, passing Van Gogh’s former residence and invite people on to a new journey of discovery. this will be a one to-one performance, in which one audience members walks on a narrated journey, which they can hear over headphones.
