Guildhall students and established artists at the cutting edge of experimental live performance are responding to one of London’s most extraordinary historic sites, The Charterhouse.
For Unfinished this year, Nell Catchpole and Jan Hendrickse have curated a series of live performance interventions that subtly change the perception of this historic building. Working with its sense of permanence, peace and seclusion in contrast to the surrounding urban environment, the artists make use of the natural light, material and acoustic properties of the site. Paying attention to time and duration, the event will evolve throughout the day and into the evening, alongside the regular routines of The Charterhouse residents. You are invited to encounter these contemplative and playful interventions in your own time as you journey through the site’s many spaces.
The Charterhouse is an extraordinary historic site that has been living the nation’s history since 1348. In that time it has served as a monastery, private mansion, boys school, and an almshouse, which it remains to this day.
