Circumstance bring a unique performance, A Folded Path, to Birmingham as part of the Supersonic festival. The performance invites the audience to become the city’s orchestra, creating soundscapes while walking on a choreographed journey through its streets.
A Folded Path is a pedestrian speaker symphony, a soundtrack for the city, carried through the streets by you, experienced by everyone it passes.
30 custom-built, location-sensitive portable loudspeakers create a stunning and evocative cinematic layer over the city streets, each playing a different element of the music Circumstance have composed. One might be playing a voice, another a sweeping violin or glistening electronic tone.
In small groups, you will take different routes through the city, coming together at points to create moments of harmony and resonance.
BCMG audience members are not required to buy a festival ticket to participate. The performance lasts about an hour and involves walking so please wear appropriate footwear. The city centre starting location will be revealed on sign up.

Each performance is for 30 participants only.
