GOING OUT | GOING IN & GOING IN | GOING OUT – Laura Fisher, with music by Sonia Killmann

The viewer is indoors, looking out through a window, towards a lush, green garden. The words GOING IN GOING OUT are layered over the image in white, and intersect like answers in a crossword.

GOING OUT | GOING IN is an audio performance for headphones and a solo journey through an urban landscape. From an audio track downloaded to a smartphone, the performance asks the listener to put on headphones and take a journey through their local area. With gentle, spoken instructions and an original soundtrack of ambient music, the listener is invited to slow down, observe the streets and buildings around them and be guided by their curiosity on a journey through their city or town. GOING OUT | GOING IN contemplates the built environments we inhabit and the ways they move us. 

GOING IN | GOING OUT is an audio performance for the radio and a shared dance across many households. Broadcast through the radio or downloaded and played through speakers, this performance invites listeners to participate from their own homes and be gently guided through relaxation and movement. Using field recordings, words and original music to immerse the listener in sound and quiet the clutter of everyday life; listeners are invited to take a moment to pause, to connect with their bodies and memories and to move with others in a shared moment in time. GOING IN | GOING OUT contemplates the body as a site for memory and bodies as a shared site for choreography across time and place. 

GOING OUT | GOING IN & GOING IN | GOING OUT were created by Laura Fisher, with sound by Sonia Killman and produced with support from Future Paisley and Renfrewshire Leisure.
