About the project

This 18-month project will culminate in the completion of an academic monograph (Performing Landscapes: Mountains, to be published by Palgrave), a new piece of practice-led research, based on the first ascent of Indian Face in Snowdonia, premiering at the Kendal Mountain Festival (KMF) in 2017, and an international symposium.

KMF are close collaborators on the project alongside a postdoctoral researcher who will  develop the performance piece and to gather some of the brand new data for the project. A wide range of public events are also planned, including talks at Mountain Festivals in the UK and Canada and a new series of Mountainsides seminars, bringing together theatre academics, mountaineers and explorers to discuss common themes such as risk, vertigo and exposure.
