Having created many magical projects in amazing sites across the country over the past 10 years, Geraldine at last comes to Artsadmin's home at Toynbee Studios to work on an new site-specific promenade performance.

Presented during Spitalfields Winter Festival in December, TOYNBEE will be an evocative journey around two historic buildings, celebrating the social, political and artistic significance of Toynbee Hall and Studios.

Not only is “the past a foreign country…” but so is the future. These different worlds are united within the two buildings as TOYNBEE delivers the past to the present and the future to the past, from the scale of an envelope to that of a container.

Within a landscape of live music, image and performance, unexpected fragments of the past contained within its walls wait to be revealed. Traces of lives are glimpsed out of windows, at the end of corridors and the turn of a stair, whilst footsteps echo to the sound of the different voices of the contemporary East End.

'Geraldine Pilgrim is a visual magician who has been creating site sympathetic shows long before such work became fashionable…'
Lyn Gardner
