Tamara Ashley & Simone Kenyon: The Pennine Way: The Legs that Make Us


In the summer of 2006, artists Tamara Ashley and Simone Kenyon undertook the project, 'The Pennine Way: The Legs That Make Us'. Over 31 days they travelled across the Pennine Way creating a choreographic pathway - a shared journey and celebration of walking as dance and dancer as traveller.

There was a continual duet, the interaction with those they met along the way and interventions by six other artists; Jo Brown, Glyn Brewerton, Companions of Pram, Peter J. Evans, Laura Pedersen and Tim Rubidge. These guest artists were invited join Simone and Tamara on their journey across the 270 mile backbone of England; also making work and responding to the experience.

Simone and Tamara shared tales and memories of this 31 day choreography of adventures and the life of the Pennine Way through a performance lecture.

Tamara Ashley and Simone Kenyon share mutual interests in exploring performance and improvisation to build narratives within and for landscapes and places. Their work is concerned with specific response to and interaction with sites, bringing alive the heritage of the site and posing new ideas about places through performance.
