“There are times when one hangs suspended, hovering between the past and the future – there aren’t many times like this. Lightheaded, pregnant with possibility, wondering where the next footstep will fall. This is one such." - Mercedes Kemp

In summer 2020, after months of lockdown, we set out to create an Audio-visual experience in the landscape, at home in Cornwall on the cliffs at Botallack.
Our journey in sound and landscape explored responses to isolation and connectedness within our communities.
The live showing of Meet Me at the Edge was cancelled due to Covid19. We were unable to share the work with our live audiences. But we were able to adapt.
This film is a culmination of that work and the stories we discovered. A unique mosaic of real stories contributed by real people.
We feel it’s an important time to be sharing these narratives.
We have spent the last 6 months working remotely with the people that have contributed their testimonies to Meet Me at the Edge. We have gathered sound and film footage recorded by those people, from their own personal edges and we have created a Film. A collective expression exploring and documenting isolation and connectedness which will premiere for free on 21st April 2021 at 7.30pm on our YouTube channel.
“We find ourselves standing at a new edge as the world now begins to reopen and get louder again. It’s exciting!
But just before we step or leap forward. If that’s back to normal or to new beginnings… We invite viewers at home to spend just under an hour, to watch, listen and think…
What have the events of the past year taught us? What old behaviour do we want to set down and leave behind and what do we want to pocket and take with us, as we boldly or tentatively step forward together.”

Meet Me at The Edge – FILM is a unique mosaic of real stories, contributed by real people. We feel it’s an important time to be sharing these narratives.
As an organisation, we are evolving to reach a wider and more diverse audience. The film will be available in English and British Sign Language alongside an audio description including an audio introduction establishing the visual world of the film.
We have designed creative captions into the film to make it accessible to hard of hearing, D/deaf and neuro divergent audience members but also to explore depth and meaning in people’s words and emotion. Creative captioning is a technique of laying texting around the people and landscape, allowing you to absorb both text and image together.
