Noir Trail is a radio-based live performance work taking place over multiple locations through the night.
Listening on a hand-held transistor radio, audience tune to ‘Night Radio’, an enigmatic live radio broadcast, which draws them on to an unknown destination – on a journey outwardly through the night streets of Newport and inwardly through the soul of the night and all that that suggests.
Noir Trail is a personalised experience for multiple participants. The work interweaves live radio broadcast, installation, live performance and the night sky.
We have undertaken a number of developments through Substation, Newport, and CounterCurrent, Houston.
