Adam Chodzko’s ‘Rising’ podcast- play here
We are delighted to announce the launch today of Adam Chodzko’s first radio broadcast Rising, an extraordinary journey into a future flooded Great North Run.
Put headphones on (it will sound much better) and listen to Rising
As part of the British Science Festival 2013, Chodzko has produced this audio work for fatigued athletes and their supporters to listen to on basic.fm after the Greart North Run whilst on their way back home on Sunday 15th September.
The famous sight of runners passing across the Tyne Bridge out of Newcastle has become for Chodzko, a ritualistic preparation for a city’s evacuation prior to its final submergence under flood waters. This becomes an annual exercise in escape showing the Great North Run’s ongoing ability to evolve, actually incorporating the challenge of flooding into the event. The work will operate in a hypnotic way to address the reality and consequences of climate change.
Rising has been co commissioned by Invisible Dust and Great North Run Culture as part of the British Science Festival taking place in Newcastle 7th-12th September. More info.
