Deserted places, remote voices: performing landscape. A meander through the agricultural landscapes of north Lincolnshire:pausing to reflect upon moments of performative activity, on past events and contemporary strategies, as topological phenomena; and upon the potential of region and chorography as critical optics in Performance Studies and cognate disciplines.

Mike Pearson studied archaeology in University College, Cardiff (1968-71). He was a member of R.A.T. Theatre (1972-3) and an artistic director of Cardiff Laboratory Theatre (1973-80) and Brith Gof (1981-97). He continues to make performance as a solo artist and in collaboration with artist/designer Mike Brookes as Pearson/Brookes (1997-present). In August 2010 he will direct The Persians for the newly launched National Theatre of Wales. He is co-author with Michael Shanks of Theatre/Archaeology (2001) and author of In Comes I: Performance, Memory and Landscape (2006); the monographs Site-specific Performance (2010) and All that remains: an imperfect archaeology of the Mickery Theatre, Amsterdam (2011) are forthcoming. He is currently Professor of Performance Studies, Aberystwyth University.
