Guided Goitside (Radio Play)

First broadcast at Delius Arts Centre, Bradford for RECON Festival

Saturday 20th September, 2014




The piece was developed from a project that started in 2013 researching the counter-cultural histories of Bradford, and conversations with the people that played a role in them (see Mapping bRADford).

This outcome is a 20-minute audio piece that documents a guided walk around Goitside: an area of Bradford that was earmarked for regeneration by culture. The walk is derailed by interruptions and counterpoints from the audience as well as sound installations, music and poetry.

Guided Goitside was devised and created by Black Dogs with input and contributions from:

Iain Bloomfield

Johnny Buck

Gary Cavanagh

Mary Dowson

Robert Galeta

Steve McCabe

Chloe Pritchard

and Dusty Rhodes

Music by Andy Abbott, David Thomas, Oliver Thurley, The General Will, Voorhees and The Instant Automotons

Supported by Arts Council England, Bradford Community Broadcasting, Community Media Association, and the University of Bradford.
