dc.description.abstractThis was a site specific performance project commissioned by East England Art Council, Bedford Council and Bedford Creative Arts Gallery. Material collected from the Bedford area between August and December 2002, drawing on memories, cultures and myths particular to the town, provided the basis for nine performance artworks. The interest here, from someone whose research focus is performance and its traces, was in how a performance might enlarge upon or transform the icons or histories which already belong to a place. Each performance was executed at a specific site in Bedford, and each explored a particular form of performance art presentation and structure relative to the history involved. The contribution to the field was a discourse through the medium of performance on society’s fascination with urban myth related specifically to the town of Bedford, England. Overall, the outcomes of the Bedford Project included: 9 performances, 2 installations (Bedford Crematorium Chapel and Bedford Museum), 3 exhibitions (Bedford Creative Arts Gallery; Cecil Higgins Gallery, Bedford Museum; and The Gallery, Southwark Park, London), 1 vinyl record (God is Sexy by the Panacea Society [a Bedford-based group], Trace Records, TR001), 1 publication (The Bedford Project, Bedford Creative Arts Gallery, ISBN 83-917011-5-8).en
