England’s Pleasant Land: A Remake

Venues

  • The Department of Overlooked Histories, Wysing Arts Centre

    12 – 27 November 2011

‘England’s Pleasant Land: A Remake’ revisited the subject matter of a 1939 pageant play by E.M. Forster, and attempted to identify the problematics of its telling. ‘Journeys in Taste’, a scripted rehearsal performed in peasant costume, reflects on how pageant reenactments were a particularly linear, class-based, empirical telling of history. Other ‘vignettes’ by invited participants investigated how preservation and historic/natural authenticity operate within a contemporary idea of the countryside.
