City of Threads

City of Threads is a new 12-part immersive podcast series by PECo Theatre, which was co-founded by Studio resident Rachel Aspinwall.

Created by a team of visually impaired (V.I) and sighted artists, collaborators and participants, the podcast invites you on a journey into the city of Bristol, a place of sensory delights and navigational challenges, dangers and shared discoveries as experienced through the perspectives of its visually impaired citizens.

Each episode takes you on journeys into the city, in the company of the V.I. travellers who took them, and immerses you in stories of love, loss, activism, community, resilience and friendship. The podcast challenges assumptions, reveals new understandings and ultimately ask us to reimagine how our cities are working for us all.

The use of immersive sound design transports you into the heart of the journey, enriching and transforming the listener's own perceptions of the city through felt experience.
