About Soundlandscape: A Dream of Death

Welcome to Haworth 1823. To live here now is to brave the ghosts. After a fitful and troubled sleep, a lone wanderer seeks solace in the Moors but finds herself venturing into a dream of death. Accompanied by her voice (and map), walk with our wanderer through the veil and answer the violent invitation of the wild, discovering what spectral figures may be lurking in the distant heather.

'SOUNDLANDSCAPE: The Wild Hauntings on the Moor' is a dual narrative audio theatre production which can be experienced self-guided on Haworth and Ilkley Moors. A Dream of Death can be enjoyed on its own, or with its companion piece Shadows on Shadows in either order. Created by Obscura Theatre and commissioned by the Brontë Parsonage Museum and Ilkley Literature Festival in a collaboration marking the Festival’s 50th Anniversary and the Museum’s Year of the Wild.
