Escape, reflect, soundscape
Want to get away?
We offer deep relaxation at its most unexpected.
Join us on a journey for your own good – rethinking productivity, one week at a time.
Created via long-distance collaboration in makeshift home studios across the UK, US and Estonia, Week Nine is lockdown escapism for you and your headphones…a story within a story within a surreal reality.
It’s okay, drink the Kool-Aid.

A Fermynwoods Contemporary Art Homemakers commission, with support from Arts Council England and Cambridge Junction
Tickets are available as ‘Pay What You Can’ – the suggested price for this event is £5 – but there are a range of ticket prices so you can choose what you can afford from the options, including £0 as we want as many people as possible to access our Homemakers commissions.
We’ve also included a higher option for anyone who wants to take the opportunity to make a larger donation to our artists and organisations. How much you choose to pay is completely up to you, and every audience member will receive exactly the same content and experience.
All the money raised from ticket sales for this event will be split evenly with 50% going directly to the artist and 50% to help Fermynwoods Contemporary Art support life through art.
Homemakers Project Overview
Homemakers is a series of new commissions, where we invite our favourite artists and artistic partners to combine to create work at home, for an audience who are also at home.
We’re not pretending that all art can be experienced online just as satisfactorily as in person; but we want to demonstrate the innovation of artists who work all kinds of forms, by inviting them to respond to this very specific context. We want to bring contemporary new performance to audiences all over the world, in all its form-flexing, mind-expanding, surprising subversive brilliance.
