Annie Saunders CURRENT

“The vignettes [presented in CURRENT], timed to play at the golden hour, are casual, edifying and candid, asking us to consider the overlapping landscapes of the cemented-over wetlands, the skyscraper canyons, the storm surges.”  –  Alexis Soloski, The New York Times

Winner of the 2021 Tribeca Festival Immersive Creative Nonfiction Award and the Tribeca X Award, CURRENT is a site-specific soundwalk though Lower Manhattan accessed via a custom website, using your own mobile device and headphones. CURRENT immerses participants using binaural sound, composition and environmental recordings to draw together a narrative that includes themes of water, time, construction, destruction, synchronicity, and resilience.

  • Duration: Approximately 60 minutes
  • Times: The soundwalk will start every half hour beginning at 5:30pm, with the last showtime at 8:30pm. Please plan to arrive and join the experience 10 minutes before the soundwalk begins, to ensure entry.
  • Please note: You will need your own mobile device and headphones for this experience and will use cellular data. Please make sure your phone is charged and both headphones (right and left) are functional.
  • Location: The 1.5 mile walk begins and ends in Zuccotti Park, Lower Manhattan. Look for signage in the park and scan the QR code to begin.
