Annie Saunders CURRENT

As the world begins its emergence from the confines of the pandemic, interdisciplinary artist Annie Saunders invites you to experience CURRENT, a soundwalk through Lower Manhattan. Using your own mobile device and headphones, CURRENT immerses participants in both the history and the present-day tales of an often-overlooked part of the city. Using binaural sound, composition and site-specific recordings to draw together a narrative that includes themes of water, time, construction, destruction, synchronicity, and resilience. Guided on a 1.5 mile walk from Zuccotti Park to One New York Plaza and back, passing such notable landmarks as Trinity Church, the New York Stock Exchange, and Battery Park, audience members will experience unique stories and magical moments that only this beautifully complex city can produce.

  • 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.
  • Location: The walk begins and ends in Zuccotti Park, Lower Manhattan. Look for signage in the park and scan the QR code to begin.
