The Soundscapes of the York Mystery Plays

Mariana Lopez’ project researches the soundscapes of the actual locations in York where the plays were originally performed. She looks at the acoustics and sounds of the city where the waggons stopped and their effect on how audiences heard and reacted to them.  The research also covers some of the newer locations where waggon plays are now being performed. The website has links to recordings of people talking about their experience of performing on waggons in both old and new locations and, by contrast, in the static – or staged –  productions and of the effect of the many sounds of the city surrounding the plays in performance.
