Phil Smith wears many hats. He is a playwright, performer, activist, researcher, writer and radical walker. His work uses walking, site-specific performance and mythogeography to encourage people to burrow beneath the official and the obvious. His most recent work includes The Pattern, “a handbook for exploration, embodiment and art making in strange times” produced in collaboration with artist Helen Billinghurst, and Bonelines, a “dark novel set in the 'Lovecraft Villages' of Devon” inspired by Phil and collaborator Tony Whitehead’s disparate discoveries during a series of ‘hyper-sensitised’ walks in the area.
