my heart is hitchhiking down peachtree st

J.Fergus Evans

Fergus has lived in England for almost seven years. He hasn’t been back to his hometown in five.

my heart is hitchhiking down peachtree st, is a one-man show about living far away from home. It’s about the stories you tell people when they ask you when you’re from. It’s about learning that once you leave, you can’t go back.

Using animation, installation, live folk music, and spoken word, my heart is hitchhiking down peachtree st is about trying to make sense of where you come from when you’re very far from home.

J. Fergus Evans is a yarn-spinnin', boy-kissin' spoken word and performance artist. He was artist-in-residence for Contact's At Home project and was selected for Apples and Snakes' Incubate programme, a long-scale development programme for emerging spoken word artists. Fergus’s work focuses on the restaging spoken word using video, soundscaping and sculpture.
