Video documentation of practice-led research project The Reasons in the Fens. The Reasons in the Fens was a public storytelling performance event with a focus on local water management issues. It was inspired by La Rasgioni, a traditional form of community conflict resolution from the Gallura region of Sardinia and takes the form of a ‘mock’ court, complete with judge, jury and storytelling witnesses, drawn from the local community. A key part of the event is the sharing of a meal by the audience, whilst the jury considers its ‘verdict’. La Rasgioni was witnessed by Wilson in Sardinia in October 2015 and was reimagined and adapted for use in the Cambridgeshire Fens as part of the DRY (Drought Risk and You) Project, part of the UKRI Drought and Water Scarcity Programme. This video documentation is of the second performance of The Reasons at Peterborough Museum on 1st December 2016.
