COLCHESTER [UK]: Playing With Space

A weekend of free film and performance showing how urban space can invite, provoke and repress playful and performative behaviour.

The work on show in Playing With Space looks at how this performance potential has been explored by artists, free-runners, base-jumpers, high-wire experts, and film directors. considering performance in a variety of ways.
As well as the films on show in the auditorium, there will be two artists’ performances taking place around the building: Alternative Site Survey by Holly Rumble and Practising firstsite by urban (col)laboratory.
Curated by Associate Artist Lawrence Bradby and firstsite volunteer Tim Phillips.
