Eye, The Spy // Leeds Festival 2009
I developed a relational site-specific performance project to take to Leeds Festival, to roam the campsites from 11pm. Drawing influences from Lacan, Sartre, The Pied Piper, vaudeville and surrealism, we wanted to spectate the spectators (and also try to get people involved with the DJ stations which are effective in reducing crime at the festival by keeping people entertained in the twilight hours). A group of 8 versus 80,000 revellers was a tough task, but it was a very memorable experience for all!
Performers: Adam Young, Becki Griffiths, Marina Demetriadis, Liane O’Toole, Carrieanne Vivianette, with thanks to Sorrell Waldie.
