Fallen Wall Arts

If I Could Re-write the Alphabet...

####In Brief

I will love you… to death


####Who are they?

Jack Coverdale is the founder/director of Fallen Wall, a contemporary arts company, specialising in performance work and based in Preston, UK. Interested in the live-ness of performance and what distinguishes it from television and film, the work is never polished, high-tech or big budget and strives to expose artifice instead.

Jack is obsessed with failure; and couldn’t escape it if he tried.


I am in love with you. 
So in love it hurts.
Do you love me like I love you; like in the films?
I need you.
I cannot be without you.
I will follow you; to venice, to the top of the eiffel tower.
I will hold you in my arms, in the rain and the moonlight and we will kiss for the last time.



####Works Ahead: Interactions

A journey around the hidden spaces of a theatre - one monumental installation, three intimate encounters…

October 2011 saw an extraordinary coming together of over 30 artists in a day-long maze of performance: emergency accommodation.  Two whole buildings resonated with small exchanges, moving installations and intriguing conversations, punctuated by naked encounters and full-blown performances. Recapturing that spirit of adventure, Works Ahead invites a group of the most intriguing emergency accommodation artists to develop and present their work in a takeover of Contact Space 1.
