Artists + Activity (subject to change)

Aidan Strudwick | Human Mini-Golf
Like mini-golf but fun for a change.

Alex Bradley + Bill Leslie | COME AS YOU ARE (guerrilla mix 1.0)
Surtitling the public’s personal sense of expression — a playful set of ‘in the moment’ incidents.

Ali Wilson + Jessica Gibson | Pair of Pears
We are a pair of Pears and we are looking for each other. 3—2—1—GO!

Charlotte CHW | Caution: Falling… (no longer appears)
Falling isn’t a work of art but nor is it a crime. People are doing it in public every day. We just choose not to see it.

Dominique Baron-Bonarjee | Collapse Manchester
A “slow-mob” exploring the pace of the city through the speed of the body.
Call for participants: we’re looking for brightly coloured slow-mobbers.

Elena Koukoli + Andreas Papapetrou | Out of Thin Air
An unexpected performance exploring emptiness and excess — imaginative, meditative, provoking and joyful.

Full Circle Arts + Playfuel | Box Society
A game about our society, the pressure to fit in and the hurdles we face navigating our daily lives with different means and abilities.

Instant Dissidence | Dancing With Strangers: From Calais to England
A choreographic act of border transgression: dance with a resident from ‘The Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais, in a virtual dance making connection across borders.

Jin Bells | Head In Hole 2016
A pointless body, a meaningless action, a nonsensical intervention into the city…

Nathaniel Mason | Occupied
Dying, desperate, gagging, bursting. This archive of public convenience is made by the people for the people.

Output Arts | Running with Scissors
The ultimate in hazardous track games.

Using humour and a sense of the absurd, a collective of women who identify as older, set about disrupting the flow of public spaces.

There There | Text HOME
A durational invasion of immigration advice.

un-earthed collective | Inflated Hazard — dicing with dystopia
Roll the giant inflatable dice — dice with dystopia and explore the hazards of our times.

Vivian Chinasa Ezugha | Because of hair; the dichotomy of culture and identity
I am not historical, I am not futuristic, I am not the old nor am I the new. I am but an object made from human hair. My purpose is to disturb, to interrupt your contemplation and seduce your vision; so that I become an image of your imagination.
