give what you can, take what you need

This performance intervention, originally commissioned by the Nuffield and Manchester's Futuresonic Festival, playfully explores notions of community and conversation through gift exchange. Passers-by were greeted by a large dinner table, where various other members of the public may be seated at any one time. Newcomers were invited to take part by accepting a gift, entering into a relationship with the gathering for as long or as short a time as they chose.
