Public Performance: Nuffield Artists Summer School 2010

Presented by Nuffield Theatre Lancaster and taking place at the Storey Creative Industries Centre and in the streets of Lancaster

Ghosting Lancaster

Imagine walking through a film, but it’s happening on the streets you live in – it’s a film without cameras.

Come and see the results of this year's summer school, led by Bristol-based sound artist Duncan Speakman and Paul Clarke from performance company Uninvited Guests. Over this week Paul and Duncan are delivering a 6-day school exploring how mobile technologies in performance can reframe and fictionalise real spaces.

The group are creating a mobile performance that will be integrated into the streets of Lancaster, subtly shifting the behaviours there, rather than taking over. Duncan and Paul are collaborating with the workshop participants and local residents to create an archaeology of the recent past, present day and future of the Lancaster area.

On the final day, Friday 6th Aug, you are invited to listen (via headphones) and witness the fruits of their labour in a performance of sorts in Lancaster city centre. The nature and location of the presentation is yet to be decided… all we know now is that at a specified place between 2pm and 4pm, something will happen! If you are intrigued by the process and interested in the outcome, keep those hours free and we’ll keep you updated throughout the week and inform you of final details.

This performance is free but you must sign up in advance. Audience capacity is limited to 20.
