Tonight we have been invited to join the company of Stoke Newington International Airport for
LIVE ART SPEED DATE!
The tea dance is ending in the Old Town Hall next door and the team are constructing a maze of antique polling booths for audiences to encounter a whirlwind of one on one performances.
The the words of STK INT AIRPORT:
Live Art Speed Date is an exploration and celebration of intimate exchange between Artist and audience. A diverse selection of innovative performance artists are invited to create and present a four minute one-on-one performance or “date”. The audience make their own journey through the dates, with opportunities to interact with each other and walkabout artists. This carefully curated event explores public and private behaviors creating a vibrant fairground of fragmented experiences, pushing the notion of interactive performance and audience/performer collaboration.
