Adur Festival Launch Event: A Voyage Around My Bedroom
Intrepid journeys. Exploration on a micro-scale. An entrance. An invitation.
Come and celebrate the start of 16 days of arts activity throughout Adur and this year’s theme of Place with a grand exploration of all things seemingly ordinary and everyday. Experience your local area like never before.
A free-standing, 3 metre, weatherproof perspex cube, containing the furniture and paraphernalia of an ordinary bedroom. Ordinary objects, which would be unremarkable in their usual home, but in outdoor spaces, will take on a surreal, simple elegant beauty.
With the aid of a guide, audience members can voyage around this room in the manner of a grand explorer.
Eric MacLennan has a wealth of experience in creating participatory, inclusive, interactive work for all ages.
Co-commissioned by Applause, Fuse Medway Festival and Gulbenkian bOing! International Family Festival specially for outdoor events. It also received the Glastonbury Arts Commission.
