'SURVIVAL' a DIY4 project - Call for Participants

‘Survival’ is a six-day nomadic workshop moving from the Sussex downs to the London streets, whilst penniless and sleeping outdoors. The first two days will be workshops in the rural environment exploring primitivism, whilst foraging for food. On moving into London, the outcomes of the workshops will form street actions responding to the context of the city. The focus will be on the activity, development and survival of the group, not the production of performances for passers by. Rather this artistic activity is a way to focus reflection on the activities in general, and mainly as a constituent part of the proposed fundamental needs: 1) Full stomach 2) Community 3) Art.

Led by Orion Maxted, artist and member of the transdisciplinary collective protoPLAY, and Al Paldrok, artist and member of the Estonian performance group Non Grata. They have been collaborating and performing alongside each other since 2004.
