Translation, Please!

Three participatory happenings. Greater London, April 2013.

Wednesday evolved around "Self-Translation": inviting people to express themselves. Participants wrote any word that they believed described themselves on a piece of paper and stuck it on our bench. They were then invited to perform it with a simple action in any way they liked in the chalk circle. The actions were recorded and at the end a video was posted on the Spindrift Facebook page and Youtube Stream under the dazzling tunes of Duran Duran

Friday's final happening was "Cozy Multilingual Translation." Tea and cake were offered as well as instant fancy accessories for participants, while exploring multilingual translations from dictionaries and playing around words, meaning and context.

Street performances that blend and bend the boundaries between spectator and a performer, and invite the audience to investigate their own identities through simple games.
