Description

The Old Paddling Pool Site - Millfields Park

The Cini-Theatre is envisaged as an installation which will transform the site of the Old

Paddling Pool at Millfields Park into a dual function pop-up; a cinema and open air theatre for, a day during the month of August.

The Old Paddling pool, which has been disused for several years, already has an amphitheatre like quality which lends itself to the creation of a stage.

It is intended to make a place that will play host to the work of local filmmakers and performers and be somewhere the diverse, Clapton community can engage in a shared experience. The Cini at the Old Paddling Pool will be a testbed project for a process that could be rolled out across various sites in London.

Programme

The Big Build - Morning and Afternoon

Over the course of a day visitors will be invited to take part in a Community Build to create the stage. Support will be provided by Studio Aki, Rara and CoDb all of whom have experience in designing and building temporary structures. The intention is to pre-fabricate some elements in the Rara workshop to simplify the process once on site.

Local Voices

Spoken Word - Punctuating The Build

Throughout the day artists and storytellers will be invited perform on the evolving theatre construction.

Filmmakers - Early Evening

Short and Micro films from local filmmakers will be shown as it begins to get dark.

The Big Film – Late Evening

The big film will be an open air screening of the classic London film My Beautiful Laundrette.
