MARKET LECTURES PROGRAMME
'Making Mischief in Public' by Antoinette Burchill
Phd School of the Arts
Antoinette has performed at street arts festivals across the UK: from Derby Festé, to Bath’s Bedlam Fair, to Kendal Mintfest, to a Banquet Tour of Cumbria. In her lecture Antoinette will talk about how she developed The Wizard of Oz as a walkabout street performance, and the tactics she uses to create a theatre on the street where none really exists. She states there is a delight in performing to a street audience who is expectant – waiting around for you to do something interesting, but there is more mischief to be made by guerrilla street performances. By seeking out, and then surprising an unsuspecting audience.
