Event description

Description

Coventry...England...Britain. On the edge of the Atlantic. Not Europe...and not-not Europe. Planet Earth. Burning up. Somewhere in this mess of roads, construction site optimism and hyped-up fast moving tunes, fast food, slow decline, urban wasteland and screen swipe seduction, retail stupor-uber, zero hours, no time left. The vegans and petrol guzzlers are taking a stand. Can we dance the vitality of a wild planet even as it is dangerously altered by human technologies? By walking/moving through the urbanwild of Coventry, can humans begin to sense their own profound entanglement? urbanflows proposes a hybrid ecosystem, highlighting cycles of carbon (in the making of concrete; the burning of fossil fuels; the metabolisms of plants and creatures), and the meshed movements of air, water, mobile phones, machines, and living things. The wildness is mutating fast, but maybe not fast enough. The seduction of code/space, the cloud, the network...these condition us to stay locked-in. Come on a journey through the messy real and remember your place in wildness...

urbanflows: entangled in the grain of worlds, becoming is an audience experience that journeys through the city of Coventry, with elements of performance, installation, sound, video, and words scattered throughout the everyday spaces passed through. Audience size is limited and tickets must be booked at least four hours in advance. If you have one, please bring your smart phone, charged and with data. You will receive the secret starting location and instructions by text and email 24 hours before (or on the day of the performance for late bookings). The work will proceed rain or shine. You are advised to wear comfortable footwear for walking and dress for the weather conditions. Bring hope.


urbanflows: entangled in the grain of worlds, becoming is a sirenscrossing production. It was commissioned by Sensing the City (AHRC-funded/University of Warwick); lottery-funded by Arts Council England; and supported by Artspace Coventry, The Pod/Food Union, Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art, The Herbert Art Gallery.


FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Suitable only for people 12 years and older.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There will be parking and transport options within easy walking distance from the secret starting point.


Does the event involve audience walking?

Yes, members of the audience will need to walk at a gentle pace for approximately 45 minutes in total. This will be broken up with pauses and several short stops and so not involve continuous effort.

What can I bring into the event?

Ideally, try to carry as little as possible (a bottle of water would be a good idea) and remember to dress for the weather conditions.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No need for a printed ticket; your name will be ticked off of a list at the event.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

If you are unable to attend you may pass the registration and secret starting location to another person, making sure that they receive all information about the piece prior to their arrival. It is very important that they understand the advance instructions to audience. They should explain who they are replacing when being signed-in at the door.


What happens if I don't have a smart phone?

Bringing a smart phone is relevant for people who tend to have them and use them regularly. There will be a different focus for people without smart phones – in either case, the piece will be interesting and relevant for everyone.
