How does the city nest in your senses? Is it shaped by habit, honed through half-attention? Do you feel yourself a part of the shifting complexity...or stay safely within grids of expectation? Taking place within everyday spaces of central Coventry, this piece invites you to traverse the flows of the city, to notice how you simultaneously merge with, and leave traces. Enter secret vantage points and encounter the unexpected. The city never settles, nothing is built to last. You were here.
On the day of the performance you will be sent a message with the secret starting place. The experience will last approximately 80 minutes. Note that the piece will include both indoor and outdoor locations in central Coventry and will proceed rain or shine. Please dress for the weather. If you have special access needs please contact the organiser before booking. Suitable for people 16 years and older.
Commissioned by Sensing the City at Warwick University, with support from Coventry Artspace Partnerships, Central Taxis Coventry, and Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art.
Created by artists Carolyn Deby and Jia-Yu Corti
