A play in of PLAYING UP will be presented by The Substation, Australia and Melbourne Fringe.
PLAYING UP is an intergenerational artwork exploring different ways of looking at the world. Based on Live Art themes and famous works, it takes the form of a game that kids and adults play together. Invent your own piece of Live Art and perform it.
Kids are explorers of the everyday. For them to light a match can be something extraordinary that needs focus and time and creates an experience. The same is true for everyone who practices Live Art.
“PLAYING UP offers the tools to take risks, wrest back agency and question power relationships. All while having fun and making art.” The Guardian
“I didn’t know playing a game could be art” – Oshin Biswas (age 10)
“…the most interesting family game I’ve played for a long time!” – Gini Simpson (parent and producer)
PLAYING UP has been created by Sibylle Peters of Theatre of Research and is a collaboration between LADA, Theatre of Research (Germany), and Tate Early Years and Family Programme, with the support of Best Biennial (Sweden), Live Art UK, CAPP and Goethe Institute.
PLAYING UP was launched at Tate Modern in April 2016 with a three-day public play-in and a one-day symposium.
