Live Art Development Agency PLAYING UP

Sat 19 Nov, 11am–4pm

For kids aged 6 years and up, and their adults.


PLAYING UP is an artwork by Sibylle Peters, exploring the potential of Live Art to bridge generations. Drawing on Live Art themes and key works, PLAYING UP takes the form of a game played by adults and kids together. Kids, adults, families and friends are all welcome.

Make clothes out of food, remote control your parents,
dance with animals, search for miracles, build
what-happens-next-machines! 

This public Play-In is an energetic and enjoyable game that involves kids and their adults working together as a team to complete activities and tasks to create their own work of Live Art. Activities last between 20 and 60 minutes and players can choose to do one or all of the artworks available throughout the duration of the event.

 

“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.” – Sibylle Peters

“PLAYING UP offers the tools to take risks [...] while having fun and making art.” – The Guardian

“I didn’t know playing a game could be art” – Oshin Biswas (age 10)

PLAYING UP is a collaboration between LADA, Theatre of Research (Germany), Tate Early Years and Family Programme, Best Biennial (Sweden) and Live Art UK, with the support of the Goethe Institute.
