We’re so excited to announce our next three projects for Compass Festival, coming to Leeds this May and June. Join us for an arcade game about living with anxiety, a sonic experience underneath a bridge and Leeds’ smallest gay bar.
Anxiety Arcade by Closed Forum
Anxiety Arcade is a full-sized arcade machine exploring themes of anxiety and isolation. A love letter to 80s pop culture and classic video games, Anxiety Arcade is a digital space that allows you to reset and take a break from everything in your world.
24 – 30 May from 12pm – 7pm at Trinity Kitchen, 27 Albion St, Leeds, LS1 5ER
One in, One out: Leeds’ Smallest Gay Bar by Lucy Hayhoe
A playful installation for an audience of one. One in, One out: Leeds’ Smallest Gay Bar is an exclusive club featuring all the camp, glitz, glamour and dodgy disco lighting you’ve been missing during the past few months, but this time it’s all for you.
28, 29 and 30 May from 12pm – 7pm on Wharf Street, Leeds, LS2 7EQ
The Ballad of Crown Point Bridge by Amy Sharrocks
The Ballad of Crown Point Bridge is a sonic artwork created with the people and water of Leeds. Activated by movement sensors, The Ballad of Crown Point Bridge pulls together words, water and echoes to try to negotiate a different social contract between the environment, the city and its inhabitants.
7 – 27 June from 6am – 10pm at Crown Point Bridge (Leeds Dock side), LS10 1HG
