A Secular Mystery Play in Brunswick SquareWednesday, 4 July, 2012
Saturday 14 July, 2.00 – 6.00pm. Brunswick Square, London WC1N
An echo of Bloomsbury’’s radical and creative heritage, the Bloomsbury Mystery Play will be a living tableaux of costume, pageantry and song conceived by artists J&K / Janne Schäfer and Kristine Agergaard with Neal Brown and Hilary Koob-Sassen taking place on and around a sculptural platform created by Danish artist FOS.
This event is organised by Camden Arts Centre in the spirit of Bruce Lacey’s ritual performance works of the 1980s and to accompany his exhibition.
As a theatrical form, mystery plays were traditionally used to embellish biblical stories but the Bloomsbury Mystery Play will narrate a more secular journey through ideologies of contemporary living; the rituals of daily life, our interactions with others and the possibilities for arranging the world around us. This is an eccentric celebration of the peculiar and the visionary: a platform for voices crying out how things might be.
No ticket required.
