Procession starts outside Moonshot Centre, Fordham Park, New Cross SE14 6LU

Saturday 30 September 2017

2:30pm-5pm

Silencer is a silent march formed by you, your friends, colleagues, family and neighbours resulting in an art installation built in the heart of your community.

Join us for a moment of quiet celebration and witness your local shopping street transformed into a sea of blank placards as individuals march anonymously in support of their own causes and personal crusades. Centered around unity, censorship and togetherness, Silencer provides a platform which will enable everyone to have a voice and tell their stories or the stories of their friends and loved ones. The final installation will reveal the many contributed campaign slogans and stories.

Part performance, part exhibition, the aim of this project is to raise awareness of the political, cultural and individual challenges faced by local people living and working in your area, giving a voice to the many unsung heroes who have helped shape it.  Silencer is a deliberate act to create something outwardly positive and to share our histories, aspirations and optimism for a better future.

We have seen a lot of people recently on marches across London, for many different reasons.  If you were going to march to tell the world about something…what would it be?

To participate and donate your personal crusade in advance keep an eye on Silencer's Facebook page for workshop opportunities or submit yours anonymously in advance of the collective march.

Saturday 23 September 2017

7:30pm & 9:15pm

A CIRCULATE AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT EVENT.

A House is not a Home is specifically designed to be played in a non-theatrical space, in a little house structure placed in isolation in an outdoor public space. The plot is simple: two people observe the interior of a house from the garden. They have to share some bad news with the residents, but the image of apparent happiness in the interior will make it hard to achieve this goal.

The audience listen in on the action through headphones, transforming them from spectators into active witnesses to an unfolding situation. The observers may feel the isolation of the house as they are able to spy on the lives of its residents. A single word can disrupt the order of events and transform a peaceful home into an inhospitable place.

Please visit Bell Square's website here for more information.

Life Boat proved to be a summer 2016 favourite for Circulate, appearing at each of the network locations and our Satellite locations, too.  We are so excited to see it return at our new Satellite Location, Fairlop Fair

A participatory installation... Rock gently, turn slowly, listen to the alphabet... Bang the drum, rattle the chain, rock the boat... File your Forecast for the Future.

The Life Boat voyage has taken in over 70 locations around the UK and seen over 10000 participants through the hammocks. Hundreds across London found an antidote to the hustle and bustle of the city on The Slowest Ride on Earth.
