Next weekend there’s  free interactive art thing happening, and it’s set among the Barbican Highwalks, that optimistic, or infuriatingly complex, set of elevated pedestrian passages in the City of London.

Satellites is a new performance for the Barbican Highwalks created by Andy Field in collaboration with performers from Guildhall School’s Performance and Creative Enterprise programme, and commissioned by the Barbican and the Museum of London.

In it, the walkways and spaces stand in for the whole city of London, imagined through a constellation of intimate encounters with over a dozen young artists, each of whom has their own story of the city to share.

Audience members are invited to wander across this space, seeking out performers and hearing what they have to tell them.

Satellites telescopes together past, present and future into a fractured portrait of London as a city that is at once real and imagined, vast and intimate, as precarious as its inhabitants and as concrete as the Highwalks themselves.

The performance starts at 5pm on both Sat 17th March and Sun 18th March.

Ticketholders may arrive at any point between 5pm and 7pm. Last entry is at 7pm and any uncollected tickets may be made available as returns.

To book tickets, go here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
