In a truly innovative experiment 26 writers will be taking to the streets of Derby and undertaking a series of secret tasks bringing them into direct interaction with the city of Derby. Producing images, words and sounds the participants will explore the city-spaces they walk through every day. The resulting trove of material will then be worked with by professional actors, resulting in a reactive performance, The City Staged, presented the very next day. This presentation will also form the launch our next year of activities.
WE WANT YOUR CITY WORDS …
Because of the small number of spaces, and because many of you are spread far and wide, we wanted to offer an exciting online aspect of the adventure to allow one and all to participate. On the 23rd of September we will be releasing the details of an online task for those unable to attend the event. This task will allow you to produce something that will be taken on as part of the City Staged source material, and of course we’d be delighted to see you at the performance and our exciting launch party.
As well as this chance to participate online, you will also be able to follow the city adventure through two of the participants who will be using social media to document their journey. Keep an eye on the TWP twitter account @TWPGoSee for more info on who to follow, and for Posterous aggregation.
