Bodies In Urban Spaces - Review

This was an interesting one. We all met at the little shopping parade between New England Street and Preston Circus at 11pm on Friday night. all the neighbours were peering out the window wondering what was happening. What followed was an imaginative if surreal walk down through the North Lanes.

It was like a cross between graffiti and free running. Every now and then we would stop and look at the performers who had thrown/heaped/wedged themselves into the environment somehow. they were hanging from roofs, poking out of basements, wedged up behind lamp posts and bundled into doorways like a pile of brightly coloured charity collection bags. How they got in and out of some of the situations, I will never now.
