How To Start Your Own Performance Space


Thanks to Daniella Val Genz for making this real for me. I had heard about it but never registered it as a real thing beyond “more London news” in my head. Point is, anyone can make things happen. If you want to do it badly enough, do it, and work it out as you do. Learn in the doing.

LOCK UP PERFORMANCE ART – A performance series curated by Aaron Williamson (2011-2012) Jordan McKenzie, kate Mahony and Rachel Dowle 2011 – 2013 LUPA ENDS IN JUNE 2013 WITH LUPA20

A grim little lock-up garage, the size of a single car, on a Housing Estate in deepest Bethnal Green is the venue for a series of ‘pop-up’ performances to be staged once-a-month on a Friday night.

The audience assembles in the Car Park and the event ‘pops-up’ promptly at 8pm, finishes at 9, and reconvenes in the nearby Approach Tavern.
