The Guildhall Cells

Sold Out

Tickets: Pay What You Want, Free - £10

In the historic prison cells below Norwich Guildhall, electric animal-aerials live out their existence, trying to receive signals from the outside world, transmitting and imagining between themselves. This fragile species tries, fails and changes; playing at being trapped and playing at escaping.

Our relationship to ideas of isolation, autonomy and technological communication has complexified and gained layers of new meaning over the last year, and this work is a response to that situation.

Built of fragile materials and old technology, the animals behave unpredictably, travelling through the spaces and interacting, transmitting images from inside and outside the cells.

Small bubbles and family groups are invited one at a time to explore this strange, quietly chaotic installation of moving sculptures within the confined, charged atmosphere of the prison cells.

A Norfolk & Norwich Festival commission

A development of a work first commissioned by Westflügel Leipzig and Schaubude Berlin in 2020

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
