BOOM! BANG! SPLAT! CRUNCH!
A city of cardboard and glue and glitter! A city of every building you hate! A city that you can destroy!
This is a participatory installation jumping-up-and-down sparkleshow about anger and urban planning. Together we build the worst city in the world and ritually destroy it as though we were children again. Maybe we are. In the face of sprawling regeneration, stunt architecture, entertainment megacomplexes and luxury housing, we will howl our loss through a plasticine pummelling and build a new city in a scream.
CRUNCH! SPLAT! BANG! BOOM!
SMASHY SMASHY is a participatory installation performance, lasting from 2 hours to as long as you like. It can be performed in any space with a passing audience, and is particularly well-suited to venue foyers and outdoor festivals (weather permitting). Participants make cardboard models of buildings which make them angry, and join together to destroy them at the climax. It requires:
- At least 10 x 10 feet of playing space
- A table
- Assistance in gathering together enough spare cardboard boxes to last the length of the performance
- A budget for children’s craft materials
- Admire a cardboard city
