We See Fireworks at PS122

Helen Cole’s We See Fireworks which enjoyed a fantastic run at the Barbican as part of Spill Festival earlier in the year is on it’s way to PS122 in the heart of the famous city, and are lucky enough to be joined by our good friends Action Hero who will be performing Watch Me Fall.

We’ve been raving about We See Fireworks throughout the past year, but for those of you who haven’t heard the name then here’s the info:

With support from the British Council, Performance Space 122 brings 3 companies, Inbetween Time Productions, Action Hero and curious, across the pond for a taste of the UK's hottest contemporary performance experiences. 

Part installation, part performance archive of audience voices, We See Fireworks is a curated collection of memories of past performances or performative moments whispered softly into the darkness. They talk of religious ceremonies, accidents, lovers' meetings, loss, homesickness, adolescence, fairgrounds, car parks, fetish clubs and school halls. Articulated by strangers, these words are viral, searing into the consciousness, until the deepest memories become yours.

'Quite how vivid performance can be is demonstrated exquisitely in We See Fireworks’  Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The installation is open at PS122 in New York from Saturday, June 4 - Saturday, June 11 from the hours of 2 - 6:30pm / 7 - 9pm daily.
The installation is closed on Monday, June 6.

If you would like to add your voice to this growing collection, opportunities for individual recordings are available June 4, 5, 7, 8 between 4:30 - 6:30pm & 7 - 9pm.
