Hackney Live returns

8 February 2014

Hackney Live is returning in February with a feast of acrobatics, dance and theatre – shaped and directed by audiences via social media.

Hackney Live

The interactive event, supported by Arts Council England, brings together three top companies for exclusive live-streamed performances that will showcase the online creativity of budding artistic directors in Hackney and beyond:

• Mimbre – 13th Feb are producing Time, a piece that aims to explore one of humankind’s most complex questions: “What is Time?”

• Arcola Theatre – 23rd Feb are staging an ambitious interactive performance with a cast of over 45 young people. Exploring the relationship between performer and audience, the production will pose questions to the physical audience, plus those watching in two public screenings and online.

• East London Dance – 25th Feb are set to challenge perceptions of young people in Hackney to create ‘Dance Unleashed’ – an outdoor performance on a Hackney estate using material from audiences on social media about life in Hackney.
