PLAYING UP is an artwork by Sibylle Peters, exploring the potential of Live Art to bridge generations. Drawing on Live Art themes and seminal works, PLAYING UP takes the form of a game played by kids and adults and together.

Join us for a special Cambridge Junction play-in of PLAYING UP.  You can come as teams of families or friends and or on your own. Follow the instructions, invent your own piece of Live Art and perform!

“Kids are explorers of the everyday. For them to light a match can be something extraordinary that needs focus and time and creates an experience. The same is true for everyone who practices Live Art.”
Sibylle Peters
