I Get Up
23 May 2019 – 26 May 2019
I GET UP is a video and performance exhibition involving unhoused clients at First Base Day Centre, RAPT Theatre, Dr Roberta Piazza (Sussex University) and RBD Design.
Over three months, the group shared stories, food and thoughts about the world in order to create a series of ﬁlms which are fragmentary, honest and revealing.
This exhibition includes videos, writing and photography created during the process and responds to the participants’ experience of living in Brighton and Hove.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS
RAPT (Research, Artistry, Participation, Theatre) was set up by Emma Higham and Dr Lisa Peck to create socially engaged, high quality performance projects, facilitating the coming together of artists, researchers and communities. RAPT makes work which challenges audiences to see the extraordinary in the everyday and searches for new models; bringing people together in unique collaborations.
