Up My Street

1 - 2 May 2021

Step into augmented reality in this street art and performance trail, allowing digital dancers to climb and dance around the real streets and buildings of Brighton

Conceived and directed by Kwesi Johnson and created by digital technologists FENYCE, this mixed reality group experience transports audiences into digital worlds through the sounds of world champion beat boxer Hobbit and graffiti art from Scotty B/Brave Arts. Experienced through a smart phone, the trail presents themes around migration and culminates in a chance to use your phone like a spray can and create your own virtual street art together, interacting with other audience members and the real world around you.

Each performance is for a socially distanced audience group of 5 people and is led by Kwesi. This is a walking experience and you will cover approximately 1 mile of distance over 40 minutes.

The smartphone will be provided but you are encouraged to bring your own set of headphones.



With generous support from University of Portsmouth
