Information on the activity
PLAYING UP is a participatory project in public space that explores live art and its capacity to bridge the generational gap.
Turning food into clothing. Lying on the hood of cars. Dancing with animals. Getting into a ketchup and soya sauce fight. Inventing a new sport. Walking adults on a leash. Inspired by major themes and artworks, PLAYING UP is a game that brings together children and adults. Adapted from the original artwork created by Sybille Peters and the Live Art Development Agency, this Montreal version of the game features 36 artworks by world-renowned artists, in addition to a selection of 12 artworks by local artists. On either of the two sites, form a team, draw a card and slip into the shoes of an artist the time of a game.
A coproduction of the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership and LA SERRE arts vivants with the support of the Conseil des arts de Montréal and the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough.
