Cityread 2016: Stories from the Streets
As part of London’s Cityread festival, immerse yourself in the world of Ten Days, the gripping political thriller by Gillian Slovo. “Stories from the City” sees the creation of a ‘police control centre’ within the gallery space where visitors can interact with extracts taken from the first 72 hours of the Ten Days audiobook. Content is ‘triggered’ by placing evidence relating to each scene onto a control desk panel, generating audio and visual cues. A second area of the installation, modelled in part on the wooden hoardings that covered up broken shop windows in the 2011 London riots, will encourage visitors to the gallery to contribute their own responses to the book and its themes.
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Level 5, 107 Charing Cross Road
