SounDS EXQUISITE

THE HEAD, THE BODY, The Bottom bit!

The Beginning, The middle, the end…

Exquisite corpse is a game played by surrealists in the 1920s and it is a great device for collaboration and lateral thinking. Playable Streets uses this game as a leaping off point to create an interactive installation that allows the public to use the drawings of children to create new characters with real voices! Through a series of workshops we develop new characters and new narratives from the depths of children's imagination. We record the voices of the students to bring their work to life.
