Smash It Up
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Originally inspired by the demolition of the Chartist Mural in Newport, South Wales, Smash it Up explores the destruction of art, culture and public space. Beginning as a performance lecture, and using performance art and physical theatre it explores the historical acts of cultural destruction by fanatics, institutions and by artists themselves. Smash it Up is an engaging and poignant theatre show developed on the streets and around the building sites of a city in transition, a city like any other in the UK. Furthermore Smash it Up asks what else is in danger of being destroyed.
