Society of Friends

Research output: Non-textual formPerformance


Uninvited Guests performed Society of Friends 4 times as part of Theaster Gates' Sanctum, contributing 4 hours to the 552 hours of continuous sound by performers, musicians and bands. Programmed by MAYK this participatory performance was a collaboration with Bristol band Oh, The Guilt.

Sanctum was a remarkable structure that arose from within the bombed-out remains of Temple Church in Bristol. For 24 days, 24 hours a day, the site was transformed into an intimate place of listening, in which to hear the city like never before.

Entrance to Sanctum was free and the programme was secret. See website for further info on Theaster Gates' first public project in the UK, produced by Situations, as part of Bristol 2015 European Green Capital:
