Live06 – Clap Your Hands for Sean

clap.jpg{from the sidelines} is a new commission by Sean Hawkridge for Liverpool Live, the live art strand of Liverpool Biennial 2006 coordinated by Bluecoat.

*** I’d like to invite you to participate ***

The work will take place in Liverpool City Centre this Saturday 28th October at 16.00, at the bottom of Bold Street in the area between the old Lyceum Post Office and Waterstones bookshop.

The performance will involve a number of people gathering in the space at 4pm and on cue bursting into spontaneous applause for a couple of minutes before dissipating back into the crowds.

The work is intended to be subtle and spontaneous – lifting peoples heads a little, cheering them on from the sidelines, like the Dads at all those football matches, like the end of the marathon, like the lap of honour…

You’re invited to be one of the clapping crowd

The work should only take 15 minutes of your time and you won’t be put on the spot in any way.

If you’d like to be involved please reply to this email registering your attendance.

I really appreciate your help

Please forward this to any individuals/mailing lists as appropriate. Apologies for any cross posting.
