Play Moves

Surrender yourself to the sublime art of play.

In the tradition of RMXTV and The Storytellers: Next Chapter, MoB is once again inviting the community to break the boundaries of audience and artist with our largest participatory exhibition to date, Play Moves.

Bringing together a collection of local and national participatory artists, we are inviting people of all ages and abilities to surrender themselves to the sublime art of play. Here you will dance, weave and move your way through six large scale installations where every action you take makes the art around you grow, change and come alive.

Experience analogue technology by weaving through a mega looms’ warp or weft (Slow Art Collective), then step into the future as your physical and digital world morph into one mixed reality (Sai Karlen). Time-warp into a subverted office of the 80s to find a hidden party and jiving pot plants (Counterpilot), explore a sound interactive environment (Tara Pattenden), enter a technicolour party (UnitePlayPerform) and embrace yourself within soft cocooned sculptures (Michelle Vine).

Explore a series of co-creation spaces that present the unexpected, encourage touch, move the mind and remind us play is discovery and for everyone with low and high sensory experiences.

Play Moves places you at the heart of creative expression and cultural exchange by transforming you from spectator to contributor, inviting you to connect and learn from those around you.

It’s good to play.
