The Wizard of Oz [edited to tell the story supporting the research]
The art practice takes the form of guerrilla street theatre.
The guerrilla street performances were planned and developed in Spring-Summer 2015, the performances took place over one day in Hackney and London Fields, East London in August 2015. The film clips are titled as Episodes in order to emphasis the iterative nature of the street performances. Only Episodes with ethical approval from participants are included in the Collection.
The art practice adapts L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz because of the opportunities Oz presents to initiate and facilitate public discussions about power and conflict through the structure of a journey. For more information about the practice, see the Collection page.
