As part of his new commission for The Promise at Arnolfini, Jeremiah Day will realise a performance at the junction 2 roundabout of the M32, at 12 noon on Saturday 19 July.
His project Awake and You’re in Motion (Response to Brief from Bristol Radical Historian) is inspired by events that surrounded the urban redevelopment of Bristol and the experience of those people who lost their homes to make way for progress. Day uses spoken word and movement improvisation to evoke these past events and how they relate to us today. This event is part of Jeremiah Day’s Awake and You’re in Motion (Response to Brief from Bristol Radical Historian), newly commissioned for The Promise.
The Promise is an exhibition project that focuses on the relationship between a city’s design and the hopes and ambitions of its residents. Exhibitions and events will take place in the Arnolfini galleries and across the city of Bristol throughout the summer.
