We are raising funds to bring ‘Metal Detectives’, a live public art performance, to the city of Plymouth which will be performed during Plymouth Art Weekender.
 
 
Metal Detectives is a public performance piece by developed by local artist, Elena Brake. Working in collaboration with a small team of emerging artists, Elena hopes to create a spectacle within the ordinary, urban landscape. The group of performers will investigate objects they come across while on a co-ordinated walk through the city. The performers will use magnets to test whether each object is magnetic, regardless of material. The audience are invited on this walk to experience the city in a completely new way.
 
The performance was first tested in Sefton Park, Liverpool – and a video was produced to document the piece. It is a light-hearted and engaging performance that will encourage the audience to reconsider their everyday surroundings.
 
Funds raised from this Crowdfunder will go towards the production of a film, produced by the Plymouth film company, Round One Films Ltd. Funds will also help to make the project larger and will help us to produce promotional materials and to support the production of a zine.
 
Any and all contributions to this project will help us to realise this piece to a high standard. The early career artists are each hoping to develop their practice and expand their portfolios.
 
The performance will happen on 23rd September, 2017, leaving the Sundial in Plymouth City Centre at 4pm.
