Word in Transit #6 Toy Story – event

Word In Transit on the Overground

Three Colts Lane, London E2 6JL, UK

Saturday 19 October, 4pm–4.30pm

“You’ve got a friend in me” ?

The characters in Toy Story have very distinct roles and personalities although they are bound together – from Woody plotting and staging the escape for their friends, with one member of the group taking control, to all of them cooperating together to hide whenever Andy arrives back home. ??

An overground train will be transformed by a group of Toy Story cladded artists. Each individual artist will work within the known theme, while the public receive and become a part of a shared moment. The relationship between interdependence and Toy Story’s narrative, of friendship, will be presented by the curator to the artists, the artists will be invited to respond.?

Word in Transit invites you to join the group on this journey on the overground. To either participate as an audience member, or to explore and embody a character from Toy Story. We are looking for artists who will perform pieces on the train; communicating directly, creatively challenging or playfully responding to the narrative/aesthetic from the Toy Story films. Championing low cost/d.i.y processes will require all costumes and props to be made either fully or mostly by the artist. ?

Meet at Bethnal Green Station at 4pm, travel on the overground to Wood street Station.
