DEFENCE TO FORBID
Defence to Forbid is a new genre of live art performance: a promenade oratorio exploring and sonically mapping the politics of Privately Owned Public Spaces (POPS) in London and the UK. This performance is a funeral procession of lost public spaces to privatisation, a ritual lament and claim for democratic rights.
