Banksy (or Blanksy)

Inspired by the works and political views of graffiti artist Banksy, Banksy (or Blanksy) is an installation performance merging digital music, modern contemporary dance, moving image sequences and interactive projections.

Imagine a city where graffiti wasn’t illegal. A city where everybody could draw whatever they liked, where every street was awash with a million colours and little phrases. Where standing at the bus stop was never boring, a city that felt like a party where everyone was invited. Imagine a city like that…..and stop leaning against the wall – it’s wet’. Banksy

Performed by local dancers from The Remix integrated youth performance company, DYD, Train Hard Parkour, Weymouth Dance Studio and Weymouth College Performing Arts students.
Artistic Director: Michaela Shaw
Music Producer: Andy Cleeton of biglittlemusic
