This Now or Never Land
30th June – 2nd July, 2011
This Now or Never Land is an audio and installation based performance that takes place on the train journey between Queens Road Peckham Station and London Victoria. We encourage the audience to take in the city through new eyes and ears. This particular route gives panoramic views of the city’s skyline, but also offers the observer close-ups of the geographic fabric of South London. We take inspiration from the story of Peter Pan and the fantastical world of Neverland and mix it with the everyday. We use visual and sound images to reflect on the ideas of time, memory, journey and how London is full of Lost Boys from all over the world.
Do you know how to get to Neverland? Have you got your ticket?
