Launch and Symposium: PLAYING UP - Live Art for Kids & Adults


Make clothes out of food, lie on top of cars, dance with animals, remote control your parents!

PLAYING UP is an artwork by Sibylle Peters exploring the potential of Live Art to bridge generations.  Drawing on key Live Art themes and seminal works, PLAYING UP takes the form of a game played by adults and kids together.

The PLAYING UP game will be published in April and launched with a three day mass ‘play-in’ for kids and adults in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern, followed by a major symposium with leading UK and international thinkers and practitioners in the field. 

PLAYING UP is produced and published by LADA, FUNDUS THEATER / Theatre of Research (Germany), Tate Early Years and Family Programme (UK), Best Biennial (Sweden) and Live Art UK, with the support of the Goethe-Institut London and the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP).
