TEN ROOMS WITH A VIEW marks the first part of a Parade for Peckham research project by the artist Adam James in association with MOCA London.

Performances by ROOM:
10:00 to 16:00, MOCA London, 113 Bellenden Rd, London SE15 4QY.
Limited places booking essential.

To book tickets:

There will be also special group run of ROOM for participants of the first run between 21:00 and 22:00 at MOCA London, booking not needed.

ROOM is a story-telling experience for one (or more) blindfolded person(s). It’s entirely improvised each time in response to the audience’s imagination. Amongst many other things, it has been described as virtual reality without a headset, an imagination massage, a collective lucid dream and purposeful daydreaming.
Co-created by the audience and the narrators, it’s a live manifestation of collaboration and co-authorship.

Performance by Mark Wayman:
17:00 – 18:00, starting at the eastern mouth of River Peck
(Google maps 51.457569, -0.056059), Peckham Rye Common, SE15 3UA.
Join Mark Wayman as he walks the length of the river Peck in the heart of the Rye. Wayman takes as his starting point the fabric, function and significance of a chosen location, in this instance The River Peck. Through intense verbal descriptions, he spins an elaborate alternative version. The artist’s meticulous monologues will reveal hidden histories, disturbing our perception of what may previously have seemed familiar.

Workshop by Adam James:
18:30 – 20:00, meeting at Cafe On The Rye, Straker’s Road
Peckham Rye Common, London, SE15 3UA.

Adam James will lead a playful workshop connecting material gathered through the day’s prior performances, exploring collective unconscious movement and ritual creation.

Further info:
Throughout this summer across Southwark James will host a number of artist led events including artist talks, workshops, participatory performances, walks, float-making, Nordic Larps and story-telling exploring themes relating to ‘truth’ and group engagement as means to unleash collective unconscious.

This event is supported through Arts Council England grants for the arts.
