For his second restaging of Notes on Protesting (2014) at the Whitechapel Gallery, British artist Peter Liversidge, invites adult choirs from London to restage his performance from May Day 2014. For the project, Liversidge held workshops with children from Marion Richardson Primary School over a 4 month period to encourage the children to express their views on community and the power of a collective voice. Drawing together these different choirs to sing, ‘No More Homework,’ ‘Our shoes are too tight’ and ‘Less trucks and cars. More chocolate bars!’ will echo the significance of a collective voice established by Liversidge and the children.
One final performance of the piece will take place on Thursday 4 June, 8pm at Whitechapel Gallery to celebrate the project and resulting exhibition in Galleries 5&6.
