I Want to Blow Up the Palace of Holyroodhouse
Saturday 22nd March
Camden People’s Theatre, 58-60 Hampstead Road, London, NW1 2PY
I want to blow up the Palace of Holyroodhouse. However, I am frankly terrified of the consequences this would have on my life, and think it probably wouldn’t be worth it. Therefore, I’ve decided that I will instead, in a symbolic action, blow up a scale model of the Palace in the name of art. I’ll be conducting all my research about how to do it live and in public. Drop by to learn about explosives, about rage, about the steady erosion of civil liberties, and about the limits of art and activism.
Notes for Lawyers and Cops: (1) All the information I am accessing is to be used only for blowing up a small scale model of the Palace of Holyroodhouse in a safe and legal manner (2) I neither condone nor encourage the actual blowing up of actual public buildings, and will not be sharing my research with anyone who does in an encouraging way. (3) Any websites I link to here or on Twitter are for information or humour purposes only, should not be used for acts of terrorism, and can be found by a very basic Google search anyway. http://harrygiles.org/2013/10/09/i-want-to-blow-up-the-palace-research-day-1/
This research performance is happening in the foyer of the theatre before and after Daniel Bye and Company’s How to Occupy an Oil Rig. You should go to that too: http://www.cptheatre.co.uk/show/oil_rig.php#.UwiZp4X2308
