If you could time travel into the future and walk into a pub, what would you like to see? Robot bar staff, instant nostalgia or a new social Inn-vention? Join Cornwall’s Small Acts for a first taste of this brand new show.
Future Pub is a new live performance by Katie Etheridge and Simon Persighetti that debates and celebrates the power and potential of community whilst gathering a deeper understanding of what the pub of the future will look like. Conjuring the territories, atmospheres and eccentricities of a traditional local, the show incorporates film, live music, games and of course a time machine to transport audiences to the pub of the future!
Made with input from brewers, pub-goers and campaigners, Future Pub explores the enduring role of pubs in our lives, at a time when the future of so many hangs in the balance. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you may win a prize and you’ll never take pubs for granted again!
Katie Etheridge and Simon Persighetti (Small Acts) are artists and performance makers based in Cornwall, UK. They create live, often participatory performances and artworks that invite local, national and international audiences to investigate their own relationships with the places in which they live, work and play.
