give what you can, take what you need - Wunderbar festival, Newcastle

Sat, 7 Nov 2009, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Sun, 8 Nov 2009, 1:00pm - 4:00pm

give what you can, take what you need is a playful exploration of notions of community and conversation through gift exchange. Drawing on Rajni's research projects into gift-giving as intervention in public space, this interactive performance is designed to take place in busy communal areas.  Passers-by are greeted by a large dinner table, where various other members of the public may be seated at any time.  Newcomers are invited to take part by accepting a gift, entering into a relationship with the gathering for as long or as short a time as they choose. 

give what you can, take what you need will be performed on 7th and 8th November in Eldon Square shopping centre, outside John Lewis. This is a free event.
