PLAYING UP IS AN ARTWORK BY SIBYLLE PETERS EXPLORING THE POTENTIAL OF LIVE ART TO BRIDGE GENERATIONS AND SEE THE WORLD DIFFERENTLY. DRAWING ON LIVE ART THEMES AND KEY WORKS, PLAYING UP IS A GAME PLAYED BY KIDS AND ADULTS TOGETHER.


Kids, adults, families and friends are equally welcome! Follow the instructions, invent your own artwork and perform it.

“Kids are explorers of the everyday. For them to light a match can be something extraordinary that needs focus and time and creates an experience. The same is true for everyone who practices Live Art.” Sibylle Peters
