Date uploaded: June 1, 2015

This summer Eastside Projects and Roger Coward re-visit his 1975 Artist Placement Group project in Birmingham. Focusing on Small Heath as part of the Government’s Inner Area Study, the exhibition of original material includes the artist’s film ‘The Most Smallest Heath in the Spaghetti Junction’, plus a new artist’s book, a symposium ‘The Studio in Society’ 4 July, and a revival of two plays devised and performed in Digbeth in 1975.

The revival of these two plays is produced by Coward, and Directed by Frances Viner, who was part of the artist group and also acted in the original plays in 1975.

This is a unique opportunity to see the plays professionally re-imagined with a new cast, set within Roger's exhibition at Eastside Projects.
