Space Invaders Spotted At Warwick Arts Centre

Space invaders will be landing at Warwick Arts Centre next week along with hundreds of loaves of bread, Japanese geishas and weird balloons.

They will be taking to the stage at Warwick Arts Centre as part of a national initiative to promote local up-and-coming performance artists.

The best of the performers will be selected to represent the West Midlands at the National Review of Live Art in Glasgow in November.

Eighteen artists have been chosen from a welter of proposals for live performances at the shows on Friday 9 at 7pm and Saturday 10 June at 5pm.

Stella Hall, Director of Warwick Arts Centre, said:

“This is a great chance to come and challenge your expectations, try something new and find out how creative our young artists are.

“The Midlands is establishing a reputation as being the best place in the country for live art and it is very exciting to be giving these young artists an opportunity to show what they can do.”

In March the Mead Gallery at the Arts Centre was told that it would receive funding as part of an Arts Council initiative called Spaces and Places.

The Arts Council is to award £32 million to 34 leading galleries across the country aimed at improving visual arts spaces.

Galleries receiving the award had to show a strong commitment to developing education programmes and a focus on new media.

This money will be used in part by the Mead to continue its live art programme, following on from Space Invaders.

Tickets for the shows are free and can be booked in advance by contacting the Box Office on 024 7652 4524 or by emailing
