Penny Woolcock: Utopia
Personal, political and pertinent – this is art that will make you think
This summer, award-winning filmmaker, writer and artist Penny Woolcock will take over The Roundhouse's Main Space with Utopia, a major new installation realised in collaboration with Block9, the designers famous for creating the extravagant fantasy worlds of Glastonbury’s after-hours stage. Utopia is a city experienced through imagined environments peppered with narrative soundscapes showcasing the stories of Londoners from the most wildly diverse of backgrounds to reveal the hidden narratives of our city. Inequality, consumerism, housing, gentrification, education, crime and social media loom large in a fascinating, multi-sensory world. This piece will open your eyes and change your life. The duration of the visit is 1 hour. Please arrive in good time to collect your tickets, as latecomers may not be admitted.
"Eye-opening and life-changing."
