The Humble Market, 2012. Installation view at FACT.

The Humble Market: Trade Secrets

Taking place as part of the London 2012 Festival programme and inspired by the spectacular rise of Brazil as an economic power and the preparations for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, this new exhibition invites you to examine your psyche and decide whether you are ready for a more Brazilian world.

Embark on your journey through The Humble Market and experience the hustle and bustle of the Rio de Janeiro carnival from a Brazilian taxi, lie back on the grass and contemplate the universe and discover what happens when the impersonal automated voice on the telephone suddenly gets very personal indeed.

Don't miss this ambitious fusion of theatre, performance and media art from UK/Brazilian theatre network Zecora Ura and artists Jorge Lopes Ramos, Alastair Eilbeck, James Bailey and Persis Jade Maravala.

This exhibition form part of a trilogy of events experimenting with digital interfaces and telepresence in an artistic, theatrical and participatory context, connecting the UK and Brazil. These events culminate during the finale for the Cultural Olympiad at the WE PLAY expo in Preston.

The Humble Market is a co-production between Abandon Normal Devices, FACT and Derry - Londonderry - City of Culture 2013 and WE PLAY, commissioned by AND, FACT, WE PLAY Expo and Derry - Londonderry - City of Culture 2013 and London 2012 Festival funded by Legacy Trust UK and Arts Council England.
