THE SPILL FESTIVAL OF PERFORMANCE IS AN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF LIVE ART, ACTIVISM AND PERFORMANCE PRESENTING THE WORK OF EXCEPTIONAL ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE.
BURN YOUR WOES AND CLEAR SPACE FOR WINTER.
On the opening night of SPILL Festival, a Pyre Parade effigy will be revealed at Ipswich Waterfront before being placed in La Tour Cycle Café. For 10 days you will be able to take a private moment and write down bad news, before posting it inside the effigy. Bad debts, health worries, a sour relationship, or colouring in where you went over the edges – whatever the badness, feed the beast.
Then join us as we gather at 17:00 on Saturday 3 November, to march the effigy noisily from Ipswich Waterfront to Christchurch Park (Fonnereau Road entrance), accompanied by mystical performers and a marching band, before we engulf the effigy in flames.
Burning up the night sky and opening space for a better future.
Local lads Mark Offord and Robert Pacitti have started The Rough Band, but anyone can be a member. Simply turn up with something loud to bang, such as wooden spoons on saucepan lids, and be prepared to hush as we move respectfully through Silent Street.
