Live Performance: Puffin Crossing Carousel

In the final scene of Jacques Tati’s Playtime, a roundabout is transformed into a moving carousel. Inspired by this scene, artist Naomi Kashiwagi has collaborated with choreographer Benji Reid to devise a new performance that will transform the junction outside Cornerhouse into a merry-go-round, as knowing and unaware participants perform choreographed movements to Francis Lemarque’s song ‘L’Opéra des Jours Heureux’.
