For those of you in Budapest, please come along to Rider Spoke....

Presented as part of PLACCC 2008 | Art On Site - International Site-specific Programme Series, Budapest Autumn Festival

Where: Gödör Klub, Budapest V. ker., Erzsébet tér
Times: 6pm - 10pm on Oct 10, 13, 14 and 4.30pm - 10pm on Oct 11 & 12

Take a cycle ride in the streets around Budapest. A games console mounted on your handlebars will guide you as you roll through the city. Slip down an alley and find yourself in a quiet corner. Make a recording, then move on glimpsing traces of other players, eavesdropping under a bridge or from the top of a multi story car park.

Rider Spoke continues Blast Theory’s fascination with how games and new communication technologies are creating new social spaces. It poses further questions about where theatre may be sited and what form it may take. It invites the public to be co-authors of the piece and a visible manifestation of it as they cycle through the city.

Participation is free, but tickets must be booked in advance, for full details contact Budapest Autumn Festival customer service H–1052 Budapest, Szervita tér 5. Tel. +36(0)61 486 3311 or email ticket@festivalcity.hu

Rider Spoke in Budapest is co-organised by Artopolis Association and Budapest Autumn Festival. This presentation has been made possible by the generous support of the British Council.
