Saturday, 14 January 2012
Midday to Midnight (Free, no booking required)
Reactor Towers, 5d Arkwright Street, Nottingham NG2 2JR

Following a Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), Reactor has been given 14 days to vacate Reactor Towers (the space the group have occupied for the last nine years). 

In response the group will stage one final project in the space: Deathtrap.

Reactor invited artists who have worked with the group in this space over the last nine years to contribute to this responsive, impromptu, improvised and ad hoc project. Turning the Towers into a living installation. Pre-empting its destruction and prophesising what will emerge from the rubble. Throwing health & safety (along with other things) out of the windows and inducing fear of confined spaces. Opening up hidden parts of the building and bricking up the exits.

Including: Niki Russell, Stuart Tait, Dan Williamson, Jon Burgerman, Bruce Asbestos, Claire Hind, Phillip Henderson, Dingle Price, Craig Fisher, Robin Close, Mark Gubb, Kathryn Cooper, AuntyNazi, Vladimir Krushal, Joe Kelly, Jonathan Waring, Dai Roberts + more (tbc)

The last opportunity to visit Reactor Towers and witness its demise.

Put this death in your diary.

Live situations ongoing throughout the day, and performances from 6pm:

Bruce Asbestos, VARIATION: Open Ended Ending
Claire Hind, Death Records
AuntyNazi, Phase XVII: Fung Shun Dynasty – Inter De Lizard
Eǝrth Rod, Terry’s Back Passage
