Louise Jordan DYCP

The Pop-Up Pedestal is a street theatre performance that explores the concept of statues in public spaces and social justice themes of representation, protest and gender equality.

The piece was inspired by the song ‘Pedestal’ (video above) which I wrote for my touring production ‘Florence‘ and it questions who we commemorate in our public spaces and why. Who deserves a place on the pedestal in 2023 and how should history be presented in our towns and streets, on our plaques and memorials?

Popping-up in the heart of communities, the pedestal challenges views of public space from within public space, inviting people to consider what’s around them and why it matters.

The Pop-Up Pedestal was created with support using public funding from Arts Council England and I am grateful to acknowledge their support.
