      The Ride part of the In Between Time Summit

      BOOK A 15-MIN SLOT TO SHARE A MOTORCYCLE RIDE ACROSS AN ICONIC AUSTRALIAN LANDSCAPE AND BECOME A CAST MEMBER IN THIS ONE-ON-ONE FILM PERFORMANCE 'A breathtaking rebuttal to white masculinity’s likely attempts to monopolise a heroic narrative.' REALTIME ARTS On 15–16 December 2014, a lone gunman held hostage ten customers and eight employees of a Lindt chocolate café in Sydney. Although the motivation of the gunman remained unclear, the reaction of the police and the media resulted in a wave of anti Muslim sentiment across Australia.  Forming a viral phenomenon, locals used the Twitter tag #illridewithyou to offer solidarity and an invitation to travel with them.   In The Ride, artist Cigdem Aydemir cleverly turns this on its head inviting you to join her and, in doing so, to co-create an incisive political act out of the simple, playful sharing of a motorcycle ride.  *No experience necessary* You will be given a simple set of instructions by the artist, you can choose any costume and props to help you get into the spirit, then you will be invited onto the back of the static motorcycle with Cigdem Aydemir. There will be a short rehearsal before filming and then the filming itself will take about 5 minuets. You will not be required to speak any lines during the filming.  The resulting film will be shown at the Arnolfini during the In Between Time Summit. Visit The Ride page for more information on the film screening. Cigdem Aydemir is a Sydney-based artist working in installation, performance and video art. Her socially and politically engaged art practice uses play, criticism and humour to create possibilities for communication. Much of her work explores the image of the veiled woman and lived experience. PLEASE NOTE ATTENDEES MUST ARRIVE 10 MINUTES BEFORE THEIR ALLOTED TIME SLOT.  We recommend participants are aged 12yrs or over. This event is part of the In Between Time Summit. The Summit is our response to the global demand for a better future. Burning with desire for change. Between 11 - 13 OCTOBER 2019 in Bristol, we will pioneer a new way of gathering.
