The Humble Market
Part performance, part experience, Trade Secrets presents us with a universe threatened with complete control. Using the lens of the marketplace to ask, "What do we really trade? What should be traded? And what cannot be bought?"
Trade Secrets is inspired by the spectacular rise of Brazil as an economic power and the trading cities of the Northwest in the UK and Southeast in Brazil. Through a choreographed journey of interactive vehicles expect intimate provocations that confront us with the follies of mass consumerism. The Humble Market: Trade Secrets is presented as part of the Abandon Normal Devices festival, which is taking place across the region in 2012.
Visitors wishing to see Trade Secrets must do so as part of regular tours that depart each day. For information about visiting Trade Secrets visit the Humble Market webpage.
