They Want to Skate is a site-specific audio performance created by Tiffany Murphy and Tina Nanaki at the Southbank Undercroft. Inspired and intrigued by the Long Live Southbank campaign’s victory against Southbank Centre’s regeneration plans that sought to turn the appropriated skate park into retail space, They Want to Skate examines the evolution of public space and the artist’s role in gentrification and regeneration within a city. Tiffany and Tina will be putting on safety gear and shakily getting onto skateboards because they want to be a part of this public space, they want to belong, they want to skate.

Programmed as part of Camden People’s Theatre festival Whose London is it Anyway?, a festival of theatre and performance exploring the changing face of our capital city.
