Precarious Carnaval

Brazil-based artists Lowri Evans and Renato Bolelli Reboucas will be swapping São Paulo for Salford this August.

The two of them will be floating along the Bridgewater Canal, fishing for stories and secrets from the people they meet. Look out for strange goings on, chance encounters and pop-up performances as they attempt to piece together a portrait of a place and its people. They'll be starting at Boothstown on 13 August and gradually moving along the canal each day, over four weeks, as they head towards Barton Aqueduct.  

This will be the first part of an exciting collaboration that will culminate in a shower of poetic fragments on the canal for one day in summer 2019. Expect a confetti of personal stories, spectacular happenings and lively get-togethers in a carnaval where nothing is as it seems. Keep an eye out for more details nearer the time
