As I Live And Breathe is a free programme of unique performance encounters unfolding over the course of one afternoon throughout the iconic De La Warr Pavilion.

Four performances will take place from 1-4pm across the building giving the audience the opportunity to follow their own path and spend as much or as little time with each artist as they wish.

Join us for a memorable journey through the themes of transformation and visibility, bringing often untold stories and ideas into the open and visible architecture of a public space.

FREE, no ticket required
1 – 4pm

Programme

Oozing Gloop: Glooptopia Coffee Morning

An intimate and interactive performance of cross-cultural story telling that utilises ancient and unique Turkish proverbs to think about how we live now.

Rubiane Maia and Emilio Rojas: Untitled
