About the event
During lockdown Daniel Oliver had a bawdy anxiety dream that he got stuck in a board-game about performance art and time travel. This is the live game of the performance of that board-game from that dream.
It will be like that cartoon about dungeons and dragons called Dungeons and Dragons where they all got stuck on that fair ride, but with less encounters with wizards and more encounters with half-imagined transgressive performance art.
It will be like those online Escape Room games that you see advertised on the internet but made by a dyspraxic who doesn’t really know what they are. It will be like that amazing performance art festival that you went to that changed your life probably in a good way.
Who’s that mysterious playdough person in the bar? Where has Andy Spinkle gone and why has he stolen the projector? What’s at stake if you pretend to take your clothes off for an imaginary large-scale immersive performance? What’s at stake if you say that you pretend that you won’t but you actually pretend that you will anyway? What’s in that cupboard? What’s Daniel really up to?
Join performance-artist-cum-games-master-cum-dream-master Daniel Oliver to find out. Maybe.

Bring your curious pals and your great chat and observe new artistic ideas and experiments come to life, or even just for a drink and some lovely company.
Booking is advised There is a reservation fee of £3.50 per person and the price of the ticket will get you that amount off your first round of drinks unless you decide to donate the cost to CLAY.
CLAYground pilot series (August- October 2021) was made possible with support from Leeds Inspired to address the lack of non-hierarchical spaces for live artists and those interested in artworks to co-exist and test things out.
