Street theatre

I am fascinated by the way that public events – such as Pride, St Patrick's Day, recent additions to the calendar such as St George's Day, and even Remembrance Day – have become big cross-cultural events in which everyone can take part.

But as well as being collective occasions these events are also assertions of self-identity, a kind street of theatre in which everyone – participant and observer alike – is on-stage.
