Directly after the two-minute silence on Remembrance Sunday, specially commissioned music and poetry performances will begin at 10 London Underground stations.
The No Man’s Land project has been in development for seven months and “explores how European societies of 1912 walked blindly into the Great War of 1914-18, taking much of the world with them.”
Sculptures were also commissioned for each station location but due to London Underground’s concerns about congestion, these will now be displayed at the entrance to the disused Eurostar Terminal on Waterloo Mainline station — symbolic as a former gateway to France.
Performances will take place at Angel, Charing Cross, Embankment, Green Park, Knightsbridge, London Bridge, Piccadilly, St Paul’s and Waterloo and will last 53 minutes, till midday. The artists will then converge on Waterloo to join the sculptures and see what happens when they all get together. Film makers will be on hand to capture it all.
View the sculptures at Waterloo between 10.30am-2pm. Witness the performances after the two-minute silence at 11.03 until noon. Find out more.
