Small Acts is the new company name for performance artists Katie Etheridge and Simon Persighetti. They develop ambitious socially engaged projects across artforms, working with people + performance + participation + place.
Based in Cornwall, UK, Katie and Simon create and produce projects locally, nationally and internationally that invite audiences to investigate their own relationships with the places in which they live, work and play. Major projects to date include Personal Shopper (2014-16 commissioned by Compass Live Art), Porous City (selected to represent the UK at PQ19 site- specific festival) and live art game Faceback.
Small Acts latest project Future Pub, is being made with input from brewers, publicans, communities and pub campaigners to explore the enduring role of pubs in our communities and lives at a time when nearly a quarter of pubs in the UK have closed since 2008, and the future of many more now hangs in the balance.
