About the event

How To Change The World By Doing Nothing explores our experience and understanding of time, how time is spent, who controls it, and how we would spend it if we could choose. It explores radical notions of rest, doing less and ‘wasting time’.

Co-created by Fevered Sleep and Yorkshire Dance’s Company of People, How To Change The World By Doing Nothing is a durational performance installation bringing together an intergenerational community from Leeds.

This work is part of Fevered Sleep’s ongoing research and development process for their new show.

Fevered Sleep was established in 1996 by artistic directors Sam Butler and David Harradine. They aim to make the world a more caring, curious, compassionate place, one unlikely art project at a time.

Supported by the Keith Howard Foundation.
