The presentation of a theatrical play or music concert within a fine art context.
Over By Christmas was a site responsive outdoor theatre piece designed to convey the narrative of the opening months of WWI to outdoor audiences in challenging environments (railway station platforms, or as at St Pancras, and Manchester Piccadilly, a concourse). It consisted of text and contemporary songs in a half hour work that made the railway setting a part of the work and thereby demonstrated the significance of the railways in WWI.
