‘Play Me, I’m Yours’, Sao Paulo.

In March 2008 we commissioned Luke Jerram to produce ‘Play Me, I’m yours’ as part of this years Fierce! Festival. The piece launched the festival in spectacular style as fifteen pianos were delivered to the streets of Birmingham in unusual spaces inviting the general public to ‘play me, I’m yours’.

After its resounding success and drawing international media attention from Radio 4’s Today Programme, Sky News, NPR (National Public Radio in the USA) and the Guardian it is estimated that the press coverage reached over 24 million people.

Pianos have recently been distributed onto the streets in Sao Paolo for Mostra SESC de Artes 2008. You can see the reactions to ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’ on the Sao Paolo site – click here.

Luke Jerram was also the artist who created the ‘Sky Orchestra’, which has toured UK, Switzerland, Sydney and many more to come.

We are proud supporters of Luke Jerram’s work!
