Event Description

In 2011, Banksy sprayed "THIS LOOKS A BIT LIKE AN ELEPHANT" on a disused water tank in LA. The tank was residence for a local legend, Tachowa Covington, who over seven years had furnished it with carpets, a stove – even CCTV.

The tank instantly became a work of art and was taken away to be sold. Suddenly, Tachowa was homeless again.

Starring Gary Beadle (EastEnders' Paul Trueman) - this is a story about creating something from nothing and then having it taken away, in the name of art.

The play will be followed by a screening of Something from Nothing, documentary maker Hal Samples' short film about Tachowa and the tank, edited from material gathered over 7 years.

Running time: 1hr 50m (including interval and documentary)
Ages: 12+
