Kidnapping Ed McKeon
Maya Verlaak
March 2014

Ed McKeon was the curator of Birmingham Conservatoire Frontiers Plus festival 2014. At the start of this festival I kidnapped him with the idea to send him back to London.
The Festival took 14 days and a boat trip from Birmingham to London takes 14 days. This became the time structure of the piece.
When the piece was performed, nobody knew I was involved.
I had a fake email address and Facebook page. Each day, people received an email with updates.
