The Race

A collaboration between the artist Michael Pinsky and the composer John Parr, commissioned by ArtHouse.

The race hijacks unsuspecting shoppers, street cleaners, market sellers and tourists from the centre of Doncaster. They are pitted against each other in a huge race around the city. A multi-screen film documenting this competition is projected in a panoramic format across the length of Priory Walk. To accompany the film, a composition will follow the race down the street using brass bands, choirs, a string octet and Zimbabwean percussionists. the race reflects Doncaster’s prominent role in equestrian racing and the nature of peoples lives as they swiftly go about their daily tasks as if vying with unknown rivals.
