Originally inspired by the destruction of The Chartists Mural in Newport, South Wales, Smash it Up explores the destruction of art, culture and public space. Beginning as a performance lecture, and using performance art and physical theatre it explores the historical acts of cultural cleansing by fanatics, institutions and by artists themselves.

Smash it Up is an engaging and poignant theatre show that has been developed on the streets and building sites of a city in transition, a city like any other in the UK.

Mr and Mrs Clark live in South Wales, where they have been making performance, live art and dance theatre since 2002. Often their work has a playful and interactive element inspired by happenings and live art events that bring art forms and people together. They have a DIY approach to exploring and developing ideas.

Mr & Mrs Clark wrote a blog about their experience there. Read all about it here: https://mrandmrsclark.wordpress.com/
