Extinction Rebellion London

LUNG is part of the East London Uprising, a weekend of play, protest and education on July 12th – 14th that will feature arts, music, talks, workshops, guerrilla gardening, performances and marches, solutions area and non-violent direct action across East London.

LUNG is a seven minute street performance which brings to life the impact of pollution on life on Earth. In three stages, we witness a healthy breathing lung deteriorate from vehicle pollution & human impact. It coughs and gasps until it collapses and ‘dies’.

But in the third stage, nature revives the lung, breathing air and harmony back into the organism, symbolising the critical role nature plays in the health of our co-dependant eco systems.
