Simulate the exhilarating experience of being a freerunner with `RBKCParkour' on Saturday 21 July, a part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea's InTRANSIT Festival of Arts.
From 2pm to 4pm on Saturday 21 July, visitors to Portobello Pop-Up Cinema (3 Acklam Road, W10 5TY) can be part of an interactive art installation and replicate traversing urban landscapes in Kensington and Chelsea through the skill of freerunning.
Parkour originated in France and the main purpose of this discipline is teaching people how to move through their environment, advancing around obstacles by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing and jumping.
Councillor Nick Paget-Brown, Deputy Leader of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, said: "Parkour is a very exciting way of moving around a city and its finest exponents seem to make it look effortless, which I'm sure it's not.
"If you've never seen parkour in action and want to experience what it's like as part of this innovative art installation come along to the pop-up cinema and give it a go."
Karen Palmer is a freerunner and an award winning artist. Her work explores the physiological aspects of being a freerunner and the psyche of the parkour experience. Karen's practice has evolved into interactive art in the public realm as she strives to simulate this experience.
The event is free and no booking is required.
