Jeremy Deller worked with Folkestone residents and members of the Folkestone and Hythe Operatic and Dramatic Society on a series of unannounced daily performances based on seaside humour and the comic tradition of Buster Keaton, Jacques Tati and Norman Wisdom. Residents and visitors had to be on the look out for the absurd in the everyday and the blending of slapstick and reality.

Collaboration and participation are central to Jeremy Deller’s artwork, he was awarded the Turner Prize in 2004, and was appointed a Trustee of the Tate Gallery in 2007.
