Tell No One – A Confidentiality Clause was a Behind Closed Doors project. It involved a performance led transformation of the Periscope Space, Birmingham, with an emphasis on forbidden zones, containment and projective clothing. The artists/performers controlled the admittance into specific areas of the space by requiring the audience to sign a confidentiality clause prior to being allowed access as well as regulating the duration of their stay within certain areas of the 2 day event.
