David Banks

I am is a Glasgow based city artist. My work ranges from site-specific performance to Parkour coaching and design work.

Through my company Ukemi Project I promote activity in highly urbanised areas and encouraging a healthier society through digital design, product creation, and community arts development.

We create experiences in response to and in collaboration with communities to reclaim the city for free and open activity. Our aim is to tackle health and safety culture to encourage play and demystify fitness and movement to make it more accessible through our products and services.

As a solo artist I create contemporary theatre for stage and work as a performer across a variety of contexts; dance, circus, traditional and physical performance.

Specifically my 2019 body of work includes touring an existing show ‘Stuntman’ and the creation of two new pieces. Designing and delivery a parkour park in the city centre and doing a charity/performance art stunt where I will balance on a rail for 23 miles for mental health charities.
