Touring internationally since 2008, Play Me, I’m Yours is an artwork by British artist Luke Jerram. Reaching over six million people worldwide – more than 1,300 pianos have already been installed in 45 cities across the globe, from New York to London, bearing the simple instruction ‘Play Me, I’m Yours’.
Located in public parks, bus shelters and train stations, markets and even on ferries the pianos are available for any member of the public to play and enjoy. Who plays them and how long they remain on the streets is up to each community. Many pianos are personalised and decorated by artists or the local community. By creating a place of exchange Play Me, I’m Yours invites the public to engage with, activate and take ownership of their urban environment.
We are delighted to announce that we have three cities signed up for 2015, with more to follow soon. First off is Florence, South Carolina in April/May, closely followed by Greater Geneva in June and then in Canary Wharf later on in September. We are currently working with a number of potential partners for 2015 so new cities will be announced in due course – watch this space! Read More...

Phoebe had just locked the door of the theatre,being the 'last cab off the rank'.It was dark as she crossed the courtyard, and stopped to gaze at the piano.Was she going to play it today? Who knows? Was she suspecting that she would be accosted by a music fan with a camera? This is anybody's guess.. The following is what ensued as she agreed to be filmed by this stranger, and performed an 'original composition'..
