Triple Spin (2012) was performed by Ann Rapstoff, Philip Lee and Cally Trench during Remarkable Place, at The Keep, Reading, on 25th March 2012. Ann, dressed in white, and Cally, dressed in black, painted Philip in broad black and white stripes with a yellow top to his head, so that he resembled a Belisha beacon. Their subsequent actions inside the Keep and outside - both in the grounds and in the street - continued their ongoing research into, and celebration of, zebra crossings.

Philip Lee writes: 'Triple Spin was a performance about zebra crossings, without a zebra crossing. We started with Ann Rapstoff, dressed in white, painting my body's white stripes, and Cally Trench, dressed in black, painting my black stripes. Once the top of my head was painted orange, I had become a living Belisha Beacon. The response to the promenade performance from the spectators was one of bewildered amusement and surprise as we continued our ritual crossings of imaginary crossings out on the street, and when lamb's bleats and train noises came from devices in Cally's pocket, prompting various quirky, theatrical reactions from us all.'
