Making Manchester - Niamos - Manchester

Making Manchester is a multi-media performance exploring real-life stories of migration to the UK, as told by 60 pupils from Dean Trust Ardwick secondary school in Manchester. Using live music, poetry and physical theatre, the work explores how these unique family histories, and communities' shared experiences of migration, are woven into the socio-cultural fabric of the city and its people.2 years of research and development later, we are delighted to announce that the premiere performances of Making Manchester will take place on 27-28th June at the Niamos Radical Arts Centre, featuring:Director: Emma DohertyProducer: Jo Yee Cheung (Alice Chan)Poet: Shamshad KhanComposer: James WhittleElectronic sound artist: Hayley SuvisteMusicians: Kabantu and Vonnegut CollectiveMovement director: Tilda O'GradyActors: Dominic Coffey, Mithun Gill, Sameena Hussain, Zoe KatsilerouGraphic Design: Mac Tomato and Chia-ChiaTickets available from:https://events.ticketsforgood.co.uk/events/1412-making-manchesterhttp://skiddle.com/e/13554517For more info, visit:www.olympiasmusicfoundation.com/making-manchester#MakingManchester
