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, in conjunction with Manchester University and the Runnymede Trust, we are delighted to announce that the premiere performances of Making Manchester will take place at 7:30pm on 27th and 28th June at the Niamos Radical Arts Centre in Manchester featuring:

Director: Emma Doherty
Producer: Jo Yee Cheung
Poet: Shamshad Khan
Composer: James Whittle
Electronic sound artist: Hayley Suviste
Musicians: Kabantu and Vonnegut Collective
Movement director: Tilda O'Grady
