Over the past month I have recorded 60 pupil's family stories of migration and made a selection of sound works that will be played at Making 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 (DTA) 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.
