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.
This new immersive performance premiered in June, sharing stories of refugees who made their homes in Manchester and made Manchester what it is today. Directed by Emma Doherty. Watch the clip below for more insight:
