Making Manchester (2020) 

Commission from Olympias Music Foundation

Making Manchester is a multi-media performance exploring real-life stories of migration to the UK. The work explores how these unique family histories, and communities' shared migration experiences, are woven into the socio-cultural fabric of the city and its people. I recorded 60 pupils who told their family's migration stories. From these recordings, I made 4 short pieces relating to the different sections of the performance - home, traveling, arriving & Manchester. Performed at NIAMOS Radical Arts Centre & the RNCM.
