About the event
World premiere of a new durational performance by Manchester-based, internationally renowned company Quarantine.
Nice to meet you, what do you do?
‘12 Last Songs’ is about work.
Making a living. Finding your passion. Watching the clock.
‘12 Last Songs’ constructs a fleeting portrait of society. There are no actors. It’s a live exhibition of people, an epic performance that casts the steady rhythms of life on a carnival scale.
Over the course of a day, workers will do shifts. A bricklayer might build a wall, a hairdresser might cut someone’s hair, a chef might prepare a meal…
This extraordinary production, created with the people of Leeds, is the latest work by Manchester-based ensemble Quarantine, known around the world for their forensic interest in daily life.
Presented as part of Transform 21-22.
The space is fully wheelchair accessible and there will be integrated BSL-interpretation throughout. Please contact box office if you have specific access requirements so we can do our best to tailor the experience appropriately for you.
