Produced by Contact and Young Identity.

Contact Young Company and Young Identity join forces!

Contact Young Company and Young Identity are set to takeover Manchester Art Gallery to explore what it means to decolonise public culture.

Developing an alternative tour, they invite audiences to think differently, ask questions and dismantle the gallery experience.

What does a postcolonial future look like? Maybe it looks like Beyonce in the Louvre or a Black Panther out-take or maybe we can come up with something even better…

Directed by Tunde Adefioye (dramaturg at KVS, the Royal Flemish Theatre in Brussels), this mouthy Mancunian mix-up will use both poetry and theatre as creative tools.

Make a night of it

We’d love for you to arrive up to an hour before the performance starts to enjoy a drink in the beautiful atrium of the gallery before embarking on your tour.

Post- show discussion

The performances on Thursday 13 June (7pm) & Sunday 16 June (3pm) will be followed by a post-show discussion.

This event takes place at Manchester Art Gallery

Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley St, Manchester M2 3JL


Director: Tunde Adefioye (KVS)
Assistant Director: Ruby-Ann Patterson
Designer: Alison Erika Forde

Produced by Contact and Young Identity in partnership with Manchester Art Gallery
