There There | Text HOME
Text HOME to 78070 is a durational performative invasion of immigration advice. It sees two stereotypical Eastern Europeans occupy public spaces to distribute first-hand tips on everything from getting a work permit to navigating the NHS, helping immigrants integrate and endanger the British way.
Text HOME to 78070 is the brainchild of There There, a 100% Eastern European performance company conjured up by Dana Olărescu + Bojana Janković. Originally commissioned by Giving in to Gift.
Output Arts | Running with Scissors
Output Arts presents the ultimate in hazardous track games: Running with Scissors gives you the opportunity to really test your metal. Fabulous prizes to be won!
Output Arts produces playful and poignant site-specific installations: drawing with light under a flyover; searching for stories of loss on the beach with mumbling metal detectors; a motion-triggered ringing WWII telephone in a shopping centre.

Dominique Baron-Bonarjee | Collapse Manchester
A series of bodies appears, dotted around the urban landscape. Each body is falling, falling so slowly as to be barely visible. A vertical collapse set against the rapid flow of a linear city: a human measure of time and a reflection on presence and on time itself.
Collapse is an ongoing series of performance interventions that place the ‘body as measure’; Collapse Manchester creates a new landscape of stillness in the daily rush.
Jin Bells | Head in Hole 2016
A pointless body, a meaningless action, a nonsensical intervention into the city…
Emerging Manchester artist Jin Bells works between theatre and performance art and has undertaken a residency at CRASH2016 and has upcoming performances at Islington Mill, Salford and Tempting Failure Festival, London.
Vivian Chinasa Ezugha | Because of hair; the dichotomy of culture and identity
I am not historical, I am not futuristic, I am not the old nor am I the new. I am but an object made from human hair. My purpose is to disturb, to interrupt your contemplation and seduce your vision; so that I become an image of your imagination.
Vivian Chinasa Ezugha makes work that attempts to connect to her Nigerian culture and to the questions she is asking about her identity as a black woman living in England.
“A raw unedited power, too distinct to miss. Charged and alive, Ezugha’s presence irrepressibly seeps through her skin into every action, imbuing them with strong personal, political and cultural significance.” — Zierle & Carter
