Station Stories

28 Mar

Tom jenks and others are performing at this exciting looking event. Follow the link to book tickets.

Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to be working with the Hamilton Project and Bury Text Festival on Station Stories – a unique site specific live literature promenade event using digital technology and live improvised electronic sound. From platform to platform, café to café and shop to shop, six writers (Jenn Ashworth, Tom Fletcher, David Gaffney, Tom Jenks, Nicholas Royle and Peter Wild) take you on a creative trip of Piccadilly station and read specially commissioned stories inspired by the station and the people who use it and work there.

Audiences are linked to the writers’ microphones by headsets using wireless technology, ensuring they hear every single word, whilst still experiencing the live ambience of the location. Take a journey into this marginal, in-between world, where anything can happen and often does.

Thursday 19th May – Saturday 21st May 2011 (performances at 12noon, 3pm and 7pm)

Held in the throat of the poem is Ken Williams’s skreeking laugh, Hancock’s tussle with the melancholy of each bloodied day.”
