The performance will explore stories around leaving home and homelessness.

The performance will first be presented in a house in Toxteth, before touring to a number of homes in Liverpool 8 during June 2017. The performance will also be shared as a film on digital platforms.

Community engagement and participation will be key elements of the project.  The aim is to engage local L8 communities as well as young audiences throughout the creative process and tour. The project will include an open space participation event in June.

The creative team includes: Keith Saha (Writer & Musical Director), Julia Samuels (Director) and Phelim McDermott (Associate Artist).

We are looking for a dynamic and experienced producer to oversee and manage the project though the research and development phase, the rehearsal, tour and evaluation. The fee for this piece of work is £5000.
