Making Contact – an oral history of Contact Manchester

Quarantine was established in 1998 by directors Richard Gregory and Renny O’Shea with designer Simon Banham. We make original theatre, performance and public events with and about the people who are in it. Whatever form it takes, our work begins and ends with the people in the room. Over the last 20 years, we've collaborated with a shifting constellation of artists, performers and people who've never done anything like this before. Our work seeks to create the circumstances for a conversation between strangers...

Making Contact – an oral history of Contact Manchester

Posted: 12 July 2016

Celebrating Contact’s 50th year, Making Contact is a new film and website featuring over 60 interviews with staff, artists and young people who have been part of Contact’s legacy of inspiring and developing generations of artists.

Both Richard and Renny have shared their histories, from working with Contact’s young company in the 90s, to making and presenting work, both as individual artists and as Quarantine, with support from Contact for over a decade.
