12 Last Songs
22 & 23 October 2021 | Transform, Leeds
Nice to meet you. What do you do?
12 Last Songs is a new performance piece by Quarantine about labour – the work that we do. Taking place over 12 hours, it is part-durational performance, part-exhibition of people.
12 Last Songs will invite people into the room to demonstrate their skills and to find out who they are. Perhaps a hairdresser cutting hair, a butcher butchering a sheep, a bricklayer building a wall… It will be a space for making, watching, talking. One that brings people together who wouldn’t otherwise meet.
Directed by Richard Gregory, 12 Last Songs is currently in development in Manchester and scheduled to premiere in Autumn 2021.
22 & 23 October 2021 | Co-production with Transform at Leeds Playhouse – tickets on sale in mid-August
