Discover the story of migration through the journey of the pear in a day of performance art, spoken word and happenings at The Whitaker.
This event focuses on stories of human migration within the context of the environment and sustainability of the pear with artists taking you through feudal China, the ancient gardens of Afghanistan, over French Orchards, into the British Landscape and Lancashire.
Lead artist Xhi Ndubisi will be joined by a number of other performance artists throughout the day.
This project is part of a long-term North West initiative with the Orchard Project, Longsight Art Space, PROFORMA, Crowcroft Park (Longsight, Manchester), The Portico Library and Lancaster Arts.
Members of our community have joined artists during October to explore this journey and add their voices to the performance.
