Cells - a body of work

05th November 2018 - 11th November 2018
A woman sits across a table from a man in a wheelchair. They are raising a glass to each other. Behind them is a wall covered in paintings.

The programme of live art installations is free and no booking is needed. You can see the schedule for each day here Proud_and_Loud_Tate_Exchange_Programme_Schedule.pdf

Cells – A Body Of Work is a collection live art installations created in response to the Manchester Evening News report, in October 2015, describing a 140% rise in reported hate crime incidents against people with disabilities [1]. 

Each artist responds to the labels they are confronted with in their lives, some shared and others unique. Every interaction offers a challenging perspective on stigma as some labels are given special treatment and a glass of champagne, and others are put in a safe place where no one can find them.

One of the performances is age 18+ recommended and will be highlighted in the schedule at Tate Exchange. 

A larger group performance piece entitled Affirmations was created to accompany this body of work, and encourages audiences to move around the room and observe the performance as it changes and perspective shifts. 

Made possible with funding from Arts Council England, Salford Clinical Commissioning Group and Salford CVS with the support of Antz Junction and Manchester Art Gallery.

Part of Cells - A Body of Work, this Live Art installation is a group response to the impact of social stigma and personal identity. 

Made by Proud & Loud artists in collaboration with a team of highly experienced local Artists.

Affirmations was directed by Tom Hogan with movement director, Susan Swanton and designer, Nerissa Cargill Thompson. 

We are delighted to have developed this new work with performing arts students in partnership with The University of Bolton, and Arts Council England. 

Affirmations premiered at Manchester Art Gallery, March 2018.
