Venue

Piccadilly Station
near Platform 3, Manchester, GB

Lavinia Greenlaw
Audio Obscura

It seems to be a timely reminder that, even among the noise of Facebook, Twitter and iPod playlists, a lonely station remains a place where you can still get lost in your thoughts. For half an hour of this festival, though, it’s really worth getting lost in everybody else’s.’

MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS

Part sound-art, part poetry, part radio play, Audio Obsucra let audiences in on the secret life of Manchester’s Piccadilly Station, the gateway to the city, Lavina Greenlaw’s words ran a line from the innermost thoughts of the passengers directly to the ear of her audiences – with moving, haunting and occasionally humorous results.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Artangel.

Artangel gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Emmanuel Roman.
