Urban Flotsam is a geographical orchestration of a city and of lives, using the intimate narratives of 11 performers.

These stories based on true moments of time and place have been retraced and weaved through the streets of the City of Manchester, within a process of re-mapping the city with intimacy.

                                         Memories re-invent place, time and landscape.

Whilst travelling through the urban networks we have gathered and collected the debris and wreckage that the urban landscape produces.

The driftwood of lives washed up around us has become our material to produce Urban Flotsam.

Urban Flotsam is a multi-disciplinary performance event that offers a multiple variations of engagement, from the durational to the traditional framing of time within performance to the taking of walks through to the generation of new maps of intimacy, to international participation.
