RRELEASE is an interactive digital art installation and dance performance that explores stories of female migration and the human capacity to offer a place of refuge in times of crisis.
As a lone woman appears on a surreal pedestrian refuge island we begin to hear just why she braved the elements to leave her home and settle here in a new place of refuge.
Created by Whispered Tales, choreographed by Lisa Simpson, film design by Parang Khezri with a stunning performance by Shahada Nantaba. Sekajja. RELEASE promises to be a captivating emotive dance performance not to be missed.
RELEASE will tour to Liverpool, Leicester and Bradford in 2023 and will then embark on a national tour in 2024.
Commissioned by ArtReach with funding from Arts Council England, Liverpool City Council, Hope University and The City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council.
Release is an Arts Council England funded project that shares stories of migration where music has offered a moment of release, created in partnership with Mahboobeh Rajabi an Iranian digital artist.
