A Home for Grief at Contact Theatre, Manchester, 29–31 July 2021, from £5.00 - Book now

Part of Contact Theatre‘s new summer season, A Home for Grief is a unique experience for one person at a time. The show will take participants on a journey from the Contact building and through the surrounding streets, as they listen to the voices of local women expressing their stories of grief, loss and renewal.

Taking audiences out onto the streets and into unusual places across the city, A Home for Grief is just one of a series of outdoor shows presented by Contact this season. The performance has been created by Liverpool-based dance artist Fabiola Santana as a response to the complex feelings of grief experiences during the Covid-19 pandemic.

All you need is your mobile phone ( to download the ‘sound walk’ via the app, GoJauntly) and a set of headphones and you’re ready to go. The journey can be experienced at your own pace and culminates inside the Contact building. A Home for Grief is a sensitive piece that allows participants time to reflect on grief and care in today’s society.

This event is free to those with Contact Membership.
