A Series of Metaphors About A Plague at HOME Manchester, Manchester 20 May — 31 December 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Since the beginnings of European theatre and politics, people have used plague as a metaphor for thinking about what society and art could be. A Series of metaphors About A Plague is a collection of playful scenes that respond to this idea.

In this recorded online session artists, Javaad Alipoor and Natalie Diddams present their findings in response to the lockdown.

This piece is presented as part of Homemakers, an online festival by HOME Manchester. Easily accessible – on a pay-what-you-decide basis – the festival features new commissions created by artists working at home, for audiences who are staying at home.
