Always something moves: Sophie Lee & SHE Choir at Manchester Central Library, Manchester 8 February 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

Mark Devereux Projects presents a new performance by artist Sophie Lee with SHE Choir at Manchester Central Library. Taking place throughout various spaces within the library building, Lee has written and produced a new arrangement combining words and phrases from forgotten books as part of her touring project, Always something moves.

In her new body of work, Lee considers the connection between landscape and memory. Exploring places and spaces of contemplation and the act of remembering, she reflects on her father’s dementia and a shift in familial roles and relationships.
