Elmi Ali: Water Seeds Not Stones at STUN Studio at Z-arts, Manchester, 20–23 October 2018, from £7.00 - Book now

Water Seeds Not Stones combines traditional storytelling and performance art through the post-modern character of Mamamawodi. Inspired by the mobile street sellers of Manchester’s Market Street, he’s a hawker, a bookworm, a street peddler, a traveler, a storyteller, an activist and a gardener librarian.

Conjouring visions while enduring real-world interruptions from her majesty’s border agency, our trickster takes us on a journey across continents to the heart of soft power.

Directed by Matt Fenton, this exciting new commission from Contact showcases one of the most exciting artists to emerge from Manchester’s vibrant and diverse spoken word scene.
