They keep telling me that my house is on fire at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 9 February–31 December 2020 - Book now

Written by Naomi Sampson, They keep telling me that my house is on fire explores the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement and the burning house analogy often given as an explanation to those who say ‘all lives matter’.

The piece, explored through soundscapes and film, was written in free form as a response to the frustration and anxiety experienced during the period of lockdown.

Producers of dynamic poetry and spoken word workshops for young people, Young Identity are an arts organisation working in partnership with Contact and HOME Manchester.

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