12 Last Songs is about work and how we spend our time.
Making a living. Finding your passion. Watching the clock.
From midday to midnight, workers will perform paid shifts. A builder might build a wall, a hairdresser might cut someone’s hair, a chef might prepare a meal…
Somewhere between a live exhibition of people and an epic performance, 12 Last Songs frames the rhythms of the city, through the people who make it work.
Directed by Richard Gregory, it’s the latest work by Manchester-based ensemble Quarantine known around the world for their forensic interest in daily life.
12 Last Songs takes place over 12 hours. Audiences can come and go as they please over the course of the day.
