Elmi Ali: Water Seeds Not Stones on Saturday 20th - Tuesday 23rd October 2018

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.

'A revelation. A lyrical outpouring of stories, allusion, wordplay and wisdom kept afloat by an infectious and charismatic performance.' Circles and Stalls

No performance on Sunday 21st oct.
