Umbrellas in the Sun
A production created by young people about their love for Manchester told through different cultures, dance, singing and poetry. What does it mean to be a ‘child of the world' in the UK in 2021 and what does it mean to be a citizen of Manchester? In their own words and feelings, a group of children and young people aged seven to 16-years of age vividly spell out what Manchester, their home, means to them and what evocative reminders of their own, individual heritage mean to them across four, special performances. Devised and developed by the performers themselves, Umbrellas In The Sun brings together inspirations from as far and wide as Nigeria, Ghana and Syria to speak of identity, nationhood and distinct cultures, all the while celebrating the things that unite young people beyond nationality and language. Told through dance, singing, drama and improvised performance, the journey across the world begins starts at home, in Manchester, a shared love for every young performer, the place they call home.
