In 2018 we engaged live audiences and collaborators to build the conversational environment and create a live Encounter.
The Encounter is an emotive journey inspired by the migration experiences of residents in Leeds.
In the environment audience movement triggers voices, sounds and light responses.
A collaboration residency at Union 105 resulted in a special event at The Tetley for Light Night Leeds.
We drew on conversations with communities in Leeds and our personal narratives to explore themes of migration.
During the encounter artists are situated amongst and moving throughout the audience with multiple areas of focus around the space.
