If you didn't have chance to join us at Be//longing here's a bit of taster of what we had on display.
We opened our latest show last night. It is on until Saturday and we would love to welcome you.
There really is something for everyone with art, audio installations, multi media and a live performance, all around the topic of migration.

We're busy researching, writing, filming, recording, making and building for our next project. Be//longing is a brand new piece of theatre showcasing the research of Manchester's Migration Lab.
We don't want to give too much away but you can expect live peformance, multimedia and installations to explore the theme of borders.
We'd absolutely love it if you could join us.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us and helped us create our beautiful Take Back community.
Absolute privilege to be invited to perform a short of My Version of Events at the Voices of Survivors GM Launch event today. What an amazing project, collating and exploring women's experiences as survivors of sexual violence.
We look forward to seeing how the project develops. So many inspiring women there today from organisations like GM police, Manchester Rape Crisis, Trafford Rape Crisis, MASH and so many more... lovely to have such a warm response. Thanks to Shila and Dean for being amazing!
Marking our two year anniversary in the venue in which it all started, we'd love you to come along to an evening that will be a celebration of protest and resistance with 10 new specially written pieces tackling some of the big issues of our day.

We've been a bit quiet over the last month, but have been busy preparing for new projects. We are currently working with University of Manchester, Sundae PR and Hope Mill Theatre, on Borders to Belonging, an exciting new piece of theatre we're working on for the Autumn to launch the Migration Lab, a dedicated hub at Manchester Uni of the work of top researchers into migration. More details to follow.

#TakeBackOurBodies last night was so special.
Thank you to all of the amazing creative team, who gave so generously of their time, talent and of themselves to create an evening that sparked conversation, discussion and new levels of understanding. Your love, support, honesty and downright amazingness was everything.
Thank you so much to all the fabulous audience who came and were a part of the conversation.
We ended the night with these words from the awesome Sandra Cole, "Everybody hold hands. One body."
It was an honour to share in that moment with such a diverse and united room full of people.
For us, it's what Take Back is all about.
So much love and solidarity,
