In celebration of the last weekend of our Disrupt? Peterloo and Protest exhibition, join this visual and musical journey with compositions specially created and performed by Tagné Tebu, a multi-instrumentalist coming from a mix of jazz, African, Latin and Indo-Arabic influences. Featuring live visual projections from video artist Kooj Chuhan, Viva Declaration will premiere a new version of 2019’s acclaimed Declaration performance, with additional material and design plus a special guest musician. Expect sections of free improv, interactive video and audio loops, spoken polemics, multi-layered rhythms and evocative melodic structures.
Viva Declaration includes a mix of spoken monologues by detainees, human rights activists, legal case workers, plus material from campaigners, academics, and organisations including Angela Davis, Walter Rodney, Shami Chakrabarti, Viraj Mendis, Bridget Anderson, Greater Manchester Immigration Aid Unit, and These Walls Must Fall campaign. The event includes a post show Q&A with local rights and justice campaigners.
