Roaming in Millennium Square, Town Hall, and Headrow Zones
Taking inspiration from Brecht’s play ‘Mother Courage and Her Children’, this roaming performance by Leeds Beckett Performing Arts students centres around a rolling wagon.
From here, students will sing songs, interact with the public, perform movement and deliver short texts, as the wagon fills with performers, artefacts and fragments of the city’s cultural innovation. Drawing on the topics of the contradiction between innovation and capitalism, ‘The Spoils of Innovation’ asks - Who profits from innovation and at what consequence?
