Manchester Street Poem by Underworld and the homeless

Conceived by Karl Hyde and Rick Smith from UnderworldManchester Street Poem will spotlight the stories of those who find themselves homeless in the city – in a work where the catch-all term ‘homeless’ will give way to individuality, identity and integrity.

Manchester Street Poem will bring to life the stories of people who are homeless in Manchester. The work is both fleeting performance and compelling installation: as Hyde covers the walls of the venue with words and phrases drawn from the streets, the space will fill with a powerful soundtrack built on snatches and fragments recorded by Smith all over the city.

Co-created by Underworld and individuals with personal experience of homelessness, Manchester Street Poem will proudly broadcast the voices of those who so often go unheard and ignored.

UNFEAR 68-70 Oldham St, Manchester M4 1LE
