Chris Williams: Bright Lights and Golden Sands
Performers from More Dukes Youth Theatre have spent a week making a new multi-media work about their hometown, Morecambe.
They attempt to re-imagine their town and bay as if it were a far-off land. By drawing on family holidays, music videos, cinema, novels and oral histories, the group explore the endless narratives and landscapes from coastal towns around the world.
The performance addresses our relationships with where we live: how we yearn for other places when we are young; how we reminisce about our childhood surroundings when we grow older.
This young people’s project is a collaboration between Live at LICA associate artist Chris Williams and The Dukes. With filmmaker Sheena Holiday.
