Little Sister

Little Sister

04 Aug - 07 Aug

Loosely based on the Brothers Grimm fairytale The Twelve Swans, this extraordinary project brings together participants from across Greater Manchester with professional artists including a clown, an aerialist, a classical cellist who plays the saw, and the production departments of the Royal Exchange Theatre.   

Mark Storor makes work in a unique place between live art and theatre, specialising in giving voice to those we rarely choose to hear, often collaborating with people from vulnerable and marginalised communities and those living with chronic illness. 

He usually works over several years to create extraordinarily beautiful, delicate and uplifting theatre in which community performers and professionals work side by side in genuine partnership. His work is intensely visual and poetic.

“Storor is a genius at excavating lived experience and showing it as staged metaphor.” - Lyn Gardner,  Guardian.
