Long Division Festival 2018 commission

As part of our “Manifesto For A New Wakefield” project, we are proud to be commissioning Ali Bullivent to create a brand new project “Landed”.

A spoken word, song and music soundscape inspired by stories, experiences and expectations of people who have found themselves in Wakefield originally from other lands. The piece will reflect world music percussion and word rhythm trends experienced by participants in their homelands alongside what may be experienced here. Our musical sound sphere is influenced by a myriad of forces from advertising to popular tunes to traditional sounds. “Landed’ aims to capture and reflect some of those musical narratives and perform them at gathering places on the streets of Wakefield.
