Into the Hinterlands 2221

Sheffield, 2019 – Current

Director: Malaika Cunningham

Writers: Joseph Houlders and Zelda Hannay

Producer: Linda Bloomfield

Set Design and Puppet-Making: Sarah Lewis-Cole

Sound Design: Lee Affen

Video and Lighting Design: Will Monks

 

Co-created in collaboration with community partners including Grimm & Co, Sheffield Music Hubs, SADACCA, Darnall Wellbeing, and The Emmaus Trust.

 

Supported by The Canal and River Trust and Arts Council England.

A large-scale processional performance and carnival along the length of the Sheffield-Tinsley canal, co-created with participants who live and work there. The performance will take place in June 2022 and is being co-designed with people of all ages through community organisations and groups, schools, and businesses. It will include film, puppetry, live music, story-telling, and more. The visionary performance, and the three-year programme of workshops and events leading up to it, are a collective act of futurology, asking: what might the next 200 years on the canal look like?

 

This builds on our work with the Canal and River Trust on Everyday Myths, and forms part of Hinterlands, their national arts programme promoting wellbeing and connecting communities with participatory arts events in urban & suburban waterway corridors around the UK.
