The Machine Speaks in 3D was developed and produced as part of the Nu Britannia youth showcase for Exodus Onstage 2010.
Following an outreach campaign a group of diverse young people aged emerged. These young people worked intensively with experienced directors, Matthew Goodall and Sarah Sayeed to produce an exciting multi-media production featuring hip hop, dance, theatre, film and multi-media elements exploring young people’s attitudes to technology. The final production was performed at Contact Theatre as part of Exodus Onstage and played to a large youth audience.
The project was also accompanied by a young producer’s development programme to assist emerging young and diverse producers and a series of outreach workshops for young refugees and asylum seekers in Manchester. These outreach sessions gave young participants access to a series of drama, music and African drumming taster workshops.
The Machine Speaks enabled CAN to reach out to a diverse group of young creatives who are engaged and keen to develop further work.
