Hunger: verb - a strong desire or craving
WHAT ARE YOU HUNGRY FOR? 'EMPATHISES WITH HUMAN NEED
The project researched and communicated individual need and potential as well as the consequence of societal rejection, it placed an emphasis on the individual and the resilience within, as oppose to cultural tradition and societal convention, reaching those who are feeling very much alone and in need of self recognition & support.
WAYHF? responded to & augmented this work by perpetuating the discourse with new & existing partners to create visibility & deeper dialogue concerning to the sociological importance of art in the community. The combination of virtual & live performance, & wrap around activities; (virtual Q&A’s, live-streamed talks, interactive feedback sessions & Zoom workshops) ensured accessibility for those who cannot attend social spaces.
To realise the project, CVIVArts Theatre worked in partnership with The Dance Studio Leeds, Slung Low at The Holbeck, Left Bank Leeds, Open Source Arts, Seven Arts Centre.
