Station Stories at Piccadilly

This image is my attempt to mark the event called "Station Stories" at Piccadilly train and tram station from Thursday 19th to Saturday 21st May.

From the Media Release: 
"You are at Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station - You are wearing headphones - You are with a group all wearing headphones - The station is crowded, people rushing everywhere - You can hear someone speaking in your headphones. She is telling you a story - The reader of the story is somewhere in the crowd, she is reading the story now, it's live - You try to pick her out from the crowd - Eventually she comes into view - She continues to tell the story. She talks to rail travelers around her. They don't know she is telling a story. They don't know she is transmitting live - They don't know about us - This is story telling with a difference - This is performance with a difference - This is Station Stories."

In partnership with Manchester Literature Festival and the Text Festival, The Hamilton Project present - Station stories; a unique, site specific, live, literature performance event using digital technology and improvised electronic sound. From platform to platform, café to café and shop to shop, six writers take you on a creative trip at Piccadilly station and read specially commissioned stories inspired by the station and the people who use it and work there.
