“Are you a man? Were you born in Manchester? Do you belong here?”
What appear to be three closed questions, requiring a yes/no answer can in fact be unpacked and answered in surprising and even conflicting ways.
Electronic musician Andrew James Brooks will use recordings of answers to these questions to produce Yes Man, a choral work that points a lens on gender identities, home and belonging.
During Push 2019 you’ll be able to download and listen to the commissioned work here on the website.
Yes Man is a new piece of work commissioned by HOME especially for Push Festival 2019.
