CYA@HOME presents

A Generation Rising

“We are the ones we have been waiting for.” June Jordan

It’s 2018, and we live in a rapidly changing world. We are the Generation Rising, the future leaders. We want to take you on a journey, and show you how it could be.

Welcome to our world, there is a place for you here.

Intertwining biographical narratives, visual performance, live music and audio soundscapes; this performance offers a generous and honest account of the lives and experiences of a collective of young people living in Manchester.

Inspired by an exploration of personal difference, this intimate and powerful performance centres around the stories and voices of a young company, fuelled by moments of heart-break, politics and uplifting wisdom.

This living piece is an utterly sincere definition of beauty in an imperfect world. CYA@HOME courageously share their stories to inspire a hopeful vision for our future.

This is a generation rising.

CAN Young Artists (CYA)@HOME are a company of performers aged 13-18 formed through a partnership project between Community Arts North West and HOME. This is the company’s third performance at HOME following the success of What’s Done is Done, and The Snow Dragons performed as part of National Theatre Connections Festival 2017.

Shortlisted for Best Performance at the Manchester Culture Awards 2019.
