Originally commissioned by Culture Liverpool for the EuroFestival 2023
With Fire And Rage was originally commissioned by Culture Liverpool as part of Eurovision's EuroFestival 2023.
Over 1000+ audience members walked through Liverpool, hearing stories of creative resistance at key public and cultural locations from the Liverpool Everyman to the Philharmonic.
Narratives took audiences from music concerts in metro stations during air raids, to artworks smuggled out of cities as rockets fell, to subversive street art created under Russian occupation.
All audiences needed was a smartphone and headphones to be guided step by step with maps, directions and captions.
