Leon Clowes - Fringe Bursary Winner
Nan Kids - The Forgotten Adoptees (St Nicholas' Church)
Sound installation foregrounding the stories of people raised by their grandmothers
At different times and various times during the festival, Leon Clowes will present audio art pieces made from the stories told by people like him: the hidden constituency of people who were raised by grandmothers. Nan Kids, as coined by Russell Brand.
Our stories are hidden. Here, some are told.
This material does deal with loss (i.e. death of parents), subjects of a sensitive nature (born to a teenage mum) and adoption/attachment.
