To Market, To Market

Four writers celebrated the movement of people and goods through Leeds Kirkgate Market. Onyi Ekebuisi, Afshan Tariq Lodhi, Adam Lowe and Zodwa Nyoni collected stories from shoppers and stallholders to develop monologues which they performed to Saturday shoppers, then set in an online map.

“What I found interesting about this project was that at the end of our residency, my perception of the market had changed. Rather than it being this place that I walk through as a Leeds resident, it became alive with histories that I hadn’t stopped to appreciate before.” – Adam Lowe
