With One Voice International Arts Festival

  • Ella Marshall

Associate Producer for the closing performance of With One Voice International Arts Festival. 'Man On Bench Fairytale' is an immersive catwalk opera that puts performance and fashion in the hands of the most vulnerable in our society. Over 65% of those involved in the production had lived experiences of homelessness. I facilitated a series of costume making workshops with our community partners at the Mustard Tree, in collaboration with volunteers from Manchester School of Art. The costumes for the performance were made from recycled fabric and goods. I managed the stage and volunteer co-ordination during the performance. This included organising photographers and videographers to document the process.
