What didn’t you do to bury me? But you forgot that I was a seed

Collaboration with dance and movement artist Akeim Toussaint Buck.

Chapeltown – a place with endless stories and intrigue

We have been hearing the histories of the elderly and building futures with the children, and through an innovative guided walk we invite the audience to experience this unique place from different perspectives. Exploring themes of home, migration, regeneration and resilience, the guided walk combines movement and dance, visual art, poetry, and games and surprises for the audience to get involved in.

Successive immigrant communities have shaped the unique culture and heritage of Chapeltown. ‘What didn’t you do to bury me? But you forgot that I was a seed’ seeks to reveal and unite cross-generational experience and create a legacy with the community of Chapeltown.

Commissioned by Union 105 / East Street Arts, with additional funding from Leeds Inspired
