A small change in society has a much larger effect on its skyline. This new piece of music, light and performance derives from James Mabbett’s vision of composition and sound as structural, or architectural and explores the impact of the city on both individual and group happiness.

This commission was funded by Long Division with support from Arts Council England as part of our Onto The Streets project, which is directly supporting the creation of new work from predominantly Wakefield based or born artists. The aim is to create accessible experiences that encourage audiences to look at our city in a new way, and animate our streets.
