Dominoes and Dahlias (+Oware!) @ The Den in M8

  • 29 July 2022
  • On Tour / External

Part of The Den in M8 festival.


Where can you meet a woman artist from 1922 Benin, a feisty Ghanian student nurse standing up to a blinkered matron in 1971, and a Jamaican lad going on holiday and suddenly finding himself facing a throng of brothers and sisters he never knew existed?

In a Manchester Community Garden here in the Den.

Join the Dominoes and Oware tournament, with music and food too, this is one garden party not to be missed!

DOMINOES AND DAHLIAS (+OWARE!) has been created with older people from the African and African Caribbean diaspora led by artist Cheryl Martin with musician Clive Hunte.

After two successful performances at the Royal Exchange Theatre Studio, DOMINOES AND DAHLIAS (+OWARE!) is back for a performance in the Den in Cheetham Hill.
