This inspiring immersive show was created by Theatre-Rites , one of Europe’s most imaginative theatre companies.

The Welcoming Party took us on a thrilling journey through a historic hidden warehouse at the Museum of Science & Industry, walking alongside people who had travelled here from towns and cities far beyond Manchester, all looking for a place where they could feel safe and sound. We hoped we helped them find what they were looking for.

A beautiful blend of puppetry, performance, dance and live music for both children and family audiences, The Welcoming Party made us think about what it means to feel different – and why we should all be proud of who we are.

Co-commissioned by Manchester International Festival, Theatre-Rites, Z-Arts and the Ruhrtriennale Festival.
