As part of Remembrance commemorations at IWM North, IWM are working with ThickSkin theatre company to premiere a brand-new performance that will "break" the two-minute silence at 11.02am.
Taking place in IWM North's Main Exhibition Space, young people aged 14 - 18 will premiere a brand-new performance exploring what contemporary Remembrance means to them. The performance will include song, movement and video installation.
By working with young people on performances like Breaking the Silence, IWM can share different perspectives, helping both participants and visitors to explore their own views on Remembrance. The views expressed throughout the performance are those of the young people themselves. IWM is committed to hearing and sharing perspectives from a diverse range of voices.
Please assemble at IWM North before 11am to experience the full commemoration service and Breaking the Silence performances.
