Nobody/Somebody - A Work In Development

A Belfast Children's Festival Event

Nobody/Somebody - A Work In Development

An exciting and powerful new opera created by composer Neil Martin and playwright Fionnuala Kennedy for and with teenagers and young adults around the issues of housing stress and homelessness some of the young people are facing.

See this work in development as the story meets the music and find out more about plans to fully produce this opera in 2023 with a creative team which will comprise youth counterparts, putting young people in the driving seat to tell the story of their lived experience.

Please note: as Carlisle Memorial Church is an old, listed building without heating, be sure to wrap up for this one-off performance, blankets welcome!
