About

Salisbury Cathedral, The Close, SP1 2EF

Saturday 29 October 2022 at 7.30pm  

CONGRESS  

Created by All The Queens Men  

 

A citizens’ assembly.  

A series of first speeches from voices often unheard.  

Personal visions for our collective future.  

The international premiere of this remarkable event will see members of our community make their very first public speeches, reflecting on their hopes and dreams for the future, in a special staging at the heart of Salisbury Cathedral. The speakers have been specially invited to represent the diversity of our city and have collaborated with professional wordsmiths to craft their first speeches, which will be interspersed with dance and movement performances. Acknowledging the world’s seismic experiences across the past two years, Congress is shared just for this place and shared once, just for this time, a new time.   

Based in Naarm/ Melbourne, Australia, All The Queens Men is an independent arts organisation founded by acclaimed artists Tristan Meecham and Bec Reid. All The Queens Men collaborate with communities of all shapes, sizes and identities to produce transformative creative experiences that champion equality, social health, and human connection. Their projects have been presented globally. 

  

Running Time: 80 mins
