The first collected works of Hannah Nicklin: a writer, game designer and performance maker experimenting with social engaged practices and storytelling in contemporary performance. This collection brings together three pieces made in collaboration with a series of other artists, musicians and people in the street, from 2012 to 2015. There is an introduction and commentary on each performance text, plus additional materials provided by collaborators, expanding and reflecting on the work, and how each piece was made.
