Underscore is an interactive digital experiment that disrupts the silent power structures of public space through live writing and projection of personal statements with real-time observations.

Set against the backdrop of the Emmeline Pankhurst statue in St Peter’s Square, artists Lisa Mattocks, Lowri Evans and poet Molly Twomey will invite three generations of women to go undercover and live report on everything they see and hear as the sky turns black. They will ask and answer questions about what keeps them awake at night, what they wished they’d said and what it all means, turning the tables on who gets to be seen and who gets to watch.

Join us in person and online from 9.30pm in a moment of mass observation, of reclaiming space, and taking back the night.

No booking required: gather outside Manchester Central Library in St Peter’s Square between 9.30pm and midnight.
