Event description

Description

The School of Arts & Media is collaborating with the University of Salford Engineering Society and the Manchester Tramway Museum Society to create a touring exhibition and performances connected with the construction of a replica of a ‘Tank Tram’.

A Tank Tram is a tram ‘disguised’ as tank, used as a war bond fundraising stunt in 1916.  The stunt is being revived and the Tank Tram will travel in the region in 2016 as a focal point for a current debate about the relationship between new technology and war.

This installation will showcase Albert The Tank Tram as a focus for interdisciplinary collaboration within the University of Salford and with community performers.

03/11/2016 - Open Rehearsal of "Albert the Tank Tram". Observe and participate in the final stage of production development 

04/11/2016 - "Workshop in Performance and Design". Come and take part in a Physical Comedy workshop and a Graphic Design workshop.

05/11/2016 - "Open Talks & Walkabout Performances". Drop in to a long table discussion about the Tank Tram and Pierrots plus an afternoon performance.
