Audio exploration of the written word: In the Dark

In The Dark is a collaborative project between a new generation of radio producers and radio enthusiasts. Their aim is to create a mini-revolution in the way people think about spoken-word radio by lifting it out of its traditional settings and celebrating it in new and exciting ways. Over the last five years, they have commissioned new works from producers around the world and staged live listening events at festivals, theatres, cinemas and museums. For this special Manchester Literature Festival event, they will be presenting an audio exploration on The Written Word. From the dangerous days of Edgar Allan Poe to unseen chapters, from unusual methods of book disposal to the secrets they might hold, they’ll be bringing listening special stories and sounds – out loud and in the dark. Visit the 2014 Manchester Literature Festival website for booking details.
