Thomas Carter Projects is proud to have produced Neil Bartlett’s performance work TWENTY FOUR HOURS OF PEACE on Remembrance Sunday, November 10, 2019. This epic work, some 237,000 words long, commemorated the anniversary of the first ever two minutes silence in UK. The work was watched by nearly 3,000 people and listened to in live relay by over 45,000 people around the world.
Created by writer and director Neil Bartlett, this act of witness to the work of peace was staged as a marathon performance at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester and broadcast live by Resonance FM. In the course of 24 uninterrupted hours, a team of 48 artists and community members took it in turns to bring to life the testimonies of 100 modern peace-workers, as told to Neil Bartlett over the preceding year.
