30 Days of The Smiths, by Oberman Knocks, formed part of The Lowry’s Week 53 festival
(28 April – 8 May 2016), which sought to highlight peoples’ place in the world: be that geographical, digital or as part of the international community.

Knocks’ audio soundscape which included clips from Panic, This Charming Man and
What Difference Does It Make, featured interviews with Salfordians with the surname Smith by the poet and chancellor of the University of Salford, Jackie Kay.

The work premiered on Thursday 5 May in the Week 53 festival hub, a pop-up bar and performance space known as The Dock.

Built in The Lowry scene dock – the backstage area between the arts venue’s Lyric and Quays theatres – The Dock will itself was a highlight of the Festival and featured an installation by David Shearing.

Week 53 represented a major commissioning project for The Lowry – bringing together contemporary dance, visual arts, music and theatre in interactive installations, exhibitions and performances.

It featured more than 200 international artists and 63 performances and exhibitions across the eleven days.
