The Gifting was the closing event of the Year Of Culture. Directed by Alan Lane and Kully Thiarai, and co-produced with Slung Low and The British Library, with original music by Rash Dash and design by Keith Khan, the show was a story-telling ceremony about the past, present and future. Audiences came to Leeds film studios- Versa Studios- in Holbeck and put on headphones to experience this immersive theatre performance based around 12 stories inspired by the Year of Culture, some of which originated from the Northern Dreaming book.
