HOW IT WORKS
You are at Manchester Piccadilly Railway Station - You are wearing headphones - You are with a group all wearing headphones - The stations is crowded, people rushing everywhere - You can hear someone speaking in your headphones. She is telling you a story - The reader of the story is somewhere in the crowd, she is reading the story now, it's live - You try to pick her out from the crowd - Eventually she comes into view - She continues to tell the story. She talks to rail travelers around her. They don't know she is telling a story. They don't know she is transmitting live - They don't know about us - This is story telling with a difference - This is performance with a difference - This is Station Stories
