    DescriptionHow do we care in the 21st Century? What can be automated and what needs a human touch? Inspired by University of Manchester research, Hidden is a site specific, immersive show over three floors, made with young carers and exploring the future of caring. It is an intimate experience which challenges people to decide what the future should look like.

    Hidden began as a response to research published by The University of Manchester which found that young carers, whilst wanting and needing help and support, also asked to be recognised and valued for the ways in which they respond to problems, manage the demands of caring and have developed expertise in managing illness and disability.
