Water Seeds Not Stones combines traditional storytelling and performance art through the post-modern character of Mamamawodi. Inspired by the mobile street sellers of Manchester’s Market Street, he’s a hawker, a bookworm, a street peddler, a traveler, a storyteller, an activist and a gardener librarian.

Conjouring visions while enduring real-world interruptions from her majesty’s border agency, our trickster takes us on a journey across continents to the heart of soft power.
