Drawing from the languages of customer service, public safety announcements and emergency protocols, Mr Jet reveals two ghostly ushers haunting the plush red seats of a disused theatre, whispering through radio static.
Mr Jet was a durational work made to be performed in the circle of N.I.A.M.O.S, a beautiful early 20th century theatre which is now a co-operative run arts and community hub in Hulme, Manchester.
