It’s 1993 and my 8th birthday. We’ve not long moved to the estate, there’s a carpet rolled up alongside one wall ready to be laid. I like it here, we have a garden and my room has jazzy wallpaper. We go to the cinema to watch Jurassic Park and then to McDonalds for burgers and ice cream. We walk there through the park and get the 137 on the way back home…

Estate is a solo performance work that explores notions of home, memory, neighbourhood and our attachment to the lived structures that surround us. An alternative storytelling spanning 20 years, you are guided through the streets of The Hillock Estate in Whitefield by way of the 11 bus stops that exist within it.

Natalie Lee is an emerging artist specialising in installation and solo performance. She is currently studying for her PhD at The University of Hull researching the use of contemporary arts practices within social housing.
