Machester International Festival


Every year I know it’s coming and every year I flake. The last Manchester International Festival had Kraftwerk playing in the Velodrome, Zaha Hadid creating a performance space for an orchestra…I let the whole thing pass me by, which is very unlike me! I have nailed it this time around.

Massive Attack + Tony¬†Adam Curtis (I naerly made a huge cultural slip up there!) + Felix Barrett (Punch Drunk) + UVA? That works…Tino Sehgal installation…The Machine…Rite of Spring…Matthew Barney. I feel like a kid in a sweet shop.

A biosphere in a derelict mill – I even wrote one of my dissertations on those! Tick tick tickety tick. Tickets actually on sale in 2 minutes…
