Presented by Word of Warning, Blank Media Collective + Z-arts
####Saturday 5 October 2013, 12noon-11pm
Manchester’s marathon micro-festival returns for its fourteenth year — the bizarre, the bold + the beautiful popping up in a plethora of spaces.
Last year we taped performers to windows, played a uniquely guttural rendition of Nessun Dorma and unearthed a viscerally prehistoric woman. This year will be an equally eclectic performance lucky-dip in two locations — your chance to sample the different and all for free.
Drop-in for ten minutes or stay for the full eleven hours — a free day-out for the curious with over twenty-five new works; featuring artists (subject to change):
Maiada aBOUD | Lindsay Bennett | Nathan Birkinshaw | Sarah Boulton | Kerry Carroll | Collective Unconscious | Dirty Shade | Drunken Chorus | Frances-Kay | Geranium Theatre Co | Paul Hurley | Lucy Hutson | Lotta SCAF | Manoli Moriaty | Paul O’Donnell | PartSuspended | Beth J Ross | Sheep Knuckle | Small Acts | Chloë Smith | lili Spain | The Same, But Different | Voris / Buchanan | Zimmermann / Singh
Plus commissioned works from Rebecca Bowley + Mike Chavez-Dawson.
Sniff out Dove — an ambient intervention by Sarah Boulton, who has invited all our participating artists to smell the same.
