Emergency is our annual platform for live art + contemporary performance, featuring at least 20 short pieces of work over a day/evening in Manchester…

Our eighteenth Emergency took place on Saturday 30 September 2017 (12noon-10pm) in Manchester’s Z-arts, including STUN Studio; see our gallery of images from the event.

To get a feel for it, have a look at 2016’s image gallery + programme, or delve further with 2015’s gallery + programme and 2014’s gallery + programme.

Emergency is:
• a free, public micro-festival + open submission platform;
