Rough Version

Manchester International Festival

Just got back from Manchester International Festival. Marina Abramovic (who i interview in this month's Dazed) curated and introduced an amazing gallery full of performances (esp Terence Koh, Nico Vascellari and Eunhye Hwang). Rufus Wainwright's opera was bland enough story wise to walk out midway. Punchdrunk and Adam Curtis' collaboration It Felt Like A Kiss made me remember why Adam Curtis is such a fascinating filmmaker. His series The Century of the Self is unlike anything I've ever watched. For tasters of his work see in these trailer/clip from the Manchester production below. Why isnt TV full of things like this?
