MIF 13 Announce Newest Act

THE latest big hitting addition to the Manchester International Festival 2013 line up has been announced today - 'Massive Attack v Adam Curtis'. 

"A musical entertainment about the power of illusion and the illusion of power." Adam Curtis.

Virtually no details are known about the collaboration save for the fact that impassioned video journalist Adam Curtis will be joining forces with the pioneering 'trip-hop' Bristolians.

The only clues given as to the form of this specially commisioned show are given in the following two cryptic quotes: 

"A collective hallucination." Robert Del Naja.

"A musical entertainment about the power of illusion and the illusion of power." Adam Curtis.

Intriguing. The event will be a world premiere with further collaboraters Felix Barrett, who worked on Curtis' previous MIF outing It Felt Like A Kiss, plus Es Devlin and UnitedVisualArtists featuring on the bill.

Performance dates for the show have been announced as: July 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 8.30pm, £36 (£31 concessions) inc booking fee but not transaction charge
