SICK! Festival Manchester Program

SICK! Festival was launched in 2013 as the first festival of its kind in the UK dedicated to exploring the medical, mental and social challenges of life and death and how we survive them (or don’t). SICK! presents an outstanding international, cross art-form programme featuring theatre, dance, film, public installations and debates in venues across Brighton & Hove, Manchester and Salford.

The festival seeks out new ways of talking about and dealing with the bad times that are unflinching, informed, irreverent and humane. It is a reflection on those experiences that are most personal to ufeminist take overs, but which somehow connect us all as individuals with bodies, minds and lives that sometimes go wrong.

Creative Tourist recaps on Wonder Women 2015 which launches next Thursday 5th March with In Emergency Break Glass #FeministTakeOver

From suffragette smashing windows in the gallery to a breathtaking exhibition of female surrealists, Manchester has a rich heritage of stereotype-smashing women. Yet society, and the art world, is still dominated by men.

‘In Emergency Break Glass’ brings together the North’s best emerging female contemporary artists, performers & creatives to challenge the male-dominated artistic canon, respond to the gallery’s artworks and inspire attendees.
