On MIF21’s opening night, join us for a daring new dance work designed for Deansgate by French choreographer Boris Charmatz – and featuring more than 150 Greater Manchester residents among the cast. Sea Change is a huge human jigsaw, and it’s down to you to put together the pieces and complete the picture.
Sea Change will fill Deansgate with a chain of professional and non-professional dancers, each performing and repeating a section of choreography. Rather than the work moving on in front of you, it’ll be up to you to ‘move on’ the work: walking or even running past waves of dancers to animate the action into your very own living flipbook.
Created especially for the Festival, Sea Change is a unique and captivating response to the pandemic – a joyous celebration of togetherness in a post-lockdown world, and the warmest welcome back to your city and your Festival. Join us!
‘Designed as both a large festive gathering and a work of art, Sea Change works on two levels: viewers will perceive a single organism, one single continuous movement made by the many, and each participant singularly embodying the piece.’ – Boris Charmatz
Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
