The Culture Show -- s11e01
Manchester International Festival
Wednesday 8 July 2009
7:00pm - 7:50pm
The Culture Show captures the best of the 2009 Manchester International Festival.
This programme goes behind the scenes with artist Jeremy Deller, as he gets the festival off to a bang on
Sunday July 5th. Famous for recreating the Battle of Orgreave and for fusing acid house with brass band
culture, Deller has been at work for months on a massive procession down Deansgate. Thousands are
expected to take part, in this one-off event combining art, music and protest politics.
There’s also a rare TV interview with Ralf H?tter, founder member of reclusive German electronic pioneers
Kraftwerk - and stars of a one-off concert at the Manchester Velodrome.
Lauren Laverne talks to Guy Garvey. His band Elbow are working with the original Manchester band, the
Halle Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall.
There's also a profile of the Young at Heart Choir. Made up of singers in their 70s and 80s, Young at Heart
made its name with their unique take on songs by the Clash and James Brown. The Culture Show caught
up with them rehearsing a brand new show for the Manchester Festival – End of the Road, based around
iconic Manchester songs.
Plus, Carlos Acosta prepares to perform new work at the festival, exploring the idea of the male muse in
ballet. His programme includes work by Balanchine's classic Apollo and Robbins' A Suite of Dances.
A panel of cultural critics discuss all these highlights from Manchester plus performance art from Marina
Abramovic, and a new work by German artist Gustav Metzger.
