The Culture Show -- s11e02
Manchester International Festival
Wednesday 15 July 2009
7:00pm - 7:50pm
Miranda Sawyer presents from the Manchester International Festival.
The show looks at the collaboration between award-winning film-maker Adam Curtis, theatre company
Punchdrunk, and Damon Albarn. It Felt Like a Kiss tells the story of dark dreams and desires in 1960s
America. The unique theatrical event unfolds over 5 floors of a deserted multi-storey office block and
blends documentary footage with fairground ghost train horrors.
Art critic Alastair Sooke puts himself through a four-hour live art experience curated by artist Marina
Abramovic at the Whitworth Gallery. Zaha Hadid converts the Manchester Art Gallery into a new
chamber music hall for the solo works of Bach, and there is a performance by violinist Alina Ibragimova.
Rufus Wainwright talks about his first opera, Prima Donna - a collaboration with Opera North - which
gets its world premiere on 10 July 2009; and a panel of cultural critics debate the highlights of this week’s
Manchester festival offerings, including a special collaboration between Elbow and the Halle Orchestra.
All that plus Film Club with Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo. With school term finishing for summer,
Kermode and Mayo discuss school movies.
