We’re gearing up for Hazard. We’ve checked the weather, got the gps tracker, sound-recorder, camera and crucially pen and paper. We (Dani, Gisele and Sarah) will be reflecting back here on this blog, on what we see, hear and take part in and especially listening out for how people in Manchester respond to the work.

It’s from 12 til 5pm this Saturday, 12.7.14. It’s the fifth outing for this micro-festival taking place in Manchester City Centre.

Artists presenting work include:

Antje Hildebrandt | Bingo Meg + Disco Jazz | Hanna Rohn + Signhild Wærsted | Harald Smykla | Hidden Track | Institute for Crazy Dancing | Kris Canavan | Leo Burtin | Martin Hamblen | Natasha Vicars | Nicola Canavan | No more Page 3 | Oliver Palmer | Rachel Ramchurn | Stephen Donnelly | Stephen Sheehan | The Association Of Low Visibility Workers | Top Joe | Tracy Lumpkin

Interactions launches today! An artist development project led by a group of 5 experienced artists who make socially-engaged performance work and are based across the North West and in Yorkshire. To get involved in the programme, follow this blog (which provides a platform for reportage and debate on socially-engaged performance practice) and come to the two public Mini-symposiums on themes and issues currently arising from this key area of contemporary practice. These discursive and practice-focussed events will be held at:

  • The Bluecoat, Liverpool—Interactions Mini-Symposium #1  Fri 19.9.14         4.30—6.30pm
  • Yorkshire Dance, Leeds—Interactions Mini-Symposium #2  Weds 8.10.14    6.30—8.30pm

 Hazard Dani, Gisele and Sarah will be at Hazard on Saturday (12.7.14) investigating responses and reactions to the programme of work being seen in Manchester city centre. Hazard is ‘the biennial micro-festival of incidental intervention and sited performance, which blurs the boundaries between art and activism…’ Kris Canavan Hazard - 600 Image credit: Kris Canavan and Word of Warning
