New Order to Perform at MIF17 IN COLLABORATION WITH LEADING VISUAL ARTIST
It has been announced that New Order will take over Stage 1 of Manchester’s Old Granada Studios for MIF17 – Manchester International Festival – for a series of intimate performances created in collaboration with visual artist Liam Gillick.
This MIF world premiere will see New Order deconstructing, rethinking and rebuilding a wealth of material from across their career for audiences of just 1200 a night. Inspired by this reinvention of the band’s catalogue, Liam Gillick will be transforming the historic space into an immersive environment, creating a stage set that responds dynamically to the music.
Also at MIF17 is True Faith, a major new exhibition celebrating the legacy of Joy Division and New Order through the wealth of visual art their music has inspired.
The band will play alongside a 12-strong synthesiser ensemble from the Royal Northern College of Music with Mancunian composer Joe Duddell conducting and providing the orchestrations.
The gigs will take place on Thursday 29 June, Saturday 1, Thursday 6, Thursday 13 and Saturday 15 July 2017 at 8pm. For more information, click here.
