Manchester Academy 1, Manchester, North West, United Kingdom
Leading authors from Chile, Croatia, Iceland, Japan, Kenya, Martinique and Palestine will perform new works for Studio Créole, a new performance work curated by award-winning author Adam Thirlwellin collaboration with Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Co-commissioned by MIF and Carriageworks, Sydney, Studio Créole will have its world premiere at Manchester Academy 1 from 12–14 July, performed in a specially designed structure by international architect Rem Koolhaas.
The seven authors have been commissioned to write seven new short stories, which they will read aloud in their original language to a live audience. The stories will be simultaneously translated into English and interpreted by an actor on stage, resulting in a unique live performance that explores language, interpretation and globalisation.
