Manchester International Festival leads the charge on UK cross-continental collaboration and curated showcases

Manchester International Festival will take over the city centre of one of the UK's most creative and inspiring places with a vast programme of the best in UK and international arts, collaboration and curation.

The lineup, which takes place 4-23 July, is a daring selection of diverse works, including world premieres and unique collaborations.

Manchester International Festival produces new work at its biennial festival which often goes on to tour the world. A recent example is Studio Wayne McGregor's Tree of Codes from MIF 2015 currently being performed in France in collaboration with the Paris Opera Ballet, in a production with a soundscape by Jamie xx and a mirror set crafted by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson.
