Musician and producer Chris Clark has built a peerless body of work over the last decade and a half, covering everything from TV soundtracks and art installations to eight albums for the ever-influential Warp Records. Now based in Berlin, Clark rarely plays live in Manchester, making this one-off MIF17 exclusive, featuring two dancers and choreography from Melanie Lane, a must-see for fans of his dark, dystopian and restlessly inventive electronica. The evening opens with a DJ set from Manchester post-bass heroes Indigo and Synkro, collectively known as Akkord.
Curated by Mary Anne Hobbs for MIF17, Dark Matter is eight immersive shows from pioneering national, international and Manchester-based musicians.
Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
