Equal parts poet, musician, film-maker and visual artist, Hackney’s Kojey Radical has been making major waves in his native city with a series of incredibly explosive singles, most recently the dark, defiant Gallons. Seamlessly blending the intimately personal with the fiercely political, Kojey is a compelling and passionate live performer, and we’re thrilled to be presenting the first major Manchester show by one of the country’s hottest young rising stars. In support, a set from BBC Radio 6 Music DJ and Dark Matter curator Mary Anne Hobbs.
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.
