Party Skills for the End of the World was created especially for MIF17 by Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari of cult theatre collective Shunt, and delivered in collaboration with the people of Greater Manchester. Party Skills for the End of the World was a wild, immersive show that showed us how to get by when the end comes and it’s time to celebrate everything that’s made life worth living.

Staged in a unique Salford building, Party Skills… was made possible by the help of a very special team of 75 Party Skillers teaching audiences a variety of unusual skills to help them prepare for the apocalypse.

This site-specific show was full of surprises, taking you on a wild ride into the depths of your imagination before sending you out into the night full of curiosity and wonder.
