6-18 July 2013
Chetham’s School of Music, Manchester (residency) & the Ritz, Manchester (one-off gig)
19-29 March 2014 at Park Avenue Armory, New York, NY, USA
Jamie xx created the music for Tree of Codes at MIF15
One of Britain’s most critically acclaimed bands, The xx played 18 of their smallest shows in a secret location underneath the city – each show had an audience of just 60 people. Technically complex yet emotionally direct, the shows were an extraordinary experience for all involved. As a spectacular counterpoint to this exclusive residency, the band also played a one-off show at the Ritz in front of a 1,500-strong capacity crowd.
‘Even on a normal stage, The xx make an audience feel like eavesdroppers. Here, they make you feel like royalty’ The Mail on Sunday
Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
