MIF Originals: A Podcast for All Animals
Listening time: 35 minutes
Can you imagine a world in which animals of all kinds, including humans, live together as equals?
For the final weekend of Manchester International Festival, a team of artists worked together with local children to create a zone of interspecies equality in Whitworth Park. Led by the child ambassadors, this podcast explores how we can live better alongside other animals and asks – what can we learn from them?
This is a podcast for ALL animals.
Featuring lead artist Sibylle Peters of Hamburg’s Theatre of Research and curator Lois Keidan from the Live Art Development Agency, plus contributions from artists Angela Bartram and Katharina Duve.
This podcast could not have been made without the children and animals of Manchester – a big thank you to Jonas, Amar, Abdullah, Kitty, Willem, Tabrez, Awais, Mustafa, Grace, Emmett, Martha and Dexter, Dolly, George and Diane, Archie and Sami, Carly and Tricia, Petal the cow and Cheeseburger the budgie.
Music by Martin Rach and Vicky Clarke.
Hosted by Isaiah Hull. Produced by Katie Callin.
