  • About the show
  • Creative team

The charismatic, uncategorisable FKA twigs journeyed to Manchester for a ten-day residency at MIF15. On each of the first seven days, FKA twigs and her team of collaborators created and filmed a new dance-based performance piece in which the artist explored a narrative from her own life. Audiences were admitted in groups of just 20 to watch the creative process in action. Then, on the final Friday and Saturday nights of the Festival, the artist performed five very special shows in an intimate space at Old Granada Studios – one of the Festival’s hottest tickets. Those who couldn’t attend Soundtrack 7 in person were able to follow the work via Inside Soundtrack 7, a specially commissioned digital project that offered a unique insight into FKA twigs’ working methods.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival and The Space. Produced by Manchester International Festival.
