World Premiere

Everything that happened and would happen

A new work by Heiner Goebbels

Book tickets
Created by the singular German artist and composer Heiner Goebbels and receiving its world premiere in Manchester as part of 14-18 NOW, this Artangel co-commission explores Europe since the outbreak of the first great war of the 20th century: a contradictory, non-linear world lurching from the crisis of conflict to the promise of peace as 100 years pass by.

Part-performance, part-construction site, Everything that happened and would happen is a re-enactment of history, always on the verge of collapse – only to be rebuilt as if nothing had happened.

Featuring 20 performers and musicians, this new work brings together live music, performance, sound, movement and image on the site of Mayfield, a former railway station in Manchester.

Produced by Artangel. Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, Artangel, Park Avenue Armory and Ruhrtriennale.
The world premiere is co-presented by Artangel and Manchester International Festival as a pre-Factory event, for its new world-class arts space, The Factory, being developed in Manchester.

• Please bring or wear warm clothing as the building may be cold.
