Major new work – made at MIF19

We’ve invited two major artists, Laurie Anderson and Kemang Wa Lehulere, to join us in residence, presenting or creating new work that looks ahead to future Festivals and the opening of The Factory.

Fifty years after man first landed on the Moon, Laurie Anderson will be flying us all there with an expanded virtual reality work she’s currently developing with the artist Hsin-Chien Huang. To the Moon features both a VR experience and an immersive installation – and is an exciting opportunity to explore Anderson’s ideas and the type of work she’ll be premiering at The Factory.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.
