01 - 07 October/ Manchester

Following last year's first Abandon Normal Devices (AND) festival in Liverpool, and the happenings in Cumbria over Easter, AND - a collaboration between FACT, Cornerhouse and Folly -has reached Manchester!

The festival is a hybrid experiment of cinema, performance and media art and this year features human shrink-wraps, radioactive carnivals, body scanners, Marxist pop-artists and urine harvesters! 

AND is a festival that promises to be a feast for curious minds and disillusioned spirits! Click here to go to the AND website for more information.
