20 September 2011

The success of the Abandon Normal Devices (AND) festival has been steamrolling since its launch in Liverpool in 2009. Remember that Kazimier party, the newly commissioned artwork by Apichatpong Weerasethakul (which led to the film Uncle Boonmee and a Palme'd'Or win!, or the hilarious opening night film Humpday? They were just a handful of our highlights. 

This year, the AND festival wants to believe! AND 2011 brings together a vast range of artists who make it their job to question our beliefs in a time where it has never been more relevant as belief systems around the world seem to be in collapse.

The line up is as varied as it is thought provoking. From David Shrigley giving people tattoos on Bold Street, to Brody Condon's Level Five performance that will push the boundaries of self-actualization, and AND 2011 is full of extraordinary experieces.

The festival will run in Liverpool from 29 September - 02 October. For details of the full programme, visit the AND website and watch this space for more of our highlights.
