Manchester International Festival 2011

It's almost upon us. In previous years your humble blogger has watched performers defecate on stage, the attempt to make a real bull have intercourse with the boot of a car "by" Matthew Barney and was chased by a chainsaw-wielding, leatherfaced madman (after two and a half hours in semi-darkness) and so wound up running into a tree trunk, thanks to Adam Curtis, Damon Albarn and Punchdrunk's "It Felt Like A Kiss"... highlights this year include:

The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic

Damon Alburn's opera, Dr Dee
Punchdrunk's The Crash of the Elysium
Victoria Wood's The Day We Sang

a series of Bjork gigs, and many more events -- festival homepage here
