Sick Festival 2017

SICK! Festival returns to Manchester & Salford in 2017 exploring belonging and identity, trauma and well-being through an outstanding international programme featuring 14 UK Premieres, 76 artists, 46 performances, 15 public space installations, 5 discussion events and 5 new commissions.

The award-winning SICK! Festival returns to Manchester & Salford 8-25 March 2017 with a three-week programme taking place across the city and with venue partners The Lowry, HOME, the Whitworth, Contact and STUN. Featuring some of the finest and most hard-hitting new theatre, dance, film and public art from around the world, alongside fascinating debates, talks and other events, this is the most ambitious festival programme to date.

SICK! Festival explores the most turbulent experiences of living in the world today. The challenges we face are sometimes rooted in bodies and minds that fail us, sometimes in the complexities of living in a troubled society with others facing their own problems. Embracing the multitude of identities, histories and social conditions that shape us, SICK! Festival asks how we are coping with the world we live in.
