Animals of Manchester (including HUMANZ) was an interactive Live Art experience created by Sibylle Peters (Theatre of Research) and LADA for the Manchester International Festival 2019 which posed questions about the relationship between humanz and non-human animals.
Taking place over the Festival’s final weekend, audiences were invited to follow a trail through Whitworth Park and Gallery, and take part in all kinds of animal encounters. Across a series of installations and performances, children, families and adults alike explored their relationships with fellow species, and were invited to become a citizen of our alternative city, and share ideas on how to improve relationships between species.
This critical response was written by Maddy Costa and Mary Paterson and commissioned by LADA.
