Yoko Ono and former Another Man cover starSkepta have been announced as part of next year’s Manchester International Festival programme. Slated for July, the pair have been commissioned to present a “very personal take on how we relate to today’s world”, with Ono set to gather people in Cathedral Gardens to send a message of peace to the world, and Skepta to put on a series of intimate and immersive experiences titled Dystopia987. Describing the project as “Real Life Magic”, Dystopia987 will apparently feature performers, DJs, a range of new technology and a cast “inhabiting a hidden netherworld”.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Thursday, November 1. Head here for more information.
