Thanasis Deligiannis

Monday 03 June 2019 to Sunday 09 June 2019

Created by the singular German artist and composer Heiner Goebbels and receiving its world premiere in Manchester as part of 14-18 NOW, this Artangel co-commission explores the world since the outbreak of the first great war of the 20th century: a contradictory, non-linear world lurching from the crisis of conflict to the promise of peace as 100 years pass by. Voices, bodies, objects and music fill the void in a compulsive attempt to restore order.

Part-performance, part-construction site, Everything That Happened and Would Happen is a re-enactment of history, always on the verge of collapse –only to be rebuilt as if nothing had happened

Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, Artangel, Park Avenue Armory and Ruhrtriennale. The world premiere is co-presented with Manchester International Festival as a Trailblazer for The Factory.
