Following the incredible run of Party Skills for the End of the World at Shoreditch Town Hall in 2018, Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari with Bethany Wells are creating an online Lockdown Special of the show for one night only! Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival.

What is a party in a locked-down world? What do you wear? What do we do? What should you bring? What do we need to know?

Three years ago, Nigel Barrett and Louise Mari from pioneering cult performance collective Shunt brought the party to end all parties to MIF17. Now, exclusively for MIF Live, they’re attempting to squeeze their genre-defying epic show into the tiny digital portal that connects all of our isolated worlds during lockdown. We invite you to join us and raise a glass to celebrate the things we’re still able to share when we are so close and yet so far away. Come and hang out, make some friends, learn some new skills – and dance like nobody’s watching…

Please note that the nature of the show means capacity is limited and admission is by ticket only – and all tickets are free. Book online here from 18 May 2020.

Commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival. Original production commissioned and produced by Manchester International Festival and Shoreditch Town Hall.
