Everything That Happened And Would Happen

Manchester

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
