Let’s Talk About It!
Themes are explored through many art forms – dance, theatre, film, spoken word – and through discussion and debate. SICK! Festival presents and commissions powerful, innovative and engaging work by artists from across Manchester, the UK and the world. We take the conversation into the heart of the communities where the subjects matter most as well as major cultural venues.
SICK! Festival has grown and evolved since 2013, emerging from reflections on our own lives and the lives of people around us to embrace issues of wider significance for communities and deep importance for individuals.
We are constantly guided by those communities and individuals, who ground our work in real-life experience, huge knowledge and immense understanding of the sensitivities of emotive issues. All too often these subjects are kept away from public view and debate. We exist to change that.
