@MIFestival presents BREATHE 2 @manchesteryz in Harpurhey on Saturday

MIF (Manchester International Festival) present BREATHE 2 at Manchester Youth Zone in Harpurhey this Saturday, 10th November from 7pm.


BREATHE is a dance and spoken word competition in which pairs of dancers and poets battle against each other, performing duets that showcase their complimentary styles whilst telling a single story.

“BREATHE builds on the success of FlexN Manchester, a street dance show for MIF15 which featured dancers from Manchester and Reggie ‘Regg Roc’ Gray’s native New York, which Manchester Evening News described as “Powerful, accessible, fun but also thought provoking, FlexN Manchester is poetry in motion”. In MIF17, Reggie’s FlexN residency introduced a collaboration with spoken word collective Young Identity, which brought together local dancers and spoken word artists to explore the exciting relationship between the two art forms”, writes Ciaron MIF’s Cultural Connector.

“This is the second in our BREATHE series after the success of first event which took place in April in Hulme, click here to watch the footage. Join us on Sat 10 November at Manchester Youth Zone for the next edition” adds Ciaron..

BREATHE is part of MIF’s year round activity, working with the people of Manchester to connect the Festival to their locality and opportunities to develop their skills. To find out how to take part in future events contact MIF’s Cultural Connector Ciaron at ciaron.wilkinson@mif.co.uk or 0161 876 4547

BREATHE is produced by Manchester International Festival in association with The D.R.E.A.M. Ring, Young Identity and The Dolores Louise Community Organisation.”
