Celebrate International Non-Binary People’s Day with a creative lock-in at Contact

In celebration of International Non-Binary People’s Day on 14 July, Contact and Manchester International Festival are bringing together three local, non-binary artists to create a new piece of work – and you’re invited to the sharing!

This year, Contact celebrates its 50-year anniversary. So, the artists will have 50 hours to make their new piece. During the 50-hour lock-in in the Contact building, our local non-binary trio will be given a brief from the award-winning international artist, Danez Smith. They’ll then share this new work with a live audience.

Following the performance of their new piece, audiences will experience a live reading from Danez and a post-show discussion with Contact’s Artistic Director and CEO, Keisha Thompson, to spill all those juicy secrets from their time in the Contact castle.
