SICK! International Arts Festival 2013

SICK! is an ambitious, international, cross-art form festival that seeks out new ways of talking about and dealing with the experience of sickness of all kinds: physical, mental, ethical and spiritual.
A diverse and outstanding programme of performance, dance, film, online projects and debates will bring together international artists, medical practitioners and people for whom sickness is an urgent, present reality.
SICK! is about how our bodies and minds can act against us and against society’s expectations of what is normal. It is about understanding and taking back control.
The programme includes shows by: Bobby Baker (UK), Yann Marussich (CH), Martin O’Brien (UK), Bambie (NL), Kazuko Hohki (UK), Giulio D’Anna (IT/NL), the vacuum cleaner (UK) and films by Michael Haneke (AUT), Joachim Lafosse (BEL) and Amr Salama (Egypt).
