Theatre, film, visual art exhibitions and dance productions will all be part of the programme for the opening season of HOME.
HOME, formed by the merger of the Cornerhouse and Library Theatre Company, will kick off its programme with a dance performance by Hofesh Shechter & Friends in April ahead of the opening weekend on May 21.
Other landmark performances will include the world premiere of The Funfair, an adaptation by Simon Stephens of Kasimir and Karoline by Ödön von Horváth directed by HOME’s artistic director for theatre Walter Meierjohann; the UK premiere of Inkheart, based on the novel by Cornelia Funke; and group exhibition The heart is deceitful above all things which picks up on the theme of the funfair.
There will also be a co-commission with the Manchester International Festival; a music and film series pairing Manchester musicians including Go Go Penguin and Robin Richards with silent film and archive footage; and visiting productions from companies such as the Young Vic, Kneehigh, the Rosie Kay Dance Company, 1927 and Nanterre-Amandiers.
HOME, First Street.
