Love installation at Bridgewater Hall

Published: 27 May 2018

What Love Would Want is a music, film, photography and dance installation at the Bridgewater Hall on June 17.

There’s a free behind the scenes opportunity from 11AM to 6PM followed by live performance of music and dance, followed by a Q & A with the artists, from 7:30PM to 9PM, again it’s free, but tickets must be reserved in advance.

Performance artist Lindsay Kemp, singer songwriter Tim Arnold and photographer Andy Fallon will be creating a live, interactive display of living relationships live on stage.

There are plans to tour to other cities in the future.

The project was originally initiated in Soho where the first video for Arnold’s song was created. It was subsequently playlisted on BBC 6 Music by Tom Robinson and adopted by Amnesty International in a series of live events for their Love Is A Human Right campaign.

For this new installation, Arnold and Fallon simultaneously create a new video and photographic portraits to accompany the song, each separated by a single screen, this time, with couples from Manchester.

Couples wishing to participate should e-mail with WHAT LOVE WOULD WANT MANCHESTER in the subject line and a attach a photograph featuring both partners.

The closing date is June 1.
