Cathy's Highlights from MIF19

13.08.19

In July, Cathy headed to Manchester International Festival, here's her highlights from its seventh year:

"It’s an odd year. It was July. No better place to visit than Manchester International Festival for the 7th edition of the festival of world premieres.

Having worked on the first six Festivals, it was a great pleasure to be asked to do the tiniest of jobs for #MIF19, so The Cogency keeps its record of having worked on every Festival.

I didn’t take any photos in the shows so I swiped some of these from the @MIF Live site – a genius collaboration with the BBC - where you can still enjoy many of the performances: https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/exz3v2/live/cgrp5v

Here’s a pictorial record of my top 5 (plus 1); shows that I loved and would willing travel to other parts of the country / globe to see again. It was truly an extraordinary (6 out of) 18 days, for me."
