Punchdrunk and Adam Curtis: It Felt Like a Kiss

Manchester International Festival have announced a show entitled It Felt Like A Kiss, a collaboration between the documentary-maker Adam Curtis, the theatre company Punchdrunk whose work I write about in Cyburbia, and Damon Albarn. Read more here. The show, according to Curtis, will take the form of a “haunted house walk-through about power in the world”, specifically American power in the post-war world. It will be housed in an abandoned 60s office block and will, according to Punchdrunk artistic director Felix Barrett, be in the “spirit of the great American fairground rides of the 50s and 60s.” I can’t wait.
