  • Venue: Quays Theatre
The Lowry’s autumn programme of digital art includes a live performance by two European artists at the top of their game. These digital artists rarely appear outside the international festival scene, so we are delighted to welcome them as part of a new and permanent strand of our programme. 

‘Centaure’ is a live audio & video performance by Franck Vigroux (music) & Kurt d'Haeseleer (video) 

‘Centaure’ is a postdigital road trip to a dystopic future. It’s a virtual 'safari’ to a world populated by cloned creatures and mutations of species that seem to have been artificially rebuilt from contaminated DNA. 

Man has disappeared, absorbed by technology, which has become anthropomorphic. Everything breathes, smells, rot, transforms ... The grass, the trees, the water, the clouds, everything is contaminated with a barely visible, but omnipresent technology. Human flesh has exploded and has morphed with machines to give birth to a perverted new nature.
