This weekend me and Ben headed to Manchester, the aim was to see the new Punchdrunk theatre company offering, documentary by Adam Curtis and music composed by Damon Albarn and performed by the Kronos Quartet.
This is also the home of my cousin so we got to see her too which was a bonus. Not only did we have these 2 things to look forward to but also that 6 other Luton buddies as well as 3 of the bath crew would also be in the city. Luton gang to see "It Felt Like a Kiss", Bath lot to see Anthony and the Johnsons.
After having a lovely glass of Rose and some grub we all headed off to see the production. Not really knowing what to expect I felt a little nervous as I had read a few things about it being a little unnerving. This was very true. An utterly brilliant experience improved by being there with some wonderful people.
If your idea of a good time is being creeped out, depressed by images and text, not having a clue what's going on and then getting scared sh**less, then this is something for you.
If you would like to read some stuff that Charlie Brooker said about it have a look here.
