Every day from 10 – 15 Nov 2014, internationally acclaimed band Everything Everything take over Manchester’s Central Library as they present Chaos to Order, a week of curated events and experiments spanning music, theatre, literature, dance, comedy, and the indefinable, to challenge perceptions and test the limits of what a 21st century library can be.
“As a band we see Manchester Central Library as the brain of the city; the place where a vast collection of often contradictory interpretations reside and are presented impartially. When we discussed these thoughts with other artists whom we admire, the ideas snowballed and the result is a vibrant ‘chaotic’ week of extraordinary occurrences and performances that will bring the audience into the action.” Everything Everything
Everything Everything will, in public view, compose new songs that directly respond to the iconic Grade II listed building; and both collaborators and library users with a range of free drop-in and ticketed events that will engage with all who enter.
The week will culminate on Sat 15 Nov 2014 in a free performance where Everything Everything will showcase their new compositions in the unique surrounds of Central Library as well as playing snippets from their forthcoming album. The finale event will be interspersed with performances from their artist collaborators throughout the week-long residency.
