Type: Festival



2007 Nov 20 (has start date) ; 2007 Nov 21 (has end date)


The second Vital Festival organised by the Chinese Art Centre looked at the relationship between the artist and audience with performances by Chinese performance artists from around the world. The performances took place in the Centre as well as in a marquee behind the building and on the streets of Manchester. Each day was followed by a dinner with the artist which was open to visitors at the festival. 

The first day featured a round table discussion with the artists, as well as performances from Rosa Mei, Lee Wen, Yingmei Duan, Jason Lim, He Chengyao, Leung Po-shan, and Hao Lang. 

The second day featured performances by Becky Ip, Zhou Bin, He Chengyao, Yadong Hao, Jenevieve Chang and Lushan Lui. 

During the festival artists Marcus Young, Brendan Fan and Poshui were creating work, interventions and responses to the other performances.
