MANTIS Festival 2015


Continuing our collaboration with the University of Manchester’s NOVARS Research Centre, Metanast is curating the closing concert for the MANTIS Festival 2015.

The programme draws from the theme of Techno-logical extensions, with works by local and international artists showcasing a broad variety of contemporary and derelict technologies alongside an essence of electronic dance music by being set in the legendary nightclub Zoo Manchester.
