No Such Thing – the distance edition, online, 6 May–15 July 2020, free entry - Visit now

Hosted by Quarantine, a Manchester-based award-winning theatre and performance company – who have had their name for the past 21 years – No Such Thing – The Distance Edition is an online version of an event that usually happens monthly in a curry café in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

It’s about the familiar pleasure of sharing food and the art of conversation – simple things we’re all missing right now.

For each event, Quarantine creates a menu of questions and topics to choose from. Talk about what’s happening in the world, in our lives and stuff that’s on our minds.

Talk, eat, say goodbye. That’s it.

No Such Thing – The Distance Edition will take place online on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month until it can return to the Northern Quarter café. The conversations are one-to-one over Zoom or Skype, lasting half an hour, between 12 noon and 2:45pm.

To be part of the conversation follow the link below and contact Quarantine for availability. First come, first served.

Quarantine have been making theatre, performance and public events from their Manchester home since 1998. Leaders in contemporary performance, they are known for their bold and intimate works that create the circumstances for conversations between strangers.
