MIF17: What if Women Ruled the World? at Mayfield Depot at Depot Mayfield, Manchester 5 — 8 July 2017 Tickets from £12.00 — Book now

At the end of his remarkable film Dr Strangelove, Stanley Kubrick foresaw a post-apocalyptic future in which dominant male leaders would repopulate the Earth, with ten women allocated to every man. Half a century later, Yael Bartana’s groundbreaking film and theatre project imagines the opposite scenario, giving women control of a world in desperate need of a new vision.

Each night, a group of 10 women and one man will be confronted by some of the urgent crises of our time: climate change, military escalation, mass migration. In this brand new work created by Bartana, with the performance directed by Vicky Featherstone, a professional cast will be joined by a group of female experts: scientists, politicians, artists and thinkers of global reputation. Together, they’ll spend the evening trying to solve that night’s global emergency as the clock ticks above them…
