One of the best things about BarCampManchester2 was having the event at Contact and having some of the contact community come along. It brought the arts and performances to design, development and the internet. Inspired by the clashes at BarCamp and generally the mainstream adoption of the internet comes #followme.
A new performance online and on stage starring Contact Young Actors Company. Directed by Baba Israel. Created by the Company, Baba Israel and YOU! Supported by BarCampManchester and Adaptavist.
For the past several weeks, people from all around the world have been submitting pictures, poems, video and audio clips, stories and more via Twitter and Facebook - all of which will be a part of this unique interactive theatre experience...and you can still take part...
During every performance there will be a live Twitter feed that the actors will respond to - simply post a message with the hashtag #follow_me between 7pm and 9pm GMT on Wed 16 to Sat 19 December, then sit in the audience and see your 140 characters brought to life live on stage
Tickets: £10/6/FreeAct and the whole thing takes place at Contact, Oxford Road, Manchester M15 6JA. Bookings number: 0161 274 0600
