An Adults-Only Event Is Coming To Manchester Science And Industry Museum

If love is the drug could culture be the cure?

Inflatable sculptures, gynaecological comedy and the healing power of laughter are just some of the activities on offer at the Science and Industry Museum’s Culture Cure Late event, on March 6.

Laughter consultant Robin Graham will explain the science behind laughter, and why it’s good for you, before participants will have their funny bones tickled in a series of ‘playful’ exercises and games.

Amy Vreeke will perform an extract from her solo comedy theatre show ‘The Year My Vagina Tried to Kill Me’, commissioned by Contact Theatre, SICK! Festival and supported by Arts Council England. The show is based on her experience of living with the disease endometriosis, as well as the ten years it took to diagnose it.

There’ll be a unique opportunity to see what goes on beneath your skin with live UV painting of a model, and visitors will be able to paint their own hands to show the bones beneath with a little help from Hull Medical School.

Artist Laurence Payot’s interactive artwork Breathing Blue will be on display, inviting visitors to wrap themselves in the sculpture and reflect on the invisible and precious substance that is air.

Musical mayhem will come courtesy of Salford Community Leisure’s bamboo tamboo workshop, while Kevin Edward Turner, artistic director of Manchester-based contemporary dance company Company Chameleon, will talk about his own experiences with mental health, his journey back into work, making the piece Witness as a cathartic experience and trying to get other people to open up about their experiences.

This event is open to adults only and is free to attend, but tickets should be booked in advance. Click here to book.
