Words Ailis Mara

Over the past 7 days FKA Twigs has been performing a unique residency at the Manchester’s Old Granada Studios, as part of the Manchester International Festival. Each day has see a totally new dance performance created and rehearsed by Twigs, plotted in real-time by a newly made Tumblr.

The residency has seen her thrown in the deep end, linking current work with material dating back as far as ten years ago. Twigs said in a statement that: “I want to present all of the dancers for the physical artists that they are in an athletic way, rather than what would be pleasing with a commercial aesthetic… flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle, and a live movement, no air brushing, no frills”.
