Dark Matters Weekend Break Competition

26 Aug

Autumn is coming and with it the dark.

Creative Tourist have joined forces with the Whitworth Art Gallery, Royal Exchange Theatre and Mint Hotel to offer a lucky winner and a guest of their choice a readymade weekend of theatre, art and relaxation in Manchester.

The winner will be invited to an exclusive private viewing of the Whitworth Art Gallery’s new exhibition Dark Matters on Friday September 23, with an opportunity to meet the show’s curator.

Bringing together ten internationally renowned artists, whose multimedia work manipulates light and shade, Dark Matters explores ideas of illusion and memory and creates twisted art from visitor’s own shadows. These mechanical and digital installations will also be accompanied by more traditional pieces from the gallery’s own extensive archive including paintings and prints from masters like JMW Turner and Francis Bacon.

The winner will also receive a pair of tickets to see Edward II at the historic Royal Exchange Theatre on Saturday September 24. Acclaimed director Toby Frow has transformed Marlowe’s classic tale of a troubled king and his lover into a terse political thriller wreathed in smoky 50s glamour and soundtracked by a blend of jazz, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. The prize also includes a room for two for both nights complete with breakfast at Mint Hotel Manchester, outstanding boutique accommodation located in the beating heart of the city.
