Manifesto, starring Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, pays homage to the moving tradition and literary beauty of artistic manifestos.

Drawing on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situtationists, Dogma 95 and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers, 'Manifesto' ultimately questions the role of the artist in society today.

Performing these ‘new manifestos’ as a contemporary call to action, while inhabiting thirteen different personas – among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a newsreader, a factory worker and a homeless man – Cate Blanchett imbues new dramatic life into both famous and lesser-known words in unexpected contexts.

“Cate Blanchett is astonishing in Bravura character study" - The Guardian ★★★★
