Ceremony, our latest production for BBC4, directed by visual artist Phil Collins, charts the journey of a statue of Friedrich Engels from a remote village in Northern Ukraine to Tony Wilson Place in Manchester's City Centre.  Engels wrote The Condition of the Working Classes, in Manchester in 1844, and the installation of the statue (the closing event of the Manchester International Festival 2017) celebrates this.  Featuring music by Mica Levi and Demdike Stare, and a specially composed song by Gryff Rhys of Super Furry Animals.
