Featuring productions hailing from Russia to the USA, from Scotland to Singapore, and many countries in between, the programme for MANIPULATE 2015 was the largest yet. Including an expanded animated films programme with screenings of films made in collaboration with Martyn Bennett and award-winning animated shorts; an increased number of SNAPSHOTS: ARTISTS@WORK events focusing on new Scottish work in development, and performances from a great range established and emerging international artists, the 8th edition of MANIPULATE pushed at the boundaries not only of visual theatre and animated film, but of the festival itself.
