Damon and Jamie's new work
for MIF 2011 and London 2012 Festival
Albarn has collaborated with Jamie Hewlett and theatre
Norris to work on a production which will premiere at
Manchester International Festival 2011. The
production, which is supposedly
opera based on the life of John Dee, is co-commissioned with English National Opera
and London 2012 Festival.
In the summer of 2012, the same work will
be part of the
London 2012 Festival which consists of over 1,000 events celebrating the Olympic Games. Africa Express
is also part of the festival; 'the express' will travel
through the UK in September 2012 (more details on the
Africa Express [link down] website).
Full details about Damon, Jamie and Rufus'
project will be revealed at the
Festival programme launch in March 2011.
