Musician Damon Albarn and playwright Moira Buffini discuss turning Lewis Carroll's 19th century children's novel, Alice in Wonderland, into a 21st century musical - where it's the internet, not a rabbit hole, that leads Alice into a curious new world. Tree of Codes is the Manchester International Festival's first ballet commission. It's inspired by a book transformed into an artwork, which in turn was inspired by a collection of short stories. Choreographer Wayne McGregor, artist Olafur Eliasson, and music producer Jamie xx discuss the result of their collaboration and its shape-shifting source. At the age of 17, Merseyside-born Mark Simpson won both the BBC Young Musician of the Year and BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the year, remaining today the only person to have done so. A decade on, his first oratorio, "The Immortal", receives its world premiere at the Manchester International Festival. After a decade at the helm of the Manchester International Festival, Alex Poots, the festival's founding CEO and Artistic Director will be stepping down.
