What’s on > What’s on in February

Awards season is upon us and on our screens this month, we present Oscar-nominees for Best Picture, Moonlight, Fences and Lion, and Best Film in a Foreign Language, Toni Erdmann. If that wasn’t enough, our Journey to Italy season celebrates Federico Fellini’s 1957 and 1975 Best Film in a Foreign Language winners La Strada and Amarcord, and we also welcome BFI re-releases of 1991 Best Picture winner, Goodfellas and 1977 Best Picture nominee Taxi Driver.

In our gallery, we’re getting musical with John Hyatt – artist, professor and one third of infamous 1980s post-punk band, The Three Johns. Hyatt’s new exhibition Rock Art pulls together influences from a wide and wonderful range of topics, and spin-off music event Club Big introduces the best breakthrough live music every Friday from 18:00 – 21:00 until the exhibition closes in March.

On stage, Olivier Award-winning company Boy Blue Entertainment make their debut here at HOME with the northern premiere of a brand new hip hop dance triple bill, Blak Whyte Gray, while Manchester School of Theatre present Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield.
