HOME will move into non-existent films when it launches Live Cinema UK’s The Unfilmables. This new series challenges composers to create soundtracks for films that never reached the screens, with the first Unfilmables on May 6 featuring electronic supergroup Wrangler and Oscar nominated producer Mica Levi. Wrangler (pictured), which features Cabaret Voltaire co-founder Stephen Mallinder, will create a live electronic soundtrack that attempts to recreate The Tourist, a much-lauded sci-fi script that was canned despite interest from Francis Ford Coppola and Quadrophenia’s Franc Roddam. Levi will team up with her sister for The Colour of Chips, a British take on the 1969 film The Colour of Pomegranates by Soviet director Sergei Parajanov. The two performances on HOME’s Theatre 1 stage will run with an intermission.

Sat 6 May, HOME, 2 Tony Wilson Place, Manchester M15 4FN. Tel: 0161 200 1500, 7.30pm, £10 – £19, www.homemcr.org
