warnmcr: turn on or push off...

As the royals push off abroad and the triumphalists fundraise* to turn on Big Ben, in parts theatrical the seasonal soft start has all gone a bit hard core, as another festival has snuck into the fray...

This weekend
PUSH Festival at HOME (18 Jan-1 Feb) kicks off on Sat 18 Jan with Platform Manchester's Hope and Fear; while the Turn On Fest (til 1 Feb, with Superbia + Mother's Ruin) is up and running at Hope Mill Theatre: Nataly LeBouleux's MINA is tonight, Fri 17 Jan; and Trans Creative's Stand By Your Trans is on Sun 19 Jan. In Leeds, the rescheduled That Matt Rogers Project (in)CREDIBLE is at CLAY, tonight, Fri 17 Jan.

Next week (w/c 20 Jan) really is festival central: PUSH continues at HOME with Plaster Cast Theatre's Sound Cistem (20-22 Jan) and Tania Camara's Oreo (23-25 Jan). Turn On continues at Hope Mill Theatre with Mandla Rae's As British As A Watermelon on Mon 20 Jan; Jason Andrew Guest's Mind Games on Tue 21 Jan; An Audience with David Hoyle on Wed 22 Jan; Nobody's Watching on Thu 23 Jan; and Minute Taker's Wolf Hours on Fri 24 Jan. Interruptions at MMU's Holden Gallery has John-Paul Jones's Technotrash on Tue 21 Jan and ARM's Oozy on Thu 23 Jan; while The Lowry has Debs Gatenby's Hiya Anxiety in a doublebill with Salford University on Wed 22 Jan. Further afield, The Dark Room is in Ormskirk on Wed 22 Jan.

The following week (w/c 27 Jan) so far seems calmer, with Holocaust Brunch at Manchester Central Library;  An Act of Care White Noise Theatre at HOME; and Barbara at Hope Mill Theatre. Elsewhere, Emergence 2020 is at Stage@Leeds.

Of course, my telepathy skills are limited and I might be missing something, so if you're hosting an event - particularly a new festival or a one-off - you might want to let me know. Meanwhile, in case you fancy giving us some feedback on one of Word of Warning's  2019 events, you can do so here.

warnmcr: divine decad-ence...


So here we are, at the dawn of a new decade - our oven-ready goose has been well and truly cooked, so let's just hope the twenties aren't too (militaristically) roaring and that immersive screenings of Cabaret (sold-out) aren't omens for society at large.

In performance world, things are still bubbling under so I'm taking this opportunity to brag about Word of Warning's Spring 2020 Season:
We have two visits to The Lowry - firstly on Wed 12 Feb for Harry Clayton-Wright's gasp-inducing Sex Education and secondly on Wed 1 Apr for Jo Bannon’s penetrating We Are Fucked.
New for Spring 2020 is Emergency StopGap on Thu 27 Feb – an evening micro-version of the ever enduring Emergency at the delightfully decrepit NIAMOS, bridging the gap between gallery + theatre to fill the empty months of winter. (Deadline for proposals Fri 17 Jan)
We also makle a return to the Royal Exchange Theatre on 19-21 Mar for a daring + unapologetic examination of religion, pop culture + black representation with Jamal Gerald’s Idol; and to STUN on 23+24 April for the next development of Tania Camara’s Oreo, exploring the masks we don to achieve success in society. 
Spring rounds off with the annual Works Ahead, this year in sited form at NIAMOS on 21+22 May. Co-produced with Contact and featuring Will Dickie and Ross McCaffrey, this double bill of new mentored performance is a sneak preview of new works at the start of their journeys.
 
In the world beyond WoW, next week (w/c 13 Jan) sees a bit of a soft start: with PUSH Festivalat HOME (18 Jan-1 Feb) kicking off on Saturday with Platform Manchester's Hope and Fear. The intriguing Interruptions programme at MMU's Holden Gallery has four pieces over the next fortnight: this week's (14+16 Jan) are video based, but the next two (21 + 23 Jan) are more performative. Further afield, the postponed That Matt Rogers Project (in)CREDIBLE is at CLAY, Leeds on Fri 17 Jan.

The following week (w/c 20 Jan) PUSH has Plaster Cast Theatre and Tania Camara; Interruptions has John-Paul Jones and ARM; The Lowry has https://thelowry.com/whats-on/hiya-anxiety-this-is-not-for-you-ps-sorry-double-bill/ Debs Gatenby; while The Dark Room is in Ormskirk.

warnmcr: oven-ready turkey...


Writing from the boutique luxury of the Art B&B in Blackpool, looking out over a very grey sea, as the 'festive' season looms, cooking analogies are seemingly all the political rage and I'm left wondering whether oven-ready is synonymous with half-baked... In performance world, the season is nearly cooked, before we feel the burn of panto...

This weekend Company Chameleon's The Shadow is at HOME on Fri 22 + Sat 23 Nov. In Leeds, SH!T Theatre's SH!T Actually previews at CLAY on Fri 22 Nov; while Uninvited Guests To Those Born Later is at The Holbeck on Sun 24 Nov; and in Sheffield Levantes Dance Theatre's The Band is at the University on Sat 23 Nov 

Next week (w/c 25 Nov) turns the heat up for a final blast - HOME has Bryony Kimmings's I'm a Phoenix, Bitch (26-30 Nov) and Chanje Kunda Plant Fetish (27-30 Nov). Victoria Firth's How To Be Amazingly Happy is at Waterside, Sale on Fri 29 Nov; and Emergence Premiere is at the New Adelphi Theatre, Salford Uni on Sat 30 Nov. Elsewhere, Company Chameleon's The Shadow is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill Univeristy, on Tue 26 Nov; and Amy Vreeke's The Year My Vagina Tried To Kill Me is at the Holbeck, Leeds on Sun 1 Dec. 

Thereafter there's little escaping the festive and election frolics, but if you are looking for an alternative: CLAY, Leeds has That Matt Rogers Project (in)CREDIBLE on Thu 5 Dec and NEWK(ed) (14-15 Dec). You can still contribute, until 11 Dec, to Gillian Jane Lees & Adam York Gregory's Taking The Time, for a 24 hr performance at the Herbarium in Lancaster on 18-19 Dec.

As far as I'm aware, that's kind of your lot for the year. Tempted as I am to run coverage of the election as a performance piece, I'll spare you that misery, so the Weekly Warning will be taking a break until Fri 10 Jan, when I'll be back with details of the Word of Warning's Spring Programme and PUSH Festival at HOME (18 Jan - 1 Feb).

I'll close with the greeting of the season - don't forget to vote, bah humbug!

warnmcr: xmas creep...


Disturbingly, despite the impending electoral shenanigans, the 'festive season' seems to have started even earlier than usual and, watching the tv, you could be forgiven for thinking it was December already. The performance world is still alive and kicking, but make the most the final weeks of November...

This weekend is fairly quiet - tonight Fri 15 Nov you can still catch Forced Entertainment's Out of Order at HOME; or tomorrow, Sat 16 Nov, Mother's Bloomers is at the Royal Exchange. Elsewhere, Truth to Power Cafe is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University tonight, Fri 15 Nov (and at the Unity Theatre, Liverpool on Sat 16 Nov); while Sheila Ghelani + Sue Palmer's Common Salt is at the Maritime Museum, Lancaster, tomorrow Sat 16 Nov.

Next week (w/c 18 Nov) pace picks up again: Mark Croasdale's Staying In is at Waterside, Sale on Mon 18 Nov; Tribe's Still I Rise is at The Lowry on Tue 19 Nov; and Company Chameleon's The Shadow is at HOME on Fri 22 + Sat 23 Nov.
Further afield, Mark Edward + Co's What Have YOU Done To Deserve This is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Tue 19 Nov; and Spill Yer Tea is at Constellations, Liverpool on Wed 20 Nov.  In Sheffield, Motherland is at Theatre Deli on Wed 20 Nov and Levantes Dance Theatre's The Band is at the University of Sheffield on Sat 23 Nov; while in Leeds Miranda Tuffnell's Pneuma is at NSCD's Riley Theatre on Tue 19 Nov; SH!T Theatre SH!T Actually (an excusable xmas outing) previews at CLAY on Fri 22 Nov; while Uninvited Guests To Those Born Later is at The Holbeck on Sun 24 Nov.

The following week (w/c 25 Nov) Bryony Kimmings and Chanje Kunda are both at HOME; while Emergence Premiere is at the New Adelphi and Victoria Firth is in Sale. Elsewhere, Company Chameleon are in Ormskirk and Amy Vreeke is in Leeds. 

Come December the xmas inevitables really do take over, so next week is likely to be the last Weekly Warning of the year. If you have anything unmissable happening in December or early January, let me know by Thu 21 Nov.

warnmcr: calm after the storm...


After yesterday's deluge, on this unusually clement winter's morning, in these parts there's a feeling of calm after the storm: Word of Warning's season has come to a close, the fireworks have silenced and hopefully the floodwaters are starting to recede. The calm is inevitably fleeting, though, given the tempestuous month ahead - let's just hope it brings a fresh wind of change...

This weekend, The Lowry is full of dance with Kalakuta Republik on Fri 8 + Sat 9 Nov and Emmanuel Gat's Works, also on Sat 9 Nov. At the New Adelphi, Salford, Watch Us Dance is also tonight Fri 8 Nov. Quarantine invite you to Meet The Neighbours on Sat 9 + Sun 10 Nov; plus Neil Bartlett's 24 Hours of Peace is at The Royal Exchange (10-11 Nov).
In Liverpool, Homotopia, at the Unity Theatre, has Oozing Gloop (Fri 8 Nov), Split Britches and Joan (both Sat 9 Nov); while, in Blackpool Gary Clarke's Wasteland is at The Grand on Fri 8 Nov. Over in Sheffield, the Enable Us programme has also kicked off at the University of Sheffield (til 23 November).

Next week (w/c 11 Nov) is quieter, though Mark Thomas 50 Things About Us is at Waterside, Sale on Tue 12 Nov; and Forced Entertainment's Out of Order is at HOME (13-15 Nov).  Further afield Truth to Power Cafe is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Fri 15 Nov and at the Unity Theatre, Liverpool on Sat 16 Nov; while Sheila Ghelani + Sue Palmer's Common Salt is at the Maritime Museum, Lancaster, also on Sat 16 Nov.

The following week (w/c 18 Nov) Mark Croasdale is in Sale; Tribe at The Lowry; and Company Chameleon at HOME. Further afield, Mark Edward + Co are in Ormskirk; Spill Yer Teais in Liverpool; Motherland and Levantes are in Sheffield; and SH!T Theatre and Uninvited Guests are in Leeds.

warnmcr: promises, promises...


On this All Saints first day of November, we find ourselves still part of Europe, floating on a sea of broken 'promises': Britain didn't explode and Boris isn't dead in a ditch but there's no escaping the promise of a bitter winter, probably of discontent. Meanwhwile, we at Word of Warning plan on keeping our (albeit tricksy) promises with our final show of the season, the almost miraculous Tom Cassani's I Promise You That Tonight.

Before that, it's busy out there! This weekendtonight Fri 1 Nov there's Michael Pinchbeck's Concerto at the New Adelphi, Salford; and Burtin +Matthews's The Witching Way at the Royal Exchange Theatre; while tomorrow, Sat 2 Nov The People Show's The Last Straw is at The Edge, Chorlton. Javaad Alipoor's Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran also contiues at HOME until 2 Nov.
Elsewhere, Smith + Sveen's Commonism is at the Media Factory, Preston on Fri 1 Nov and at The Holbeck, Leeds on Sun 3 Nov, while the Wit(h)ness Weekender is underway at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford (unitl 3 Nov); as is Light Up Lancaster  (1+ 2 Nov). Over in Liverpool Homotopia(1-10 Nov) kicks off, this weekend including An Evening with Travis Alabanza on Sat 2 Nov.

Next week (w/c 4 Nov) remains busy. The Lowry has the aforementioned Tom Cassani's I Promise You That Tonight on Wed 6 Nov; plus dance in the form of Dicskon Mbi's Enowate on Thu 7 Nov, Kalakuta Republik on Fri 8 + Sat 9 Nov and Emmanuel Gat's Works, also on Sat 9 Nov. At the New Adelphi, Salford, Watch Us Dance is also on Fri 8 Nov. Quarantine invite you to Meet The Neighbours on Sat 9 + Sun 10 Nov; plus Neil Bartlett's 24 Hours of Peace is at The Royal Exchange (10-11 Nov).
Further afield, in Liverpool, Homotopia has Harry Clayton-Wright's Sex Education (Tue 5 Nov), Rachael Young's Nightclubbing (Wed 6 Nov), Oozing Gloop (Fri 8 Nov); Split Britches and Joan(Sat 9 Nov) all at the Unity Theatre.
Liz Agiss's The President's Wife Is Still Dancing is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Wed 6 Nov; and Gary Clarke's Wasteland is at Blackpool Grand on Fri 8 Nov.

The following week (w/c 11 Nov) things start to quieten down, though Mark Thomas is in Sale; Forced Entertainment are at HOME; while Truth to Power Cafe is in Ormskirk.

Hoping to see you at The Lowry on Wed 6 Nov for our final PWYD outing of the season - a touch of trickery and deception with Tom Cassani's I Promise You That Tonight.

warnmcr: fallback position...



As the clocks fall back and the days tick away to the gothiest night of the year, my preferred position would be prone, as I'm still recovering from our own monstously monumental evening with Ron Athey!

This weekend you can still catch Scottee's Class (until 26 Oct) and Javaad Alipoor's Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran (until 2 Nov) at HOME; or HushHush at The Lowry, tonight, Fri 25 Oct.
Further afield, Luke McDonnell's Birdhouse is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield (until 26 Oct); and in Leeds, tonight, Fri 25 Oct, Leo Burtin's with bread is at Stage@Leeds while Ema Boswood's Ghost Sexxx is at CLAY. Tomorrow, Sat 26 Oct, Eggs Collective's Material is a one-off in Accrington Market Hall.

Next week (w/c 28 Oct) Salford University's New Adelphi Theatre plays host to Levantes Dance Theatre's The Band (Tue 29 Oct) and Michael Pinchbeck's Concerto (Fri 1 Nov); while the Royal Exchange Theatre has Burtin + Matthews's The Witching Way on Thu 31 Oct + Fri 1 Nov; and The Edge, Chorlton has The People Show's The Last Straw. Elsewhere, Smith + Sveen's Commonism is at the Media Factory, Preston on Fri 1 Nov and at The Holbeck, Leeds on Sun 3 Nov.

The following week (w/c 4 Nov) Word of Warning is back in action again for Tom Cassani's I Promise You That Tonight at The Lowry. Quarantine invite you to Meet The Neighbours; and there are 24 Hours of Peace at The Royal Exchange. Beyond that there's a lot of dance about: Dicskon MbiKalakuta Republic and Emmanuel Gat are at The Lowry; Watch Us Dance is at New Adelphi; Liz Agiss is in Ormskirk; and Gary Clarke is in Blackpool.

Enjoy the extra hour in bed on Sunday as long as not too many things go bump in the night..!

warnmcr: a monstrous undertaking...


After a torrential weekend in Bristol, I'm enjoying this crisp, autumnal morning. If you fancy venturing out, this weekend, you can still catch Igor + Moreno's Andante at The Lowry and Reckless Sleepers's Negative Space at Salford University's New Adelphi Theatre both tonight, Fri 18 Oct.  There's also the Islington Mill Art Academy's All We Have year end show, including Jenny Gaskell's People, other living + dead things + the matter in between (18-21 Oct).
Alternatively, if you fancy a trip to Brum, Fierce Festival continues until Sun 20 Oct.

Next week (w/c 21 Oct), we at Word of Warning welcome the legendary Ron Athey's Acephalous Monster to NIAMOS on Wed 23 Oct - we've increased capacity so there a very few tickets available.
HOME has Scottee's Class (23-26 Oct) and Javaad Alipoor's Rich Kids: A History of Shopping Malls in Tehran (23 Oct-1 Nov). Kate Adams's Water Is Attracted To Water is at Salford University on Wed 23 Oct; while The Lowry has Gameshow's Nuclear Future (Thu 24 Nov) + HushHush (Fri 25 Oct).
Further afield, the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Gracefool Collective's This Is Not A Wedding on Tue 22 Oct and Yael Karavan's Living Threads on Thu 24 Oct.  Luke McDonnell's Birdhouse is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield (23-26 Oct); and in Leeds, Leo Burtin's with bread is at Stage@Leeds on Thu 24 + Fri 25 Oct while Ema Boswood's Ghost Sexxx is at CLAY on Fri 25 Oct.

The following week (w/c 28 Oct) Levantes Dance Theatre and Michael Pinchbeck are at Salford University; while Burtin + Matthews are at the Royal Exchange Theatre; and The People Show are at The Edge, Chorlton. Elsewhere, Smith + Sveen are in Preston and Leeds.

I'm off to await delivery of blankets to add a little touch of warmth to our monstrous ritual for resistance.

warnmcr: going underground...


So I find myself writing en route to a damp, dark, resonant cave in Bristol as part of IBT's The Summit...

Back in Mancunia, this weekendIgor + Moreno's BEAT is at The Lowry, tonight Fri 11 Oct; Rash Dash's Mary vs Elizabeth is at the Royal Exchange Theatre (til 12 Oct); while Journeys Festival pops up around the city until 13 Oct.
Further afield, Russell Maliphant's Silent Lines  is at Lancaster Arts on Fri 11 + Sat 12 Oct.

Next week (w/c 14 Oct) there's a slowing of pace, though Reckless Sleepers's Negative Spaceis at Salford University's New Adelphi Theatre on Thu 17 Oct; and Igor + Moreno's Andante is at The Lowry on Fri 18 Oct. Elsewhere, Search Party's Storm is at the Media Factory, Preston on Wed 16 Oct. I hear Ron Athey at CLAY in Leeds on Fri 18 Oct is sold-out - but you can still see him in Manchester on 23 Oct. Much, much further afield, Fierce Festival is in Birmingham (15-20 Oct).

The following week (w/c 21 Oct) pace picks up again: with Scottee and Javaad Ali Poor at HOME; Gameshow + HushHush at The Lowry and Kate Adams at Salford University. Gracefool Collective and Yael Karavan are in Ormskirk; Luke McDonnell in Sheffield; Leo Burtin and Ema Boswood in Leeds. Of course, from a Word of Warning perspective, the event of the week is the aforementioned Ron Athey's Acephalous Monster in the decaying grandeur of NIAMOS.  It's one night only (Wed 23 Oct) and selling fast, so you might want to look a bit lively!

warnmcr: Fall-out...


With the dawning of October things have really taken an autumnal turn and even the festival leaves are starting to drop from the schedule trees...

This weekend, you can catch the last falling leaves: SICK! has Kim Noble's WildLife FMtonight, 4 Oct at Z-arts and Hunt & Darton's Radio Local in Hulme Park and Takeover Party at NIAMOS (both Sat 5 Oct); while HOME has Queens of Sheba + Pizza Shop Heroes (both til Sat 5 Oct).
Elsewhere, Louise Orwin's Oh Yes, Oh No is at CLAY, Leeds tonight, Fri 4 Oct; while on Merseyside, LEAP Festival takes the festival reins with New Art Club's Cupid's Revenge tonight, Fri 4 Oct, and Seke Chimutengwende + Alexandrina Hemsley's Black Holes tomorrow, Sat 5 Oct, both at the Unity Theatre.

Next week (w/c 7 Oct) things quieten down somewhat. RashDash's Oh Mother! at the Royal Exchange Theatre has actually been replaced with their Mary vs Elizabeth (10-12 Oct); Igor + Moreno's BEAT is at The Lowry on Fri 11 Oct; while Journeys Festival enters the fray (4-13 Oct around the city).
Further afield, the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Cade + McCaskill's Moot Moot on Tue 8 Oct and Ashleigh Owen's Hip Hip I'm Gay! on Thu 10 Oct. Dance is big: LEAP has Rosie Kay's Fantasia on Tue 8 Oct at Capstone Theatre + Frances Disley's Tripleflex on Thu 10 Oct at the Bluecoat in Liverpool; Gracefool Collective's This Is Not A Wedding is at Stage@Leeds on Tue 8 Oct; and Russell Maliphant's Silent Lines  is at Lancaster Arts on Fri 11 + Sat 12 Oct. To get a bit more live-arty, you'll need to travel - try IBT's The Summit in Bristol (11-13 Oct).

The following week (w/c 14 Oct) seems strangely quiet - though Igor + Moreno bring a second show to The Lowry and Reckless Sleepers are at Salford University. Search Party are in Preston; and Ron Athey is in Leeds (also coming to Manchester on 23 Oct). If you're looking for a longer live art roadtrip, Fierce Festival is in Birmingham (15-20 Oct).
