Word of Warning... week 2 of silly season...
Having tempted fate with 'mobility scooter on M62' quips last week, which nearly came to fruition when I got locked in my car park on the morning of 'Poolside Emergency... I'm going to refrain from any such reckless suggestion!
Week 2 of WoW's silly season is upon us and with it Turn 2013 at Contact, tonight, Fri 19 and tomorrow Sat 20 April. 15 pieces of new dance across and, at only £10/6 for a 2 night pass, it's a steal!
Elsewhere West Yorkshire Playhouse's Transform Festival (16-27 April) continues til 27 April - look out for The Johnny Eck and Dave Toole Show(23-27th) and there's more dance at Blackpool Grand with David Hughes' The Red Room on Sun 21 April.
Next week in Manchester sees Angela Clerkin with Improbable Theatre - The Bear at the Royal Exchange Studio (Thu 25-Sat 27 April) and, of course, Word of Warning is back again, this time at Z-arts, with the very marvellous Stuart Silver + Tam Hinton on Fri 26 April. Also worth checking out is the Whitworth's Saturday Supplement on Sat 27 April.
Further afield, If Only! are occupying Gallery 3 as part of Archiving the Bluecoat on Mon 22 April from 10.30am; Pigeon Theatre's The Smell of Envy is at Capstone Theatre, Liverpool on Wed 24 April plus the intriguing Tatty Del Are Making it Work at the Lantern Theatre, Sheffield, the same night.
Looking further ahead, Daniel Bye's The Price of Everything is at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford; Idle Motion's That Is All You Need To Know is at the Lowry and the Jane Packman Company's A Thousand Shards of Glass is at Slung Low's HUB. And, surprise, surprise, Word of Warning is back again - this time at Contact with Works Ahead on 2/3 May!
So, hoping to see you in the very near future for some dancerly twirling, some dark musings on perspective or some moving and talking (not necessarily both at once!). Until them, I'm off to order excess quantities of dancer-treats from a well-known Hulme supermarket.
