warnmcr: half-hearted...

For those of us not heart-warmed by the commercial glow of Valentine's, I'm afraid we can't look to performance as an escape, as the half-term lull seems to be on us - though you could still catch 1927's The Animals and Children Took to the Streets at HOME (until Sat 16 Feb).

Next week (w/c 18 Feb) enforced wanderlust continues (though less than I thought, due to month gremlins in our google calendar). Tuckshop Dance Theatre's Neverland is at Storyhouse, Chester on Mon 18 Feb; and Forced Entertainment's To Move In Time is at Lancaster Arts on Tue 19 Feb. Extend your range a bit and there's SLAP festival in York (20-23 Feb) including Emma Geraghty, Beth Cassani + Joseph Mercier, Ben Mills, Ali Matthews and Panic Lab.

The following week (w/c 25 Feb) of course it's all about Word of Warning's 100th event Will Dickie's The Rave Space at NIAMOS on Thu 28 Feb! But through a less myopic lens, there's Wise Children at HOME; Verve + Quarantine in Lancaster; Dam Van Hunyh in Crewe; and Katy Dyein Sheffield (also with us at the Lowry in March, available to book from today).

In the meantime enjoy the unseasonal weather (but you'll be a bit chilly if you believe 'national' 19 degree weather forecasts - 'national' only means south!)



PS: if you're feeling creative and want to turn your hand to all ages live art - the deadline for Haphazard 2019 proposals is 27 Feb.
