warnmcr: off the rails...

This morning finds me more than a little bleary, from a train-tube-overground roundtrip railfest last night to see new shows by Stacy Makishi and Lucy Hutson (if you're heading to London in the next few weeks, check out NOW 18 at The Yard - just maybe don't try there and back in the night!)  Meanwhile, I'll attempt to offer some clarity on this week's offerings much closer to home:

This weekend, tonight Fri 19 Jan, you might still catch Reckless Sleepers' The Last Supper at Salford University's Digital Performance Lab (says it's sold out but keep an eye on the site); while tomorrow, Sat 20 Jan, The Lowry has Michela Pelusio's Space Time Helix.

Next week (w/c 22 Jan) PUSH continues at HOME, including Meraki Collective's Only Speak When Spoken To on Tue 23 and Wed 24 Jan; and Hercules Productions' Rasta Liv (25-27 Jan).  The Lowry has two durational pieces from Adam York Gregory + Gillian Jane Lees  (of Proto-type Theater): on Thu 24 Jan Perspective is not a science (but a hope) with Salford University; and on Fri 25 Jan, Present Tense (look out for Proto-type Theater's The Audit in March - on sale 2 Feb). Oldham Coliseum has Lemn Sissay's Something Dark on Thu 25 Jan plus the kick-off of Queer Contact 2018 (27 Jan-24 Feb) with a Mother's Ruin on Sat 27 Jan. Further afield Lancaster Arts launches its season on Tue 23 Jan with 21 Common's Dancer;  Stage@Leeds has Keira Martin's Here Comes Trouble on Thu 25 Jan; while Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse has Bryony Kimmings + Brian Lobel's A Pacifist's Guide To The War On Cancer (26 Jan - 3 Feb)

The following week (w/c 29 Jan) Hofesh Schechter is at HOME; Rebekka Platt is at Partisan; Massive Owl are at Axis, Crewe and Keisha Thompson is at Liverpool Unity.

I'm off to imbibe more caffeine to counteract the effects of getting to Hackney Wick and back in the evening!
