warnmcr: pushing on...

It's a whole new year and I'm battling to crawl out of the hideous void that was December 2017, when this Weekly Warning lost its most avid reader, my mum.  So, in her memory, here's my first attempt to look forward to 2018:

Thanks to the Royal Exchange and HOME, the year gets off to a flying start.  This weekend you can still catch Tim Cowbury (Made in China)'s The Claim at Royal Exchange Theatre (until Sat 13 Jan).  HOME's PUSH 2018 (12-27 Jan) also kicks off, and tomorrow (Sat 13 Jan) has Propel, a day of sharings including James Monaghan (Sheep Knuckle)'s Forrest, Elmi Ali's Said The Seismograph About The Tremor and Josh Coates + Ali Pidsley's Untitled A.I. Project Interactive Workshop.

Next week (w/c 15 Jan), PUSH continues with two shows by YESYESNONO: Insert Slogan Here on Mon 15 and Tue 16 Jan; and 5 Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist on Mon 15 and Wed 17 Jan.  Salford University's Digital Performance Lab also plays host to Reckless Sleepers' The Last Supper on Thu 18 (sold out) + Fri 19 Jan; while The Lowry has Michela Pelusio's Space Time Helix on Sat 20 Jan.

The following week (w/c 22 Jan) PUSH continues, including Meraki Collective and Hercules Productions; while at The Lowry there are two durational pieces from Adam York Gregory + Gillian Jane Lees  (of Proto-type Theater) working with Salford University; and Queer Contact 2018 (27 Jan-24 Feb) kicks off with a Mother's Ruin at Oldham Coliseum (which also hosts Lemn Sissay); while further afield Stage@Leeds has Keira Martin; and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse has A Pacifist's Guide To The War On Cancer.
So basically - if you're post-xmas stir-crazy, I think there's something there that will pretty much fill every night to the end of the month..!
