Word of Warning
...hope you enjoyed the gin and chips..!
Anyone who missed either company can get a second bite, as the Royal Exchange Special FX is following in our footsteps with The Mustdashios on Friday 29 March, and Levantes Dance Theatre's most recent (greenroom/hÅb/Method Lab commissioned) Two Peas in A Pod is at UCLAN's Media Factory on Weds 28 March. In a double whammy, on Tues 27th, Media Factory also has Grace Surman + Cathy Butterworth's Two Four One One. Moving into slightly more sensible chronology and geography... Dance is serviced on Tues 27th by Wayne McGregor/Random Dance's Entity, at The Lowry - unmissable for some of you... whilst those of a more poetic/theatrical bent should check out Dominic Berry's Wizard at Contact (28-31 March). In Leeds, Thurs 29th, sees the next development of Michael Pinchbeck's The Beginning in a double bill with Dan Canham's 30 Cecil Street at Leeds Met at Northern Ballet Theatre; and on Fri 30th, Foursight Theatre's Bette & Joan and The Carriageworks. In Sheffield Sat 30 March marks the beginning of a new evening of live art and performance: Last Saturday Live at Bank Street Arts. Looking ahead, Leeds Seven Arts has Trace Theatre's Doublebill on Easter Saturday (7 April) and even further afield, in Birmingham, the Fierce Festival runs from 29 March - 8 April. Given the impending Easter break, I'm going to give the mailer a week or two off, as there's not a huge amount more to talk about... meanwhile I'm hitting the M62 again for the Juncture Festival in Leeds tonight and then heading off to sample the peformative delights of Copenhagen at the Informal European Theatre Meeting next week.
