Word of Warning
...next Sampler Series at Zion just round the corner!
A reminder for anyone who, like me, has signed up for Proto-type Theater's Fortnight - it all kicks off on Monday 16th. Obviously we're getting set for the next Sampler Series evening... rumours of bonkers bingo are currently hanging in the ether... please do join us on Fri 20 April at Zion Arts Centre for Tom Marshman's Legs 11 and GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN's External. We start the evening with Tom's (true) story of how he entered the Pretty Polly Best Legs of 2011 competition and reached the final - followed by GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN - the two women who entranced Emergency Accommodation with their almost-kissing-wordgame. The Lowry Studio is busy with Chris Thorpe + Hannah Jane Walker's The Oh F**k Moment on Fri 20 + Sat 21 (multiple limited capacity slots) and then Hot Salt Theatre's Honey Blood also on Sat 21 April. Thurs 19th April is a busy day - with the very atmospheric Victoria Baths playing host to Voidance's The Ghost of Someone Not Yet Drowned; and dance is also well served outside Manchester with Solos (featuring Kate Jackson, Jo Ashbridge, Genevieve Say, Jen Hale + Gavin Coward) at Pyramid, Warrington. For a more physical theatre take, there's also Rhum and Clay's Shutterland at The Unity, Liverpool. Across the border, West Yorkshire Playhouse kicks off the first weekend of its Transform 12 festival with Little Bulb, Uninvited Guests amongst many others - well worth checking out (I'd be there if I wasn't a bit tied up with other things here!) And, as a final word... at Word of Warning we are just gearing up for this summer's Hazard incursion into Manchester City Centre on Saturday 21 July. In the past we've wrapped Cathedral Gardens in 6 km of hazard tape, given the image of banking a wash and brush up and created dry-wipe graffitti on Harvey Nichols! The artist call for proposals is now open at hazardmcr.org and we have also launched a crowdfunding appeal at Sponsume. So if you're feeling a bit generous, or indeed, mischievous, please help us to make this event happen - all contributions, however large or small, very gratefully received - and the top 'reward' gives some 'lucky' (?!) person the chance to help me choose some of the programme!
