This weekend HOME's PUSH reaches its conclusion with Nwando Ebizie's Distorted Constellations (Fri 25 + Sat 26 Jan) and tomorrow, Sat 26 Jan Chanje Kunda's Plant Fetish and Javaad Alipoor's Propel. Elsewhere in Manchester, Jo Fong + Sonia Hughes's Neither Here Nor There is at CFCCA on Sat 26 + Sun 27 Jan.
Next week (w/c 28 Jan) things seem to quieten right down in Manchester - but further afield you could check out Michael Pinchbeck's new work with New Perspectives Theatre A Fortunate Man at Axis, Crewe on Fri 31 Jan or In The Palm Of My Hand at The Bluecoat, Liverpool on Sat 2 Feb.
The following week (w/c 4 Feb) 1927 is at HOME; Queer Contact 19 has Mother's Ruin at Waterside, Sale and the Vogue Ball at the Academy. Elsewhere, Luca Rutherford is in Bradford; Reckless Sleepers in Crewe; James Wilton in Blackpool and Keisha Thompson in Huddersfield.
My plans of heading to London for Now19 tonight have just been foiled, by football of all things (heaving last train back, no thank you)... so I'm contemplating the unexpected possibility of a free evening!
PS: if you're feeling creative and want to turn your hand to all ages live art - have a look at our Haphazard 2019 call for proposals.
