This week the Government has seemingly developed an acute case of logophobia - or another phobia they'd rather couch as 'wrongism'; while in Rochdale, the Opposition has simply ceded the debate to the Big Brother cat

On this delightful first day of 'Spring' in parts cultural:
This weekend, Chris Thorpe's A Family Business is at HOME (until 2 Mar); while in Leeds, Verve are at the Riley Theatre tonight Fri 1 Mar.

Next week (w/c 4 Mar) in a tribute to Nigel Charnock, Marco D'Agostin's Best Regards is at The Lowry on Tue 5 Mar. Verve are at New Adelphi, University of Salford on Sat 9 Mar - or for something more discursive there's a Bunker Talk at The Salutation on Tue 5 Mar.
To the West, the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Wendy Houstoun's Watch It on Tue 5 Mar and Vanhulle Dance's Olive Branch on Thu 7 Mar; while in Liverpool, Izzie Major's The Bedroom is at the Adelphi Hotel (6-9 Mar). To the East,  The Polar Bear (is dead) is at The LBT, Huddersfield on Wed 6 Mar; while in Leeds, FlawBored's It's a Motherf*cking Pleasure is at Leeds Playhouse (7-9 Mar) and Kasra Jalilipour's Apocrypha of the Later Saints is at CLAY on Fri 8 Mar.

The following week, (w/c 11 Mar) on Mon 11 Mar Seamas Carey's Help! I Think I'm A Nationalist is at Bolton Octagon. The Lowry has Imitating the Dog's Frankenstein (12-14 Mar), Wendy Houstoun's Watch It on Thu 14 Mar and Marisa Carnesky's Showwomen on Sat 16 Mar (also in Lancaster on Thu 14 Mar). Jenny Baines & Anna Macdonald's Collaborative Sharing at Pink in Stockport on Thu 14 Mar. Criptic Arts' Self and Other is at HOME on Fri 15 + Sat 16 Mar and there's the Not Quite Light Festival in Swinton (15-17 Mar - though details of what it entails are sparse).
The Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Altered Skin's Fatherhood on Tue 12 Mar and The Polar Bear (is dead) on Thu 14 Mar. Also on Thu 14 Mar, Rosy Carrick's Musclebound is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield.

As a footnote, if you're looking for a night out in Cheshire - check out The Upside Down Cabaret at the Live Rooms, Chester, on the last Wednesday of the month.

Part of Word of Warnings 2024 logo a photo of peach frills cropped in the shape of Word set on a white background
As the UK economy turns the corner - into recession, the only things not receding are the hairline cracks - or aching chasms in the Tory vote.

This weekend, at The Lowry, there's Scratch Nights x New Earth Academy Fri 16 Feb. For some physical spectacle, you could see Ockham's Razor's Tess (until 17 Feb) or, for some great performers, Wise Children's Blue Beard at HOME (until 24 Feb) .  Elsewhere, Imitating the Dog's Frankenstein is at Leeds Playhouse (until 24 Feb); and Eleanor May Blackburn's Does My Fanny Look Big In This? is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield on Fri 16 + 23 Feb.

Next week (w/c 19 Feb) Figs in Wigs' Big Finish is at HOME (21-24 Feb); and Drag & Draw is at PINK in Stockport on Fri 23 Feb.
Further afield, Andy Smith + Lynsey O'Sullivan's A Citizen's Assembly is at Lancaster Arts on Wed 21 Feb; Bi-Topia is at Blackpool Grand on Thu 22 + Fri 23 Feb; while Jenny Sealey's Self-Raising is at Liverpool Everyman on Fri 23 + Sat 24 Feb.

The following week, (w/c 26 Feb) is very quiet: Chris Thorpe's A Family Business is at HOME (29 Feb - 2 Mar) + New Arrangements: Method Over Matter is at PINK in Stockport on Thu 29 Feb. In Leeds, Verve are at the Riley Theatre on Fri 1 Mar.

Meanwhile, we at Word of Warning have a couple of things creeping up this spring: Turn 2024 spins into sight on Fri 22 Mar; while the ante is upped with ELOINA's High Steaks on Sat 27 Apr.

So we launch into the new year and a new season with what we will inevitably look back on as a true artistic highlight: Joe Wicks's MOVE Manchester at Aviva Studios... a taste of the future of cultural venues?

For those of us not into PE with Joe, next week (w/c 22 Jan) there's an unseasonal blast of activity with Future Flares at MMU featuring award-winning Enkidu Khaled's Working Method on Wed 24  + Fri 26 Jan, Reckless Sleepers' String Section, Michael Pinchbeck's Another Way of Telling and Gillian Dyson's Nerve in the Bone on Thu 25 Jan and An Image is an Act Not a Thing on Fri 26 Jan.

In Leeds, Northern Rascals' Shed is at the Riley Theatre on Sat 27 Jan.

The following two weeks (w/c 29 Jan + w/c 5 Feb) see a return to a more traditional seasonal lull - but there's Bi-Topia at Sale Waterside on Fri 2 + Sat 3 Feb; and at The LBT, Huddersfield on Wed 7 Feb.
Marisa Carnesky's Showwomxn is at the Drama Studio in Sheffield on Sat 3 Feb (coming to the Lowry in March).

Van Huynh Company's In Realness is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Thu 30 Nov;  and Company Mek's Father Politics is at the Riley Theatre, Leeds on Sat 1 Dec.

As the ruling class jets back off to London, leaving us to take the slow train, over the next few weeks we'll be experiencing the legacy of "northern powerhouse" with no fast link to Leeds for Transform - but at least we have Aviva Studios...

This weekend
  The Commission for New and Old Art's The Long 40s is at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation tonight Fri 6 Oct; while HOME has Two Destination Language's 40/40 on Sat 7 Oct.

So, in typically contrary fashion, just as we head back into our crumbling institutions, the long, dank summer has given way to a short, ferocious autumn... nevertheless, even before the student influx things are waking up a touch in performance world:

Over the next week, Contact is busy with Human Rights Tattoo tomorrow, Sat 9 Sep; then don't miss our friends Malandra Jacks' Census (13-16 Sep) (a hÅb/Contact co-commission).

The Men's Room + Company Chameleon's Consumed is at the Royal Exchange Den in Beswick on Thu 17 Aug

As Europe fries, for once I'm almost grateful for Mancunian dankness and downpour... but it is the height of summer and as such things theatrical are going pretty quiet.

This weekend, though, we are at Z-arts tomorrow, Sat 22 Jul, for Haphazard - an afternoon (12-3) of all ages live art with all sorts, from a giant spinning jellyfish to a laser show... get there early if you want to dance with a slinky! Featuring Gemma Lees, Jana Aizupe & Gi Vasey,Joe Beedles, Julie Burrow, Kitunda Argyle, Krissi Musiol & Amy Vreeke, Luna Ælflæd, Maddie Wakeling & Rowan Szulek, Nicola Smith, Orla Collier & Magdalena Górnikiewicz, Puppetfingers, Thomas Daniel Byrne
 

In Sheffield, Owen + Slater's Try | Trying | Tried is Theatre Deli on Sat 22 Jul while in Leicester there's Journey's Festival in Leicester (Sat 22 + Sun 23 Jul).

The following week (w/c 24 Jul) CYC's Hand Me Down is at Castlefied Viaduct on Thu 27 Jul, while in Leeds Gracefool Collective's Kick-Off takes to the streets 27-29 Jul. In Sheffield Theatre Deli has Ayse Balkos's Canine Teeth on Thu 27 Jul and Wency Lam's Anybody Home? on Fri 28 Jul.

Thereafter things go pretty quiet for August. You could make a trip north eastwards for Stockton International Riverside Festival (3-6 Aug). Or MUCH closer to home, in Moston, Malandra Jacks' Census is at Simpson Memorial Hall on Thu 10 and Fri 11 Aug.

And then there's Edinburgh... Below is my usual longlist spreadsheet. The things I'm thinking of trying to see are Haranczak / Navarre Performance Projects, Ben Target, Max Percy and Friends, Junk Ensemble, Katrine Turner, Frankie Thompson and Liv Ello, BULLYACHE, Adam Scott-Rowley, Raquel Meseguer Zafe / Unchartered Collective, Daniel Kitson, Victor Esses, Mark Thomas, Emily Woof, Lula Mebrahtu, SUPERFAN, Brook Tate.

Usual tip for the Edinburgh newbie - what I do is sign into my EdFringe account, and go through the site, finding by category + genre; and then by key venues.  Any show that might be interesting I add to My Favourites - then I export them all as a longlist from which I can plan. That longlist is below as a spreadsheet so you can edit and sort as you please.

Online - CLAY have the Chasm Digital projects, possibly until 21 July and GM Fringe has Making It Up and Tigers in the Wisteria throughout July. Edinburgh Fringe also has an online programme which I'm yet to really study though some of the Voices from the South work might be interesting.

Unless something unmissable pops up, this Weekly Warning is going to take a bit of a break until things pick up pace again in September.  Keep checking our News + Information page for more pointers to opportunities and show videos online, and @WarnMcr on Twitter for short-notice performances.
