warnmcr: gap stopped...

I find myself not at my sharpest this morning after a very long, somewhat chilly but ultimately very satsifying day's work realising StopGap. As Storm Jorge looms, alongside the antediluvian tradition of women proposing to men on leap day, I'm looking forward to a sofa-weekend, consciously uncoupling from the work I find myself wedded to.

This weekend you can still see Made In China's Super Duper Close Up at The Royal Exchange Theatre (until Sat 29 Feb); and Bourgeois + Maurice's Insane Animals is at HOME (until 14 Mar). Lancaster Arts has Nikki + JD's Knot on Fri 28 + Sat 29 Feb; and the New Queers on The Block Weekender is in Blackpool (until 29 Feb) with Jackie Hagan + Mandla Rae, tonight, Fri 28 Feb.

Next week (w/c 2 Mar) Transitions Dance is at Waterside, Sale on Tue 3 Mar; Sophie Woolley's Augmented is at The Royal Exchange Theatre (5-7 Mar); Willy Hudson's Bottom is at The Lowry (5-7 Mar); and Figs In Wigs's Little Wimmin is at HOME (5-14 Mar). Manchester Jewish Museum's Festival of Belonging (7-14 Mar) includes Leo Burtin's Good Appetite at Manchester Art Gallery on Sun 8 Mar.
Elsewhere, on Tue 3 Mar: James Wilton Dance's The Storm is at the LBT, Huddersfield; and Laura Van Hulle's Yin is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University.

The following week (w/c 9 Mar) it's libraries central with Avital Raz in Manchester; and Chanje Kunda in Oldham; while EARTS Fête 2020 promises evening live performance. Elsewhere Liz Lea is in Ormskirk; Beach Body Ready in Sheffield; and Mark Thomas in Liverpool.

As a heads-up, tickets for Jo Bannon's We Are Fucked at The Lowry are available from today.  
I, meanwhile, am off to the glamorous world of the StopGap get-out...
