warnmcr: hybridity...

Ok, so this is all very confusing... are we locked or unlocked, socially distanced, vaccinated, tested, certificated, live or online... welcome to the hybrid world! There do seem to be some shoots of spring emerging both online and, post 17 May, live... but getting a handle on them is just a bit of a challenge, so bear with me!

This weekend, Pride Stages has a double bill from Cheddar Gorgeous + Jason Andrew Gueststreaming from The Met on Sat 24 Apr.
Queer Contact takes place 28 Apr- 1 May. Look out for film versions of Mark Croasdale Spilling the Tea + Roma Havers Lob on Thu 29 Apr; Mandla Rae's As British As A Watermelon on Fri 30 Apr and Adam Ali's Hamoody and a live Evening with Cheddar Gorgeous + Friends on Sat 1 May.

While HOME is physically reopening from 17 May for film and exhibitions, for performance it's a case of checking out the online content, including, as part of PUSH, Superhero Alter Ego.
