warnmcr: mayday, mayday....


There's no irony that this weekend's May Day holiday, traditionally a day for workers, is couched firmly amidst poverty and strikes ahead of next week's flagwaving celebration of inequity.
This weekend, continuing until Sat 29 Apr is Complicité's Drive Your Plow Over The Bones Of The Dead  at The Lowry; and in Liverpool Imitating the Dog's Macbeth at the Playhouse,  Song for Europe at the Unity and a Scratch Studio at the Everyman. Tonight, Fri 28 Apr, RAWD's Super! is at Chester Storyhouse; Russell Maliphant's Vortex at Lancaster Arts and tomorrow, Sat 29 Apr Equilibrio Dinamico's Gold: The Journey of Light is at the Riley Theatre in Leeds.

Next week (w/c 1 May) Word of Warning is back in action with Avital Raz's Unnatural Cycles - A Ghost Story on Wed 3 Apr at The Lowry, which also has Alice Christina-Corrigan's Past Life on Thu 4 May, Howool Baek and Siga Dance on Sat 6 May, and Aakash Odedra's Little Murmur on Sun 7 May. HOME has Ad Infinitum's If You Fall (3-13 May).
Further afield, Marianne Tuckmann's The Dirt is at Stage@Leeds on Tue 2 May and SLAP presents Drop Pin at Leeds Assembly House on Thu 4 May. UKRland is at Liverpool Unity (2-4 May); and Imitating the Dog's Macbeth is at the LBT in Huddersfield (3-6 May).
