warnmcr: still at home...

So here we are in a whole new year and a whole new lockdown. It does feel like groundhog day with the same old stay at home graphics, and it could partly because it's January, but a quick (80 site) web-trawl, seems to show pickings out there are pretty slim. I can't say I'm surprised - for one, as a programmer am feeling pretty discombobulated by the schedule-postpone-reschedule-go digital cycle.

That said - because I obviously can't help myself, we at Word of Warning are plunging into the year with our latest Domestic, next Wed 13 Jan. 7 artists, 7 new works live from their homes - featuring Alice Connolly, Avital Raz, Loïs Soleil, Lydia Cottrell, Miray Sidhom, Mitzee, Voidance Company and hosted by Peader Kirk. It's free, though a donation is always welcome, and it would be great to see you - or, given it's zoom, at least to know that you're there ! Domesticated, our online home for domestic performance video is also still up and running so feel free to have a nosey around that too.

Elsewhere, most things I can find are pre-recorded, but a few things to check out over the coming weeks are: 
Over the next 10 days, if you can handle the New York time difference, there's Under the Radar 2021from the Public Theater (until 17 Jan);and, back on UK time, Unlimited Festival (15-17 Jan) from the Southbank.
Thereafter there's Everything is Absolutely Fine on 22 Jan from The Lowry, We’re All Strangers Here from Stage@Leeds (31 Jan-28 Feb), Interruptions from MMU Holden Gallery (3-10 Feb).
Ongoing there's 4:3 a film by Amy Pennington from Heart of Glass, The Way Out from Battersea Arts Centre, Digital Stage from Sadlers Wells plus HOME and MIF's online content.

Finally, as a bit of a curveball, this weekend (8-10 Jan) you can also catch a (rather pricey) limited streaming of David Bowie's final work, Lazarus

As ever, keep checking our News + Information page for more pointers to opportunities and show videos online, and @WarnMcr on Twitter for short-notice performances. I'll be back with news, as and when there's something to say!
