warnmcr: stopping the gap...

As we creep towards leap day it's a bit quiet on the performance homefront, but here at Word of Warning we are preparing to leap into the wintery void with our own makeshift proposal. Before that, this weekendKinetic's [INTIMATE] festival (til Sun 23 Feb) might appeal to the sonically curious; while over in Liverpool you can catch Imitating the Dog's Night of the Living Dead at the Everyman + Playhouse until Sat 22 Feb (coming to HOME in March) and Alexis Teplin's It's My Pleasure To Participate at The Bluecoat on Sat 22 Feb.

Next week (w/c 24 Feb), for us it's all about Emergency StopGap on Thu 27 Feb (6-10pm) - 13 pieces, mainly durational, dotted around NIAMOS's faded grandeur, with artists Bethany Mountain, Chris Owen, Kris Canavan, Krissi Musiol, Martin Hamblen, Natalie Wardle, Oliver Ford, Philip Bedwell, Powder Keg, Shkiesha, Susanna Amato, Tink Flaherty + TomYumSim.
It's pay what you decide, you can come and go as you please (full programme here) - but DO wrap up warmly!

Beyond Hulme, Help! I think I might be fabulous is at New Adelphi, University of Salford on Mon 24 Feb;  Made In China's Super Duper Close Up is at The Royal Exchange Theatre (26-29 Feb); and Bourgeois + Maurice's Insane Animals is at HOME (28 Feb - 15 Mar).
Further afield, Lancaster Arts has Talent Hub's Helm on Tue 25 Feb; and Nikki + JD's Knot on Fri 28 + Sat 29 Feb.  Search Party's Storm is at The Media Factory in Preston on Wed 26 Feb;  DaDaFest Scratch is at The Unity, Liverpool on Thu 27 Feb; and the New Queers on The Block Weekender with Oozing GloopJackie Hagan + Mandla Rae is in Blackpool (27-29 Feb).

The following week (w/c 2 Mar) Transitions Dance is in Sale; Sophie Woolley at The Royal Exchange Theatre; Figs In Wigs at HOME; and Willy Hudson at The Lowry; plus Manchester Jewish Museum's Festival of Belonging begins at Central Library. Elsewhere, James Wilton is in Huddersfield and Laura Van Hulle at Edgehill.

And so... back to the logistics of 13 pieces in a night... hoping to see you at StopGap!
