warnmcr: stormy...

As the winds of change blow through the blue heartlands and Babet blows through the remainder of the country, I find myself thinking twice about the wisdom of a trip to Transform in Leeds today.

In Liverpool, Frantic Assembly's Metamorphosis is at the Playhouse (until 21 Oct); Close to Home's Identities is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield tonight, Fri 20 Oct; Wired Aerial's As The World Turned is in St Helens on Sat 21 Oct; and Hamzeh Al Hussien's Penguin is at Leeds Playhouse Fri 20 and Sat 21 Oct.
At Transform, on Fri 20 Oct there's Miet Warlop's One Song. On Fri 20 + Sat 21 Oct there's Mexa's Pumpitopera Transatlantica, Katy Baird's Get Off, Silke Huysmans + Hannes Dereere Out of the Blue. On Sat 21 Oct only there's Nastaran Razawi Khorasani's Songs for No One and Chiara Bersani's Sottobosco.
