Word of Warning presents Emergency
A day-long free marathon of the bold, the bizarre and the beautiful.
Saturday 13 October 2012, Manchester
Word of Warning’s second performance collection launches with a manic weekend of all things live on Friday 12 and Saturday 13 October 2012. Presented as part of the Manchester Weekender, the city explodes in a wave of all things cultural.
The 13th Emergency is the biggest yet: 40 live works in a daytime of installations and interactions at BLANKSPACE and Castlefield Gallery, followed by an evening programme of sit-down performance at Z-arts – and as ever, all free:
A man rolling a giant ball of rubber bands around the city; a woman emerging from a bed of earth; iconic communist iconography through the medium of yoga; and a bear having a shave… canapé-wielding mirror-twins; a Sex and the City homage and a rock-ukulele-pop concert. 1 day, 3 venues, 40 live works.
Emergency takes place on Sat 13 Oct at BLANKSPACE + Castlefield Gallery (12-5pm) and at Z-arts (6-10pm) FREE. Participating artists include:
