New Queers on the Block is a fresh night of innovative performance touring the UK during September and October 2018. The night showcases international queer work from Rachael Young, Hester Chillingworth, Stacy Makishi & Malik Nashad Sharpe hosted by Ophelia Bitz. In each town or city, performers will be joined by a specially commissioned local LGBTQ+ artist.

 

Venues and festivals in Hastings, Blackpool, Folkestone and Bradford will receive and champion radical queer-led work. Led by The Marlborough Theatre in Brighton, this new touring scheme will see artists engaging with local audiences for the first time, through a Local Ambassadors Programme created to reach out to non-theatre attending audiences.

 

Expect shows about being a queer black woman channelling the power of Grace Jones, memories of a queer childhood, small but perfectly (per)formed piece with teeth, and black melancholy through the legacy of Tupac.

KILLING TIME WORKSHOP

Z-Arts, Manchester 20th November, 6pm - 9pm

Do you kill your creative ideas before they’re born? Do you notice that the more time you have, the less you get done? Are you constantly getting in your own way?

Introducing Killing Time!  

 

This workshop galvanizes participants to:  

Move faster than think  

Create faster than critique  

Resist resistance  

Pulverize procrastination.

 

Killing Time is a free workshop for artists of colour who are curious about live art and performance. One must have a willingness to try out new ideas and an adventurous spirit to walk out into the unknown.

To request a place, please email  divergency@habmcr.org

THE COMFORTER

The Lowry, Manchester. In association with Word of Warning.

Stacy Makishi

The Comforter // 7pm

Part ritual; part prayer; part rowdy revivalist rally, The Comforter is a rite of passage that reclaims spirituality and proposes a new perspective on church. Exchanging psalms and sacrament for 80’s/90’s pop culture, it draws inspiration from Twin Peaks and Ingmar Bergman and throws a kiss to George Michael.

The Comforter follows the powerfully moving and absurdly humorous Vesper Time (“a gorgeous hymn…for fearlessness, truth and love” Exeunt) that toured the UK. Together they make up the first two in a three-show series about the Holy Trinity. The Comforter is the Holy Ghost of the trio and it asks the question: ‘What am I unwilling to feel?’

Stacy is a multi-award winning artist who has been making work for 30 years. Join her to explore – through meditation, ritual and disco – what it means to be fully alive and fully human.

Commissioned by The Yard Theatre, Marlborough Theatre, Norwich Arts Centre and Colchester Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and produced by Artsadmin.
