Word of Warning, the theatre company that originated from greenroom, returns for its 14th year next week with a new performance described as the micro-marathon of the beautiful, bizarre and bold. Emergency 2013 showcases the best of contemporary live performances, offering a variety of styles and experiences throughout one day including Maiada Aboud’s Eucharist, Frances Kay’s feat of scaffolding endurance, Rebecca Bowley’s transformation of a gallery into a billowing sea, plus intimate one-on-ones such as Mike Chavez-Dawson’s (pictured, performing Whatever You See) palm reading. The free event is spread across two different locations, beginning at BLANKSPACE and continuing at Z-arts. Audiences are welcome to stay for the entire duration of the event or just to take a dip in to the art. Word of Warning has seen hundreds of artists pass through its doors and has hosted over 25 pieces of work with the intention to make art accessible for everyone. Its season continues with The Ugly Sisters (Fri 11 & Sat 12 Oct, Contact), Domestic (Fri 8 – Sun 17 Nov, Cooper House) and The Falsettos (Fri 29 Nov, Z-arts) – visit the company’s website below for more information.
