I am a writer and teacher, out and about in the world but with Nottingham never far from my heart.
An enthralling evening of performance from Cartwheel Arts
Manchester's Contact Theatre has a history of putting on energetic, interesting and thought-provoking shows, while also carrying out sterling work in the community. The finale of the Attitude Project promises to be no different.
In putting the project together, Contact teamed up with Cartwheel Arts, who in turn worked with youth groups across the Greater Manchester area to create the piece. Described as "an interactive show case of MCing, poetry, digital arts, drama and visual arts", the primary aim of the Attitude Project is to examine the perception of gender issues amongst younger people.
March 10th marks the finale of the project, and will see a fast-paced program of performances, all of which were devised by members of youth groups from Rochdale, Bury or Oldham. The performance will feature Kate Bradnam, Martin Visceral, Keisha Thompson as well as members of the PGB Theatre Company and other performers.
The performance kicks off at 7:30pm and is free for young people and the adults accompanying them. Tickets can be reserved at the Contact Theatre Manchester's website. Those travelling to the event from Rochdale can also arrange transport through Cartwheel Arts.
You will find the distinctive Contact Theatre building on Oxford Road, near Manchester University and just past Manchester Academy heading out of the city. It's sure to be a fascinating and inspiring evening of performance, so make contact with Contact and secure yourself a ticket!
