Dubbed the 'rock' season, Word of Warning's Autumn/Winter programme kicks off with Action Hero vs. GO Project in a live music 're-boot' of Frontman, co-commissioned by Inbetween Time Productions and hÅb.
Poised on the edge of catastrophe, Frontman is a furiously loud, raucous reproduction of the all the best gigs you never saw for an audience who like it loud.
Not to take anything away from the show and its special collaboration this also marks a potentially emotional return to the railway arch formerly known as greenroom - now live music venue Gorilla.
Emergency - 1 day, 3 venues, 40 live works Sat 13 Oct, 12-5pm, FREE
BLANKSPACE, 43 Hulme Street M15 6AW
Castlefield Gallery, 2 Hewitt Street, Manchester, M15 4GB
Our thirteenth Emergency spans 3 venues and 40 pieces in 1 day, promising to be the biggest and busiest yet.
The daytime programme sees installations and small 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.
