####What is Word of Warning and where did it come from?
Simply put, Word of Warning is a one-stop shop for the bonkers, the beautiful and the bizarre of live performance: an attempt to keep alive the best of the 25 year greenroom legacy and to introduce new people to the possibilities of seeing live work.
####Who’s it for?
Anyone looking for a different night out.
We don’t want to put you off by talking labels – yes there’ll be theatre, live art, dance – but the aim is to be anything but elitist, po-faced or off-putting, so if you like comedy, music, gaming or just a stimulating evening – there’ll be something you might want to take a chance on.
Oh, and of course it’s for anyone seriously missing greenroom!
####Who is Word of Warning?
Ok – well to come clean, it’s largely just one, pretty obsessive, person.
My name’s Tamsin Drury and I run an organisation called hÅb, which was greenroom’s partner for over a decade. You might not know hÅb but you might know some of our events – like emergency (a lunatic free explosion of 40+ shows in a day and a half) and Hazard (random sprees of eccentricity throughout the City Centre).
I’ve been around a while, a really long while… and in that time, I’ve been responsible for making the Arndale Tower flash, wrapping Cathedral Gardens in 7km of hazard tape and encouraging a mass audience conga and a glitter-cannon Hallelujah chorus! On the less eccentric side over the years, hÅb has also worked with literally hundreds of young artists to help them create new pieces of theatre and dance.
Please send programming enquiries to me at email@example.com
I’m joined in this lunacy by John Franklin, greenroom’s long time programme coordinator and by an assortment of the people who populated that leaky railway arch!
