Contact In the city programme announced
In The City Part Three kicks off with the moving and hilarious No Kids at The Lowry, followed by a special Queer Contact weekender. This taster of some of our most-loved festival events includes Outspoken, a celebration of Manchester’s queer women and non-binary artists; the famous Manchester Vogue Ball, showcasing global vogue culture; plus Mothers Ruin and Queer Contact at YES.
They are thrilled to be presenting the critically acclaimed Fuel, National Theatre, and Leeds Playhouse co-production of Barber Shop Chronicles with Royal Exchange Theatre.
As part of Resistance in Residence, a British Council programme, they will present When it Breaks it Burns in collaboration with Transform. An extraordinary story all the way from Brazil about the life changing high school occupations of 2015 and 2016.
Contact also have not one, but two exciting Contact Young Company (CYC) co-productions. Ramping Up, created with Battersea Arts Centre's Homegrown Company, will explore issues around accessibility in a post-Brexit society. CYC then join forces with Young Identity in OLD TOOLS > NEW MASTERS ? NEW FUTURE asking; what does a postcolonial future look like?
