PROUD AND LOUD ARTS DO PYRAMUS AND THISBE AT CONTACT
 

Star date: 15th November 2015

SALFORD GROUP PROUD AND LOUD TACKLES LOVE AND SACRIFICE

Pyramus and Thisbe
Thursday 26th (7:30pm) and Friday 27th November (2:30pm and 7:30pm)
Contact £10/£6

Salford arts group, Proud and Loud, is bringing a wazzed up, digitally enhanced re-working of Ovid's Pyramus and Thisbe to Contact in Manchester. The classic tale of forbidden love and sacrifice is told through a relationship that exists through social media, gaming and blogging.

Full details here...


Disability-led Proud and Loud Arts is a unique theatre company. Its work is quality, surreal, moving and at times hilarious. Since it burst on the Salford arts scene at the 2005 Salford Film Festival with the stunning short movie, What Are You Waiting For?, its members have performed live at The Lowry and on tour, and produced a series of voracious videos articulating their views.

The question in that first film What Are You Waiting For? was eventually answered by one kid, who looked at the viewers and replied `For the world to change'...

Rather than waiting for the world to change, however, the group is currently looking to change the arts world, exploring the use of state of the art technology to include integrated live digital performance on stage in its latest show, which premieres at Contact in Manchester on November 26th and 27th.

Written by top playwright, Cathy Crabb, and directed by Tom Hogan, Proud and Loud's version of Ovid's Pyramus and Thisbe re-works the classic tale of forbidden love and sacrifice...

Ryan and Sophie's relationship exists online through social media, gaming and blogging. Over in reality, they are prevented from seeing each other by their feuding parents but when they devise a secret plan to meet they face unexpected and explosive consequences.

"Pyramus and Thisbe is interesting as it's two families who will not allow their children to see each other based on some prejudice" Tom Hogan, told the Salford Star during rehearsals for the play earlier this year... "Whatever that prejudice is, doesn't matter..."

Expect another unique on-stage experience from Proud and Loud Arts...

Pyramus and Thisbe
Thursday 26th 7:30pm
Friday 27th November 2:30pm (followed by discussion) and 7:30pm

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.
