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

SALFORD COUNCIL U-TURN ON NURSERY CLOSURE CONSULTATION

Star date: 22nd February 2018 

HUMILIATING CLIMBDOWN FOR SALFORD CITY MAYOR

Just two days after announcing that a consultation would begin on 26th February for closing Salford's five nurseries, this afternoon Salford Council announced that it is to be paused for a month.

Less than a week ago a huge Save Our Nurseries public meeting voted, against the wishes of Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, and Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, for the closure consultation to be stopped. In the face of growing anger from the community the Council has been forced into a humiliating climb down.

Pickets were mounted at all entrances of the University, where UCU official Matt Arrowsmith told the Salford Star, "Our members feel this is the last straw...Nobody wants to be on strike but this is our last line of defence."

SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERY CLOSURE GOVERNMENT BOMBSHELL

Star date: 20th February 2018

GOVERNMENT REVEALS THAT SALFORD COUNCIL NEVER ASKED FOR FUNDING FLEXIBILITY

Salford City Council recently announced that it was proposing to close all five of its nurseries. And yesterday Children's Lead Member, Lisa Stone, said that it was "a direct result of Government changes, which reduce the use of Dedicated Schools Grant."

However, this afternoon a spokesperson for the Department for Education told the Salford Star that "Any council that had concerns…could apply to the department for increased flexibility" in the Grant's use. They added that "The Department has not received a request from Salford for increased flexibility…" This is bound to increase pressure on the City Mayor to hold off the consultation on the closures.

SALFORD RED DEVILS AUDITOR ‘CASTS DOUBT’ ABOUT ‘COMPANY’S ABILITY TO CONTINUE’

Star date: 19th February 2018

SALFORD REDS ACCOUNTS SHOW ALMOST £9MILLION LIABILITIES

New accounts published for the Salford Red Devils show that the company made losses of over £700,000 last year and that it has net liabilities of almost £9million, including the £1million loan from Salford City Council.

Despite the directors insisting that restructures and changes within the club forecast a 'modest profit', its auditor states that the conditions "indicate the existence of a material uncertainty which may cast significant doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern".
