The autumn season at Contact in Manchester boasts 17 shows and events to welcome new CEO Keisha Thompson and kick off the venue’s 50th birthday.
From neurodivergent cabaret to a carbon-neutral dance party and tennis and poetry bonanza...
Contact’s Young Company will première a new show Halo directed by Keisha inspired by the Halo Code, a campaign fighting for the protection and celebration of black hair and hairstyles.
In November, Contact premières 14%, Keisha’s new play set in a train carriage. This two-hander sees protagonists Nadia and Nik attempt to quantify their Britishness.
