Tonight – Wednesday 28 May, Split Britches,RUFF


Following yesterday’s fascinating public lecture by Professor Valerie Traub (University of Michigan and Simon Visiting Professor, Manchester), ‘Anatomy, Cartography, and the Prehistory of Normality’, and an inspiring ‘Green Screening’ workshop by Peggy Shaw and Lois Weaver at Contact, tonight Peggy Shaw will be performing in her latest show RUFF (directed by Lois Weaver).

Split Britches, RUFF


RUFF is renowned performer’s Peggy Shaw’s tribute to those who have kept her company these 68 years, a lament for the absence of those who disappeared into the dark holes left behind by her stroke in 2011 and a celebration that her brain is able to fill the blank green screens with new insights.

RUFF will be followed by a post-show Q&A called ‘Ask the Doctor’, with local stroke clinician Dr Khalil Kawafi, when guests will have the opportunity to ask questions about stroke.

There are still a number of tickets available for the performance. For booking information, please visit: http://contactmcr.com/whats-on/12873-split-britches-ruff/)
