The Cake Tin Foundation presents Mother’s Ruin: Mother’s Bloomers this Friday at 9pm at The Kings Arms in Salford.
Mother’s Ruin continues its expansion into new venues by hosting its latest event at The Kings Arms in Salford, occupying the recently-renovated upstairs studio space. Mother’s Bloomers will be a dedicated space for artists to be bold, adventurous and take risks with their work whilst benefiting from professional development and support in advance.
Performers for the first event include comedian and performer Debs Gatenby, previewing new material ahead of performances this autumn at Contact (Manchester); Kate O’Donnell who wowed audiences at Queer Contact 2014 with her comedic autobiographical cabaret; funny and surreal stories from Fat Roland, host of Manchester’s literary platform, Bad Language; playful and interactive theatre from Paul O’Donnell, one of three artists to be commissioned for Works Ahead 2014; a performance lecture with a difference from Patrick Carroll-Fogg; and subversive operatics from David Hon Man Chu.
Artistic Director Lisa Lee comments, ‘We’re creating more opportunities for artists to present new ideas and material in front of an audience, as well as offering mentoring support, documentation and feedback. The Kings’ Arms is the perfect space to present these works, and we’re excited to be giving Mother’s Ruin’s audience and artists a new experience.’
