The 9th annual Contemporary Issues in Arts Management Conference will be held on 23rd - 27th May at the Contemporary Urban Centre, Liverpool. The conference will feature 32 future leaders of the performing arts giving their insight into the specific challenges facing theatre, music, film, television and new media in 2011 and beyond. This is a unique opportunity to hear about the future of our industries, from the future of our industries.
After the city-wide processional extravaganza that was last November's Sound Relay, the a.P.A.t.T. Orchestra return with the first in a 4-part concert series - Musical Settings - that will see them explore different environments, both physical and musical.
Musical Settings Part 1: On the Earth, finds the orchestra in the bubble within a bubble that is Sefton Park - a landscaped slice of rurality within the constructed urbanity of the city of Liverpool. The programmed music deals with themes of simplification and distance from the chaos of modern life.

The Everyman is dead. Long live the Everyman.
The last time I saw Dave Morrissey on stage at the Liverpool Everyman, we were both members of the Everyman Youth Theatre. He often performed with his friend Ian Davies, later to call himself Ian Hart.
The pair were extraordinary for their great focus and clarity, focus that would be remarkable even in jobbing actors, and all the more so as they were teenagers improvising. Morrissey and Hart always had presence, and you knew, however young they were, that you were in the presence of talent that would out. (This was the same talent and intention we saw in our bare workshop space when a young woman did an absolutely captivating 10 minute improvisation on the unpromising theme of ‘feeding the ducks’. Even at 12, we were spellbound. She was Cathy Tyson, later to star in Mona Lisa.)
Morrissey’s Macbeth is a man’s man, very present and very solid, and the actor brings his full range of talents to bear.
