10p Mix Up
10p Mix Up is a collection of young artists from Manchester, nurtured creatively by Contact. Twinned with Working Title 2.0 from Mumbai, their Contacting the World show Lizard Boy was an idiosyncratic look at how India has influenced British culture.
"Our paths have crossed over the past couple of years as Contact has brought us together from a range of different backgrounds and experiences, making our company a mix up of diverse performers. Through this process we plan to explore the idiosyncrasies of our culture and hope to create a genre bending piece of theatre. Having all experienced CTW 2008 we were excited to begin the adventure of participating in CTW 2010!"
As their application activity for CTW2010, 10p Mix Up created a conga line as part of the closing event for Emergency, a showcase at local Manchester venue greenroom. They then took the conga to the streets of Manchester, got local people to join in with the artists and danced the night away.
