Performances: Thursday 16 January 6.30pm and Friday 17 January 6.30pm
Performance students present an original piece of political theatre, directed by Adam Zane, centred around the recent homophobic laws passed in Russia and the build-up to the Winter Olympics, due to be held in Sochi in February.
They will also be focusing on the legacy of the similar UK law ‘Section 28’ and the famous Manchester protest against it. Students will use verbatim theatre and multi-media to devise a piece that will be performed at the Adelphi Studio before featuring at Contact Theatre in Manchester on Saturday 8 February as part of the ‘To Russia with Love - The Alternative Opening Ceremony’ and an ‘Alternative Athlete’s Parade’ events in Manchester’s Gay Village on Friday 7 February.
Adam Zane is director of the highly respected Hope Theatre and returns to the School of Arts & Media after the success of ‘It’s A Beautiful Life’, which he directed with Salford students last year.
Presented in collaboration with Hope Theatre Company and Salford LGBT Youth Group, Pride 2014 and Contact Theatre.

The performances are part of a double bill also featuring Kafka's Dick by Alan Bennett, performed at the Robert Powell Theatre, Allerton Building, University of Salford, on Thursday 16 and Friday 17 January at 8.00pm.
