Return of the Salon

Food and Culture

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are your hosts at TripSpace Kitchen for Return Of The Salon, featuring their Venice Biennale duet Body Not Fit For Purpose, Francesca Fargion playing Chris Newman's Piano Sonata No. 1, and Christine De Smedt and Eszter Salamon performing Dance#2

Burrows' and Fargion's Body Not Fit For Purpose clashes angry politics against empty dancing, raising questions in the midst of our laughter.

Newman's Piano Sonata No. 1, written in 1982 and performed here by Francesca Fargion, sounds like a punk version of Beethoven, with absurd grammar and delightfully erratic logic.

Christine De Smedt and Eszter Salamon are both key choreographers of the conceptual and post-conceptual European dance scene, whose work has rarely been seen in the UK. In Dance#2 the two artists challenge each other in a game of word and gesture, where meanings slowly dissipate.

The event includes a plate of food eaten together (included in the ticket price), and the bar will be open all evening.

Limited capacity - only 50 tickets on sale

"WE MUST MOVE ON THROUGH THE WORLD"

Wasn't expecting that ... which was kind of what I was expecting

Audience member, Hastings Salon

...occasionally feeling gloomy during some performance or other, I’ve wished that a fed- up theater goblin would whisk away the show I’m watching and deposit Burrows and Fargion in its place.

Return of the Salon

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion invite you ...

This salon features stand up comedian Otiz Canelloni, a selection of Howard Skempton's accordion pieces and Burrows and Fargion's Body Not Fit For Purpose.

Otiz Cannelloni is a renowned stand up comedian, whose deadpan humour treads the border between failed magician and conceptual genius.

Howard Skepton's miniature accordion pieces sound like perfectly formed questions, and are one of the hidden joys of contemporary music.

Burrows' and Fargion's Body Not Fit For Purpose was commissioned by the 2014 Venice Biennale, and clashes angry politics against empty dancing, revealing how much expressive power even a small gesture, a tiny variation of tone or rhythm, can possess.

Return of the Salon

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion invite you ...

Internationally acclaimed performance duo Burrows and Fargion invite you to join them at The Printworks Hastings for the first instalment of Return Of The Salon, an evening of serious enjoyment featuring "The Cow Piece", Professor Liz Aggiss' "Bloody Nora" and Chris Newman's "Piano Sonata No. 1" played live by Francesca Fargion.

Burrows' and Fargion's "The Cow Piece" is a riotous celebration of the limits of logic, where two tables become the staging ground for 12 plastic cows who dance, sing, speak, think, sleep, go, come and die in a series of ritual executions which have amused and disconcerted audiences around the world.

Newman's "Piano Sonata No. 1", written in 1982 and performed here by Francesca Fargion, sounds like a punk version of Beethoven, with absurd grammar and delightfully erratic logic.

The evening ends with Professor Liz Aggiss' barnstormingly sordid "Bloody Nora", performed by Eleanor Sikorski and Flora Wellesley Wesley, who undo all previously held convictions about contemporary dance while making horrible, joyous sense.

Limited capacity - only 50 tickets on sale

There are few performers who can hold an audience captive like this double act... the timing of every note, shrug, laugh and gesture is awesome

Home Straight

A new company of young people from East Brighton

What does home mean to you? The Nightingale and Hydrocracker is proud to present 'Home Straight', a new play made with and performed by young people in East Brighton at Brighton Racecourse, one of the Brighton's best-known landmarks.

'Home Straight' explores the stories and people of this frequently overlooked part of the city. Focusing on the same house over four different eras, it takes audiences on a promenade journey from the 1800s, when railway workers were busy constructing the brand new London to Brighton Railway, through the destruction of WW2, and the social transformation of the 1960s, up until the present day.

Written by Frank McCabe (founding associate, Two Bins, writer: Ten Men, The Lives of John Bindon), it is directed by Julian Kerridge (director SEAMONSTERS and the internet drama series CELIA AND CHLOE co-produced by Disney and seen by over three million people in seven countries) and further supported by production manager Gabriel Burden and designer Victoria Johnstone.

12 young people have been brought together for a Firecracker production, guided and supported by Frank and Julian, and have spent two months developing and rehearsing 'Home Straight'. They now present two performances at Brighton Racecourse.

We want to encourage a world of creators, of inventors, of contributors, because this world that we live in, this interactive world, is ours.

The Nightingale presents

HOST: Light of My Life (Preview)

Jess Thom and Matthew Pountney

What do lamposts smell like? Following the success of Backstage in Biscuitland (Brighton Festival 2015), writers Jess Thom and Matthew Pountney present Light of My Life, a new work commissioned by the Nightingale for its relay performance project HOST.

HOST is a format that allows a performance of any discipline to be passed from one person to another in the style of a relay. Its first incarnation was in May 2014, when Tim Crouch's An Act of Union was performed to and by Brighton Fringe audiences.

In Light of My Life, Jess and Matthew invite audiences to step into Jess's world through a script that playfully and poetically explores Jess's daily interactions with a lamppost she can see from her bedroom window.

Jess Thom is an artist and playworker who has Tourettes syndrome, a neurological condition that causes involuntary movements and noises called tics. She and Matthew Pountney have been friends for more than ten years and are the cofounders of Touretteshero, which celebrates the humour and creativity of Tourettes.

A cleverly constructed one-on-one piece…can be passed on forever

The Guardian, on HOST: An Act Of Union

The overwhelming gift of this free show is its extraordinary potency as an experience, immediately intimate and arresting…HOST raises all kinds of intriguing questions about the nature of performance as well as that of art as exchange

Total Theatre, on HOST: An Act of Union

Truly engaging, often joyous…an adventure in every way

the Nightingale presents Under the Influence at The Old Market

Nicki Jackowska: Behold

Nicki Jackowska with Lou Beckerman, Alison Curtis-Jones, Caroline Pick, Mick Sands, Merlin and Polina Shepherd, Robert White, Hagit Yakira

This event arises from Nicki Jackowska’s poem Behold, and to make an artistic contribution to the 70th Anniversary Year of the liberation of Europe’s Concentration Camps. The event is not based on memorial, but the dedication of contemporary artists to evoke aspects of the Holocaust by means of their own form of expression, their own artistic expertise. The evening's sequence will tell it’s own story.

Under the Influence is a Nightingale initiative that invites creative people to explore the themes that have inspired and affected them over the course of their careers. This will be a special evening of dance, film, music, improvised vocals, pipes and collaborations.

Its grief has penetrated its syntax, and when there’s that kind of penetration - it changes the reader’s breathing.

John Berger

The language manages to be at once incisive, moving and challenging. Behold is a poem that deserves to be heard and read widely, and 2015 might be a fitting year for that to happen.

Mona Grainer-Salim, Sylph Editions

Jackowska is incapable of simple polemic. Mystery is an indispensable part of her work. It covers everything she touches with a shimmering veil of uncertainty.

Gordon Weetman on Behold, The Literateur Magazine
