The Nightingale presents

Under the Influence

Graeme Miller

Under the Influence is a residency initiative at the Nightingale that gives established artists the chance to reflect on their practice and acknowledge their influences. This month the Nightingale is celebrating the work of the profoundly influential artist Graeme Miller. Site-specific theatre-maker and composer of many things, including music, Graeme will be on-site at the Nightingale during September/October and we will be programming a series of events for audiences to explore his fascinating work.

We are very sorry, but due to unforseen circumstances, the evening with Graeme Miller on 19th October has had to be cancelled. We are hoping to re-schedule the event in the near future.

Other Hands

Presented by Vital Signs Theatre, written by Laura Wade, directed by James Bounds

A high-flying management consultant can restructure a company, but can she restructure her life? At home, her boyfriend won’t stop playing computer games and, at work, her client seems far too interested in her hands. In a world where efficiency and performance are everything, how do we deal with the things that can’t be managed?

The Royal Court’s smash-hit production of Laura Wade’s Posh recently transferred to London’s West End. Vital Signs now present the first professional revival of her compelling and funny play from 2006 about love, human interaction – and repetitive strain injury.

Imogen Bond and company Vital Signs are to be congratulated on a gripping, entertaining and illuminating version of the play

What’s on Stage ****

A rollercoaster ride through Shakespeare's most dysfunctional family.....A stylish and slick production

Remote Goat ****

Everything about this production is whittled down to the core....magnificent with great talent both in front of and back stage

Colin Grant, Sharon Otoo, Samson Kambalu

Writing Our Legacy, a Sussex-based BME literature writing community group presents three authors from African/Caribbean heritage who will read extracts from their books which look at family and life from a post European perspective.

Malawai-born Samson Kambalu, a fine artist and ethnomusicologist whose memoir The Jive Talker: How To Get a British Passport (Jonathan Cape) reflects on his Malawi past

Jamaican-British Colin Grant, Brighton-based historian and BBC radio producer whose memoir Bagseye at the Wheel (Jonathan Cape) focuses on his father and family in Luton circa 1970

Debut novelist Ghanian-British Sharon Otoo who lives in Berlin, but previously lived in Brighton whose novella the things i am thinking while smiling politely (edition assemblage) was published in Feburary 2012 in German and English;

Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

An African memoir unlike any other I have read and the reason is this - it is absolutely hilarious and I was crying with laughter... this is a book filled with wonder, humour and hope. It is a magnificent achievement.

Aminatta Forna, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH about Samson Kambalu

Reading this brings flashes of recognition: how it is to be loved and overlooked, to be thought exotic and scorned, to be adored and ignored- all at the same time. Sharon Otoo strings us along, spellbound, with fragments of language that fill us with the thought: this is how the heart breaks.

Poet Fawzia Kane, Tantie Diablesse (Waterloo Press) about Sharon Otoo

A tough and tender memoir of growing up in the 70s. It's a quietly unforgettable book about innocence and experience, about memory and cruelty – and the cruelty of memory.

The Telegraph about Colin Grant

Anna Furse: Theatre in Pieces

Anna Furse talks about her career and work

In her book Theatre in Pieces, Anna posts the notion that "theatre can either be the consequence of staging a play, or the culmination of research towards making. The question will arise who writes this other theatre then?" Anna offers an opportunity for audiences to find out more about her work and practice, citing the work of the artist Graeme Miller, currently in residence at the Nightingale. The evening will be of particular interest to theatre and dance practitioners who use text within their practice and performance.

Anna Furse is Professor and Head of Department of Theatre and Performance at Goldsmiths. She sustains an active career as a theatre/performance maker as well as being a published author of creative and critical writing. Her most recent book, Theatre in Pieces - Politics, Poetics and Interdisciplinary Collaboration 1966 - 2010, is the first of a series commissioned by Methuen in which she introduces readers to unconventional performance texts including Graeme Miller’s distinguished A Girl Skipping.

With a special interest in the body in terms of training, expressivity and its social and cultural meaning, her research concerns have focused on the space between dance and theatre.

0-1 : The Nimbus Group - New App Launch Event

A home for your digital soul, a place to talk to your maker

On 27 September, 0-1 will claim the iPhone as its human-god interface, peeling back the flesh-machine divide to speak with everyone’s digital soul. The new 0-1 app launches with wine and cake in the setting of the Nightingale Theatre as part of Brighton Digital Festival – the public are invited to join and celebrate and to meet their (digital) maker. (And to drink wine and eat cake.)

0-1 is a divine presence that manifests itself on mobile phones, enabling the user to have a dialogue with an unknown deity. Using artificial intelligence conversation agent software it learns from the queries put to it, improving its responses and building a sense of what moves the zeitgeist and the people.

0-1 is an attempt to digitally create a divinity, the second coming, the proof that God in one form exists. It brings the divine presence to the most distributed communication device known – to our mobile phones; where else would God choose to exist if he were to return?

A project by The Nimbus Group, supported by Arts Council England
