Wherever I look with you

a visual art performance by Marina Tsartsara

Wherever I look with you' is a trip. It is an autobiography in the form of visual art performance that explores virtual/physical realities.

Virtual spaces, objects and people blend with the real ones in the performance space through the performer’s movement. In this way a surprising illusion of memory spaces invites the audience to experience and explore the trip not only through their intellect and emotions but also physically. 'Wherever I look with you' forms part of a series of short visual art performances. The specific one explores the social layering of the self and the search for clarity through repetition.

Performers: Soline Pillet, Marina Tsartsara
Videographer: Marina Tsartsara
Sound design: Michail Mavronas
Costume Designer: Emma Sandham-King

REQUIEM 21- An elegy for the 21st Century

Molly and Me

As part of Molly and Me's Nightingale residency we invite you to a work in progress showing.

With 2012 supposedly being the end of The World as we know it, Molly and Me look back on all that has gone. With an absurdist ritual of songs, text, dancing and the playing of instruments, Molly and Me dissect each year from 2001 to 2012. Friends, lovers, objects and beliefs are dispatched with the help of group sing-a-longs.

Molly and Me is Catherine Hoffman (UK) and Molly Haslund (DK). Together they create performances which converge with musical compositions for galleries, theatre spaces and music venues for Europe and the Uk. Their latest show TRAMP has been selected as part of the Re.Act Feminism performing archive touring European galleries until 2013.

You can also join us after the show to give your feedback for the development of REQUIEM 21.

REQUIEM 21 is supported by the Arts Council England and The Danish Arts Council.

Sandpit Arts presents Bulbul 2012

Four writers. Four locations. One theme: the Arab Spring.

Far away from 24-hour rolling news networks, these tense, witty, absurd and melancholy plays teach us something about what it means to be a human being yearning for freedom.

Tunnel
by Mags Chalcraft, directed by Tanushka Marah

Gather Ye Rosebuds
by Silva Semerciyan, directed by Diyan Zora

The Cost Of Eggs
by Yamina Bakiri, directed by Tommy Lexén

Waiting For Summer
by Peter Raynard, directed by Seíf Shehata

Bulbul 2012 is Sandpit Arts’ first annual playwriting competition. Writers from around the world were invited to submit 30-minute plays in response to the Arab Spring. The four winners were chosen by an independent panel of judges: Steven Brett (artistic director, The Nightingale), Chris Taylor (director, New Writing South), Julian Caddy (managing director, Brighton Fringe), Diyan Zora (creative director, Swivel Theatre Company) and Tanushka Marah (artistic director, Company:Collisions). The winners will also receive a year’s membership of New Writing South.

Special Relationships

Chris Fogg will be reading extracts from his recently published book

Special Relationships explores different meanings of home and belonging, the way our loyalties and allegiances shift over time.

Chris Fogg recalls his own northern, working-class childhood growing up through the 50’s and 60’s, trawling our collective past to shine a particular light on more recent events from both sides of the Atlantic, as well as from other ‘lost empires’ in India and Africa. These ‘special relationships’ are both personal and political, individual and shared, and are shot through with a strong narrative drive. What ultimately emerges is a kind of hard won innocence measured out across the years.

We are extremely sorry, but due to unexpected circumstances, this evening is cancelled

Chris Fogg takes us on a magical, whirlwind tale of his world with eyes and ears open and heart at full throttle. Here is a collection to be read, if you can, at a breathless sitting, and savoured.

Irene Willis, Pushcart Poetry Prize nominee and Winner of the Violet Reed Haas Award

Chris Fogg is a natural story-maker, who delights in reaching out to, and connecting with, his audience. These poems cut an arc across our times – they are travels of the heart, and invite us to travel with them.

Chris Waters, Winner of Bridport and Plough Poetry Prizes, author of Arisaig

Stirring, brain-whirring and playful – chock full of delights.

Quentin Cooper, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s The Material World

We would like to invite you to a benefit night for The Ebaahi Foundation Day Shelter which was set up to provide children from the rural villages of Ghana the opportunity to learn to read and write.

The Foundation was operating out of a classroom, but unfortunately they have had to move. The rainy season is about to set in and they have been forced to set up under a tree until funds can be raised to build a classroom.

A great night of entertainment with live music and contributions from a line-up of splendid artists ... A sell out at £10 a ticket will guarantee that we will raise enough funds to build the classroom!

Mind The Gap

devised by Rachel Close

"Poetry and mystery…all that enlarges tangible reality" Luis Bunuel

An absorbing video installation based around the aural testimony of four women working as prostitutes. Poetry, constructed scenes and dialogue create a space to examine the gaps between experience and selfhood, and between subject and audience.

Deja vu moments, lost memories, familiar faces and new surroundings. Walk through a dream, a nightmare, a poem, a day: all in the life of someone else.

In this four part video installation we hear from four women who all live on the margins in some way. What happens when our worlds collide, when dreams merge into reality, when we can't see the gaps?

This drama-doc provides a unique platform for rarely heard voices with an injection of "poetry and mystery”.
