Lead by Paschale Straiton of Red Herring Productions who has 15 years experience of clowning and has worked extensively with Gerry Flanagan and Mick Barnfather.
Brighton is synonymous with fun and frivolity and has boasted its fair share of comics, from Max Miller – our very own Cheeky Chappy, through to Count Arthur Strong and Jo Neary. We will learn about joke structure, work through some fun exercises together to generate some good 'uns and explore how to sock it to ‘em.

Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

The Nightingale welcomes the duo back again for the fourth time to share their work. "Some of it is startlingly wise, some of it is preposterously funny, and all of it effortlessly transcends pretension." The Guardian

Burrows and Fargion describe what they do as 'handmade and human- scale'. They build with simple, non-spectacular elements but arrive often at a deceptive virtuosity, radiating delight even as it makes the audience think.

Over the past ten years the two artists have built a body of duets which juxtapose the formality of music composition with a radical and open approach to performance and audiences. Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece are a conversation with the structure of John Cage's Lecture On Nothing, at once a homage to and questioning of a way of thinking that has underpinned so much dance and performance in the last thirty years. Last performed at The Basement as part of Brighton Festival 2011, this is a wonderful chance to enjoy the work again.

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. Five stars.

Judith Mackrell, The Guardian, on Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece

Now, what about Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece? Both are dazzling, and they belong together. The simplicity of means in Burrows and Fargion's work and the sheer fun that pervades it seduce you into loving it. All the while it's inexorably revealing its genius.’

Toby Tobias, artsjournal.com, New York

...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.’

Deborah Jowitt, DanceBeat, on Cheap Lecture and The Cow Piece, New York

Fragments of Clay - work in progress

PEADER KIRK AND IAN MORGAN

How do you feed an insatiable desire? Jump off, and all will be gone, riding on the wind...

The deal is closed, the day is done. Falling, the night is falling. A chair, a screen, a phone and the lights of the city below. All it would take is a single step- outside, onto the ledge, a gust of wind and he'd be away. Falling, falling like a fragment of clay.

Uniting physical perfromance, postdramatic theatre and electronica Fragments of Clay is a solo piece exploring the hubris of being on the top and the inevtiable fall that accompanies it. Drawing on interviews with risk-takers from base-jumpers to brokers and an escapologist in order to ask why now, more than ever, we are seduced by danger.

Novelty Music Making Workshop

Lead by Toby Park from Spymonkey

VARIETY WORKSHOPS FOR YOUR DELECTATION - Join us for a series of practical workshops, which will introduce the work of some wonderful local characters. We will learn some routines and explore performance techniques with a 21st century twist, having a lot of fun in the process. These workshops are suitable for people with little or no performance, dance or musical experience but may also introduce some useful new skills to the seasoned pro.

Musical novelty acts have always been a mainstay of the variety and popular entertainment tradition - musical saws, bottle orchestras and Les Dawson's off-key piano routine, through to Stomp and the Lost and Found Orchestra. We will play with some simple musical elements that can turn a novice into a maestro and will investigate how music can provide structure for a comic number.

Fat Man - in progress showing

Martin Bonger - Move to Stand

Orpheus is onstage. He’s doing stand-up for the gods.

The Nightingale is proud to have hosted a development period with the award-winning Move to Stand. This is a free, in progress showing of a new work that splices the everyday with the celestial.

A contemporary take on Greek mythology, this haunting tale of lost love sees a man desperately fighting to recapture his faded gifts. Can Orpheus stop eating, and find a way to move on?

Martin Bonger (NIE’s North North North, The Plasticine Men’s Keepers) promises to deliver a surprising and gripping solo performance. There might even be a song.

Presented by Move to Stand in association with Little Mighty.
Director: Alex Swift
