The Pop Magic Christmas Show

Boogaloo Stu

The race for the Festive Number One is on! So join us for the Pop Magic Christmas Show, as Boogaloo Stu attempts to create a chart-busting Christmas classic, complete with a unique promotional pop video, in just one hour.

With a spin of the Pop Wheel, Stu launches into his quest to craft a festive pop nugget. Dress in your festive finery (bauble earrings optional) and add in a dash of Phil Spector, Band Aid, Slade, Mariah Carey and East 17 into the mix and Hey Presto! Not only have you got all the ingredients for a Christmas classic, but also for a brilliant night of entertainment, too.

Audience members are invited to assist in the song-writing and recording process, culminating in a tinsel-festooned live lip-synch and dance performance to make a pop video for the song. And it's a delightful early Christmas gift when the finished song and video are uploaded to social network platforms (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) soon after the show, for all the world to see and share.

An amazing, unique experience

The Laramie Project

Written by Moises Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theatre Project

A revival of this astonishing piece by ACT's Year 2 Diploma students, directed by Janette Eddisford, comes 15 years after the original events. The Laramie Project is a true-life re-enactment of a small American town reeling in the aftermath of the homophobic murder of Matthew Shepard.

On October 7th 1998, a young gay man was discovered bound to a fence in the hills outside Laramie, Wyoming, savagely beaten and left to die in an act of brutality and hate that shocked the nation. Matthew Shepard's death provoked extreme reactions - from the GOD HATES FAGS preaching of Rev Fred Phelps to national outpouring of revulsion against hate - but for the people of Laramie the event was deeply personal and it's their voices we hear in this stunningly effective theatre piece.

Moises Kaufman and his New York Tectonic Theatre Project travelled to Laramie four weeks after the murder. Over the following eighteen months, they interviewed more than 200 people affected by the death, thus bearing witness to the massive impact on that all-American town and its search for truth and reconciliation, while all America and the whole world was watching.

We tried to tell the story of the town of Laramie. As opposed to telling the story of Matthew Shepard

Moises Kaufman

Deeply moving.... this play is Our Town with a question mark, as in could this be our town?

New York Times

You should not miss a theatrical and human event that deserves standing up for with applause, or better, silently, taking an important lesson profoundly to heart.

the Nightingale Social # 2

Hosted by kicking_k in association with New Writing South and the Nightingale

This will be the second Nightingale Social: a monthly mini-conference for Brighton's dramatic types to network (or just mingle) in a conveniently-located pub...

Simply show up, collect a colour-coded badge (to let others know if you're a writer, an actor, a director - or whatever other theatrical role) and allow us to start connecting you.

Since the Nightingale is currently experiencing unseasonal flooding, we will convene in the Grand Central's Back Bar - which will be reserved for us...

Crime and Casualty

Katie Duck and Alfredo Genovesi with guest performer Charlie Morrissey

Crime and Casualty is a performance which is created as it happens by Katie Duck and Alfredo Genovesi: two virtuosic improvisers performing here in the UK from Amsterdam, and joined for this performance by Brighton based Charlie Morrissey. The theme: Crime and Casualty was conceived by Katie Duck, and is an ironic comment on the criminal behavior that today allows for rank mercantile opportunism, and the damage that results. Katie Duck’s acclaimed performances are highly charged performance adventures in which anything might happen.

American born dancer and choreographer Katie Duck has been making performance since the early 1970’s. She is a seminal figure of the international improvisational performance scene, inspiring generations of performance makers. Her continuing collaborations with world-class musicians forms a central part of her working approach. She is a true original and a maverick who has carved out her own unique and uncompromising path in the dance world through a 40 year career.

Duck's sturdy purposefulness makes even her most arbitrary actions seem part of a life-and-death odyssey

Judith Mackrell, The Guardian

Katie Duck is the Zorba the Greek of improvisation: earthy, feeling every mode of sensuality, preposterous, irresistible, polymorphously perverse. Watching her dance is like watching her body think

Psykick Dancehall

part of Colour Out Of Space Festival

Psykick Dancehall will present a video-performance at the Nightingale, which festival-goers are invited to drop in and out of over the course of the afternoon. Doubles and dummies, automatons and imposters and, above all, errant voices and unhinged sound.

'Immediately it became room-sized, sometimes a broken bellows whispering, squeezed out sound that became several people talking to themselves.'

Drawing on their interest in Brighton-born Ann Quin’s (1936-73) debut novel Berg, Psykick Dancehall will be developing a new project at the Nightingale as part of COOS Festival. The novel tells how ‘a man called Berg, who changed his name to Greb, came to a seaside town intending to kill his father’.

Psykick Dancehall are Hannah Ellul & Ben Knight. Over the past five years they have held exhibitions, performances, presentations, creative labs, residencies and talks in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Sheffield and Munich. Hannah and Ben play as Human Heads and used to be 2/3 of Helhesten. Colour Out of Space is a festival of experimental music, film and art. It’s sixth edition runs from the 2nd - 10th November 2013. Its main performance weekend runs from 8th – 10th and features over 70 of the most visionary performers from around the world.

Bulbul 2013

presented by Sandpit Arts

The first presentations of the winning works of the second annual playwriting competition for new playwriting. This year, Sandpit Arts asked writers to respond to the theme 'crying over the ruins'. How they responded to this was entirely up to them. All we asked was that their work showed courage, a unique voice, a strong storytelling element and a cohesive narrative.

The entries were read by an independent panel of judges comprising Chris Taylor (director, New Writing South), Steven Brett (artistic director, the Nightingale) and Ahmed Masoud (director, Al Zaytouna). The winning works of Bulbul 2013 will be presented in a three-part programme:

Bitterenders by Hannah Khalil, directed by Guillaume Laroche
Honolulu by Stephen Keyworth, directed by Akkas Al-Ali
Casualties of War by Heather Dunmore, directed by Ahmed Masoud

With the incessant negative media coverage from the Middle East it is easy to become numbed and apathetic to the humanity and culture from the region and its diaspora. Bulbul is a great example of how the medium of theatre can be used to help change perceptions promote a better understanding. I hope it goes from strength to strength and I’m delighted to be involved.
