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

reveries and elegies - Volume TWO

Mary Armentrout Dance Theatre

reveries and elegies is a site-specific performance supported by the Nightingale that takes place across three locations and explores change, dislocation and the ungraspableness of the present.

Created and presented by the San Francisco-based Mary Armentrout Dance Theater (MADT), other iterations have already occurred in seven locations in the US and UK.

Directed by Mary Armentrout, an experimental choreographer, performance artist, and videographer, MADT is a collective of dancers, actors and sound and media artists that create hybrid works that unravel deceptively simple themes such as time, place, identity, and community.

The company installs work in both conventional and site-specific venues, and has presented at venues all over the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as across the US and the UK, Europe, and China.

Armentrout looks at the universe through cracked glasses that allow her to see relationships and physical forces in a way that throws logic out a speeding car's window - but lets in the dust, detritus, and leftover flavors of human nuttiness and fallibility. And she does it in a manner that's completely her own and entertaining if you just listen and look carefully enough.

Rita Felciano, The San Francisco Bay Guardian

Mary Armentrout is a performance artist of tremendous range. She utilizes body language as well as verbal acuity: both vocabularies are so carefully attuned and so delicately melded, she seems to be inventing a new kind of dance theatre before our eyes.

Cartoon De Salvo

A tech-savvy theatre company, fresh from the city, begin their latest show when the room is plunged into sudden darkness. Is it a blow-out - or something more mysterious? Join the "gloriously theatrical" (Wall Street Journal) Cartoon de Salvo on a journey into wonder - with restless ghosts, lost legends, some stuffed animals, and three characters who only begin to see when they can’t see at all.

One of the UK’s best loved rural touring companies, Cartoon de Salvo (Meat & Two Veg, The Chaingang Gang, Pub Rock) have made shows everywhere from your local allotment to Soho Theatre and the Kennedy Center Washington. Now they draw on fifteen years of taking theatre to village halls with this new show, promising their trademark mix of exceptional storytelling, gorgeous live music and swashbuckling adventure.

The Nightingale is happy to be working with the lovely Exeter Street Hall for the first time.

Thanks also to Applause who is supporting this performance.

Unflagging buoyancy and imagination, humour and intelligence are Cartoon de Salvo’s hallmarks… By the end of the evening my face was aching from smiling…you would be hard pushed to find more charm or expressive versatility anywhere

The Observer – Top Ten Shows of 2002

There’s only one word to describe the gloriously theatrical Cartoon de Salvo – and that’s delicious.

Fat Man

Move to Stand

Orpheus is doing stand-up for the gods.

A sharp new take on a classic Greek myth, this is a bitterly funny story of love, loss and eating your way out of grief. As the audience are transformed into the gods of legend, will Orpheus ever escape his past?

The award-winning Move to Stand are back with a black comedy that bridges the everyday with the celestial. Martin Bonger (NIE’s North North North, The Plasticine Men’s Keepers) delivers a gripping solo performance. There might even be a song.

First performed at Ovalhouse in July 2014. Created in association with North Wall Oxford, Live Theatre Newcastle and South Street, Reading.

Funny, immersive and surprisingly emotional

Andy Smith

Andy Smith and Fuel present a new piece for theatre telling a story from The North. The story of an ordinary life in extraordinary circumstances, or an extraordinary life in ordinary circumstances. The story of a life. The story of our lives. You can decide.

Andy Smith has been making solo works for theatre since 2004. During this time he has also collaborated as a co-director on the plays of Tim Crouch. In 2013 they also wrote and performed 'what happens to the hope at the end of the evening' together.

This performance is presented in association with the Marlborough Theatre.

Smith’s optimism is infectious

A Lyrical Dance Concert

Gillie Kleiman and Sara Lindström

A LYRICAL DANCE CONCERT is a party in a comedy double act in a cabaret show in a gig in an experimental dance performance.

Number-by-ridiculous-number, the lyrics of chart hits past and present are danced out – stretched,turned,lifted and thrown.With joyful irreverence and serious fun, the show insists that pop music belongs to us and can do what we want it to do. GET YOUR GLAD-RAGS ON, grab a drink and a pal, and giggle along with this mixed-up whirlwind of glamorous divas, guitar solos and gangster rappers...

Running time: 90 minutes

Choreography, original performance, design: Gillie Kleiman and Sara Lindström
Performers: Gillie Kleiman and Eleanor Sikorski

Created in co-production with Dance4, with additional support from Dance City, Northern Stage, MDT (Stockholm), and Konstnärsnämnden (Sweden). Show development and the 2014/15 tour is supported by Arts Council England. Additional tour support from Chisenhale Dance Space and Greenwich Dance.
