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.

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.

Charge Group

with The Plummets (ex-Charlottefield)

Announcing CHARGE GROUP - the Australian band that has proven it’s entirely possible to evoke the chaotic beauty of early Velvets, the kinetic power of Battles and the heady symphonic majesty of Sigur Ros all at once. For the very first time on UK soil, Sydney's cinematic art-rockers are excited to be sharing their bold sonic adventuring with Brightoners as part of their first European tour in over 3 years.

Formed from the ashes of Purplene in 2007, Charge Group create music that is at once dynamic, atmospheric, powerful, scorchingly loud, abnormally quiet and increasingly as difficult to categorise as Werner Herzog. Don't miss one of Australia's most innovative, underrated and exciting underground bands in this special appearance at the beautiful Nightingale Theatre. Extremely limited capacity, so don't be late!

Charge Group's triumph is their ability to marry moments of unbridled beauty with complete sonic chaos at a level scarcely matched in this country.

Rules & Regs

Ira Brand, FrenchMottershead, Matthew Morris

R&R took three artists, Ira Brand, FrenchMottershead, and Matthew Morris to Yokohama for a month and challenged them to each make a new performance in response to a set of rules...

The rules were designed, with these artists in mind, to provide a creative nudge to try new things. Back in Brighton, they present the performances they created in Japan... the pieces cover Foley artists, airplane crashes and a dance decided by the flip of a coin. The Rules:
- Attack!
- Find the stage.
- Balance.
- You also are here.

Rules and Regs aims to support the development of the artists and to offer the audience a peek behind the curtain of the creative process... we encourage and invite both the artists and the audience to try something new.

The artists are writing about their experiences in Japan

Doctor Faustus

The Barefoot Players

Feverishly turning the pages of books in the pursuit of infinite knowledge, Faustus makes a deal with the devil, exchanging his immortal soul for twenty-four years of magic. Christopher Marlowe’s iconic tragedy of demons, darkness and desire is brought to life in The Barefoot Players’ new production. The Faustian legend crawls from the page into vivid life in a provocative, entertaining rendition, which explores magic as a metaphor for the fulfilment of fantasies and the terror of emptiness.

The Barefoot Players are a Sussex-based company. Their projects include vibrant renditions of classic plays, new writing and devised theatre, all brought to life with music, flamboyant costumes and our trademark energetic physicality. They have recently taken part in the 2012 Brighton Fringe Festival, with a well-reviewed production of Ben Jonson's The Alchemist; and previously in 2011 with a sell-out production of Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest. They are also regulars at the Lindfield Arts Festival. Previous work at The Nightingale includes Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale and Julius Caesar. Doctor Faustus is directed by Eleanor Conlon for The Barefoot Players.

The Barefoot Players put a huge amount of effort into their work, and leave no stone unturned when it comes to detail.

The New Current

Effortless...fantastically creative...enjoyable and engaging. ****
