A Private View

written by Vaclav Havel, presented by Oscillate Wildly Productions

Invited by friends Michael and Vera to admire their newly refurbished flat, the mild mannered writer Ferdinand does his best to enthuse over such things as their new Gothic Madonna and American food. As Michael and Vera happily express the the perfection of their marriage, their tone gradually develops into a personal attack on Ferdinand, his home, his wife and his work as a writer. Just as the abuse builds to a climax, Ferdinand turns to leave, only to find Michael and Vera begging him to stay...

Oscillate Wildly Productions is a brand new theatre company based in Brighton/Hove. The idea behind forming the company was to give greater opportunity to those who have either studied in theatre and who have found themselves working in other areas during the day, or those who have a real passion for all aspects of the theatre. It is a chance to really get involved with developing and creating all types of theatrical experiences. When Casper Jones first put an advert in the papers, perhaps he shouldn't have been surprised at the number of people who contacted him who wanted to be involved with all areas of running the initial show; through giving up their spare time to help in any way they could. This is the kind of ethos that really encouraged Casper to pursue this idea.

A short performance route of work by David Waring, Theo Clinkard and Gillie Kleiman

hustler #4.5' by David Waring
hustler #4.5' is a piece that lasts for 4.5mins, musically accompanied by a track of your choice, in a toilet cubicle. Leave your worries behind you, spend some pennies and queue for a unique one to one performance presentation by choreographer/performer David Waring. For you alone.

Hell Bent by Theo Clinkard
Hell Bent is a curious 'one on two' installation work that has audiences laughing nervously, quietly enraged and gasping in disbelief. Employing an illusion that dates back to 1584, Hell Bent, situates you right in the throbbing heart of the action, and asks you to spend six heightened minutes considering the subjectivity of good and evil. This disconcerting spectacle is conjoured only a handful of times each night and simply has to be seen to be believed.

The Nightingale Democratic Dance Team by Gillie Kleiman
You are invited to join The Nightingale Democratic Dance Team. The NDDT is assembled through its only action: the dramatic movement of writing to Members of Parliament. This is a kind of dance: a choreography that exercises democratic muscle, a delicate and powerful jig whose aim is to re-route powers with new motions. Let’s dance.

Counting To One Hundred and One Flute Note

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion

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. Counting To One Hundred and One Flute Note continue their 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. They have given nearly 300 performances in 29 countries.

Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion are supported by Kaaitheater Brussels, PACT Zollverein Essen, Sadler's Wells Theatre London and BIT Teatergarasjen Bergen.

Counting To One Hundred and One Flute Note were supported by Arts Council England and co-produced by Kaaitheater Brussels.

..a gestural panorama of blatant joy

Süddeutsche Zeitung, Munich on Counting To One Hundred

...a challenging meditation on form and memory, but performed with such a droll tension that it's also a deliciously entertaining kind of dance theatre.

Judith Mackrell, The Guardian

It is as if Burrows and Fargion have fashioned a way of performing that is a metaphor for living with more freedom within the conflicted confines of our daily lives.

Nicholas Minns, writing about dance.com

Sid Lester’s Christmas Special

Sue MacLaine and Friends

Have yourself a merry little Christmas and the heart of your cockles warmed at Sid Lester's evening of Christmas entertainment.

There will be ladies dancing, pipers piping, no swans but definitely, as Sid revives the act that took him to the 1975 quarter-final of New Faces, birds a-calling. The Winter Wonderland troupe will enthrall with a slapstick evening of comfort and joy singing and dances of festive flinging...the following of yonder stars and a wish for snow may also join the party.

LE BOURGEOIS GENTILHOMME

by Moliere, presented by The Academy of Creative Training, directed by Frank McCabe

Celebrity wannabes, debt crippled aristos, money grabbing fashion poseurs, corruption, sexual intrigue, class War... Sound familiar? Could this be England 2012?

No! Welcome to Paris in the 17th century – a world parallel to our own. See for yourself in this elegant-swellegant jaunt, as our hapless hero – Monsieur Jourdain – gets taken for a ride by a succession of swindlers. He is the equivalent of the lottery jackpot winner who can buy everything he wants, except the nobility he craves. He can buy a gold-plated bath, but he ain’t got class! Monsieur Jourdain – a classic TOWIE geezer who longs to be Made In Chelsea.
