What's On in and around Brighton & Hove

Monday 1 May 2016 - The Fair Shop
Rags Revival Clothes Swapping Boutique @ Fair! £5 entry bring up to 10 items of GOOD QUALITY PRELOVED women's clothing or accessories. How does it work? *Please note we don't accept underwear/ tights/ swimwear/ anything that is damaged or worn to within an inch of it's life. Please only bring things you would be proud to give to a friend. Clothes Swapping Boutique Fear not, here at Rags Revival events you won't need your crash helmet and knee pads to fend people off from the best stuff! It works on a free flow basis and as different people come through the event the stock changes constantly! You can bring up to 10 items - Clothes, Shoes, Hats, Bags, Jewelry (We do ask that you bring quality secondhand items - e.g. not those holey short shorts you have been wearing to the gym or the £2 tank you brought last year) The clothes DO NOT have to be vintage but of course would love them! I have mirrors and a changing screen to see how your new fabulous finds looks on you. For some events children's clothes are also included. If this is the case then you can bring children's clothing instead of women's or a mixture of the two. There is no age cap and all tokens cross over so no matter what you bring you can spend them on anything. Each item is worth one token - Simple! When you arrive with your items you can either 1. Keep your clothes, look through the rails and make sure there are enough items that you want to swish/swap, before parting with those items that have been collecting dust at the back of your wardrobe. Then when you are ready you can literally swap each item for another! Also, this way you can keep some of your clothes you brought if you aren't quite ready to part with them yet and just swish a couple of pieces! 2. Hand in your items straight away and receive tokens and I will put your items straight out. These tokens you can spend to get any item already out or that comes later in the event. If you have any tokens left, keep them! Come to the next event and spend them there! P.S - Don't feel bad that the clothes aren't going to charity because anything that doesn't swish for a few events I give to chairty :-) http://swishing.wix.com/rags-revival

Tuesday 9 May 2016 - Lighthouse
Lighthouse presents Progress Bar, a series of events giving insight into the creative practice of contemporary culture's most exciting names. From vanguard filmmakers and musicians to trending artists and activists, Progress Bar is our regular, ear-to-the-ground evening of new art, new music and, hopefully, new friends. This special edition of Progress Bar, presented in partnership with Fabrica Film Forum and Brighton Film School, takes inspiration from the new immersive video installation The Sprawl (Propaganda About Propaganda) by award-winning artists and filmmakers Metahaven, in which they argue that the internet has become a weapon of mass destruction. Showing a series of short films by Metahaven’s contemporaries, Progress Bar: Film Forum is an opportunity to watch and discuss works by a group of cutting-edge filmmakers and artists creating videos that respond to and comment on the internet. Often drawing subject matter and content from digital culture, including memes, gaming and social media, these works examine contemporary culture and world events as presented on our screens. TALKS David Blandy London and Brighton-based artist David Blandy works with the image in the digital world, from the YouTube tutorial and music videos, to television series, anime and the narrative sections of computer games; highlighting our relationship with popular culture and investigating what makes us who we are. SCREENINGS 1014 In 1014, Pattison takes us on a fan-video style guided tour of the hotel room in which Edward Snowden stayed after he fled from the US to Hong Kong. It was here that Snowden revealed his identity as the source of the NSA surveillance leaks to The Guardian, as captured in the documentary CitizenFour. Because We Are Visual Emerging documentary filmmakers Olivia Rochelle and Gerard-Jan Claes live and work in Brussels. Because We Are Visual examines the world of public video journals. Described by Dazed as “an incredibly poetic and profound film,” the footage, comprised entirely of clips found on YouTube – including a man becoming overwhelmed by the beauty of a double rainbow, a girl choosing to reveal her body in a public space, and a boy secretly filming himself on the toilet – captures the loneliness and the experience of the body within this virtual space. The Sprawl (Propaganda About Propaganda) is commissioned by Lighthouse and Brighton Festival, and being exhibited at Lighthouse as part of the festival from 7-29 May 2016. There will be an opportunity to view it during this event.

“Fist-pumping euphoria… one of the highlights of Latitude’s sun-stroked 10th anniversary festival… crackles with a rare and unexpected life.” The Stage 2001. Raves. Revision. Re-election. Nadia is swept up in a hot summer’s night of love that promises endless possibilities. Drinking, dancing, hope, ambition, lust, greed… and decisions that determine the rest of her life. Underscored by a live mix of old school UK Garage, award-winning writer Sabrina Mahfouz explores the legacy of a euphoric summer before 9/11, when New Labour promised glorious futures for young people, and a new genre of music sprang up in the nightclubs of London to capture hearts and minds. 2015. Re-wind. “The lifeblood of the UK’s theatre ecosystem” (The Guardian), touring company Paines Plough sold out their run of Every Brilliant Thing here in Oct 2015, and With A Little Bit of Luck is likely to sell out just as fast too.

In the 1970s, when working at Island Records, television composer Michael Burdett was asked to throw out some tapes. One of them caught his eye. It was over 20 years later before Michael played the tape, and was astonished to hear an unknown version of one of Nick Drake’s greatest works. Michael decided to share this recording in an extraordinary way, offering people across Britain the chance to hear the recording in exchange for photographing them. Humorous and poignant, Strange Face celebrates life, coincidences and the legacy of singer-songwriter Nick Drake. This Edinburgh award-winning show is perfect for music and photography fans, and anyone who likes a life-affirming tale. If you enjoyed The Measure of All Things (Brighton Festival 2015) you’ll love this.

Have you dreamed of working without a boss? Of living without a landlord? Of having a media system owned and run by us, not by billionaires and corporations? Of having an energy system which is powered by renewables and owned and run for all of us? There are co-operative alternatives to the capitalist and competitive system we live within. This day of workshops – organised by Mutual Aid in Sussex and Free University Brighton – gives an introduction to some of those co-operative alternatives and gives you a chance to meet many of the people who are making them happen. It's also an opportunity for people in co-operatives and social enterprises in the city to come together to get to know each other more and to see how they can help each other Whether you're completely new to co-operatives and social enterprises, or have years of experience, there will be something for you

After causing a storm at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, attracting more than 3,000 people, Javier Jarquin AKA Card Ninja now brings his arresting mix of ninja skills, comedy and card-trickery to a venue near you from April 2016! The Card Ninja possesses extraordinary skills, which are much more than just sleight of hand! Audiences marvel at Card Ninja’s mastery of the humble playing card, even using them as weapons in a eye-widening display of precision, speed, and power. Card Ninja is a PG rated, one-man show with up-beat humour, impressive stunts and smooth audience interaction. His genius lies in establishing himself as a mild-mannered protagonist. Harnessing the crowd’s empathy as he weaves them through an extraordinary stunt-filled journey from mild mannered card player to silent assassin. Heralded by the press, Card Ninja was called ‘seriously talented’ by The Stage and The Evening Standard had to admit that he ‘excelled’ in ninja standard card-trickery. • Javier is from New Zealand • 2014 saw Javier/Card Ninja become the face of Pepsi Max Unbelievable Series (over 1,000,000 views) – www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-JXtGuwBII and record of his first tutorial DVD plus an appearance on the Guinness World Records show on Chinese television – with a record audience of 211million. • Javier is half Chinese, half Nicaraguan • When Javier isn’t throwing cards, he’s a regular at major comedy clubs and festivals as a stand up, host and compere.

“Terrific work. Funny and true and a little bit heart-breaking.” ???? Lyn Gardner, The Guardian It’s 1972. An era of possibility, polyester and pubic hair. Ziggy Stardust is on Top of the Pops, Penny is writing an essay on Lady Chatterley’s Lover and Christine is watching Deepthroat. Brian is confused. The Wardrobe Ensemble tell the story of the class of ‘72 with a funk guitarist in ‘loons, and some spacehoppers. Was it easier back then? Where did we go wrong? Come with us for a brisk romp through the ins and outs of those excellently awkward first sexual encounters.

Brighton City Airport were also very happy with the operation and festival organisers couldn't have been more pleased with the facilities as it lent itself well to the event. Whilst the stages featured huge screens, phenomenal light shows and a huge PA system, the concerns of residents over noise were very well managed.

Brighton City Airport’s Main Terminal will be the site for locals to get themselves booked in for 2016, Wednesday to Saturday week of on sale, with the bonus of no booking fees on cash only purchases.

After becoming one of the biggest hits of the 2015-16 International Fringe season, Echoes is delighted to& appear at the Rialto Theatre for its six-night run at the Brighton Fringe. The show has been one of the most decorated shows on this year’s circuit, winning many major awards, notably at the world’s two largest fringes – Edinburgh and Adelaide. In fact, at Adelaide Echoes became one of the most decorated shows in the Festival's history, winning 5 major awards: including gongs from the Critics' Circle and the BankSA Pick of the Fringe… and most prestigious of all, it won the coveted Best Theatre prize. It has also been a critical success garnering over 25 four and five star reviews. Leading critics from The Australian, The Guardian, The Times, The Scotsman, the Sunday Mail, and The Sunday Times have praised the show – citing the bold, innovative script; the subtle staging; and the superb performances of Felicity Houlbrooke and Filipa Braganca. Premiering at the Gilded Balloon in August 2015, the play transferred not just off-London’s West End but also off-Broadway in New York. In fact, Echoes will be concluding its 3-week Off-Broadway run just two nights before appearing at the Rialto Theatre. Come and see it - this show is truly 'direct from New York!' Dealing with the radicalization of young British Muslims, the show promises to be particularly relevant to Brighton audiences – as recently, three of the town’s sons have been killed fighting for Jihad in Syria. The show is guaranteed to be thought-provoking, as playwright Henry Naylor draws surprising parallels between the Jhadis of today and the early Victorian pioneers. Presented as two intercut monologues, the drama tells the parallel stories of two women born 175 years apart. One is a Victorian pioneer woman – the other an Islamist schoolgirl. The former wants to build an Empire; the latter a Caliphate. We see both travel to the East, to impose their ideals upon unwilling peoples …and both see their ideals drowned in seas of blood. Henry Naylor has suddenly started writing hard-hitting drama, after having previously been a specialist comedian. He was previously best-known for his comedy work with Andy Parsons, with whom he presented nine series of Parsons and Naylor’s Pull-Out Sections on Radio 2. He’s also been a prolific satirist for TV having been the lead writer on Spitting Image,and having written for Alistair MacGowan, Rory Bremner, Dead Ringers, among others. “NAYLOR AND TWO BEAUTIFULLY NUANCED PERFORMANCES GIVE EQUAL EMOTIONAL WEIGHT TO TWO DISPARATE VICTIMS OF RELIGIOUS COLONIALISM IN THIS HUGELY IMPRESSIVE PLAY” - The Guardian “NOT ONLY DOES HE (NAYLOR) MAKE THESE JOURNEYS RICH IN DETAIL, HE LEAVENS HIS POINTEDNESS WITH IMPRESSIVE QUANTITIES OF WIT. CRUCIALLY, THE PERFORMANCES ARE RESTRAINED, COMMITTED, AFFECTINGLY INTIMATE” - The Times “CUTTING EDGE RELEVANCE…HENRY NAYLOR WRITES WITH CLARITY AND BLACK HUMOUR IN TERRIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES, MAKING THE POINT THAT THE FOUNDATION OF WESTERN SOCIETY IS ITSELF STEEPED IN THE PATRIARCHAL BARBARISM WE NOW RIGHTLY DECRY” The Scotsman AWARDS FOR ECHOES Spirit Of The Fringe Award – Edinburgh 2015 BankSA Best Theatre Award - Adelaide Fringe 2016 Best Theatre Winner - Adelaide Fringe Weekly Awards 2016 Banksa Pick Of The Fringe Winner - Adelaide Fringe Weekly Awards 2016 Adelaide Critics Circle Choice Award - Adelaide Fringe Weekly Awards 2016 Adelaide Critics’ Circle High Commendation, Adelaide 2016 Nominee: Pick of the Fringe, Adelaide 2016 REVIEWS FOR ECHOES Adelaide Theatre Guide ?????
