What a Wonderful World

As artists we see many things in this wonderful world that are often missed. The shapes, colours and the beauty of nature, the pervading tone and mood that surrounds us.

We try to capture empathy and engage with our viewers to increase the appreciation of their visual experience.

This exhibition aims to draw you into ‘This Wonderful World’.

I Ain’t Afraid of No Ghost
Feb 21 @ 7:30 pm

Tickets now available at the Foxlowe and online as usual.

Do you believe in ghosts?   Imagine an ordinary home with extraordinary goings-on.

Over 30 years ago, director and performer Gareth Nicholl’s family home was haunted by a rather playful poltergeist.  Cupboard doors would open, Madonna records would spring into life in the wee small hours:  but the final straw came when the family pack of Kit Kats disappeared.

Using family heirlooms, icomic 80s toys, interviews, photographs and real-life home videos ion stage, Gareth sets out to get to the bottom of this paranormal mystery:  what was really going on?

A funny and nostalgic trip back to the 80s in a theatre show for adults and older children about the family home and its playful poltergeist.  It delves into the childhood of Gareth, the director and one of the performers, and draws you into a fascinating paranormal mystery set in a very recognisable suburban world.

”A quirky, creative performance that encourages your own overactive imagination, reconnects you with some sounds, sights and flavours of the past, and provides lots of laughs along with a few spooky surprises!”

Formed in 2005 by co-Directors Gareth Nicholls and Philip Holyman, West-Midlands based Little Earthquake Theatre Company http://little-earthquake.com/projects  “exists to create events that will surprise, entertain, inspire and intrigue. The stories we tell invite audiences to scupper their expectations and escape the ordinary.”

When game tracker, Cory Lambert (Jeremy Renner) discovers a body in the wilderness of the Wild River Indian Reservation, the FBI sends out rookie agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) to investigate. Enlisting the taciturn Lambert to assist with her investigation, Agent Banner must contend with a haunted past and a community beset by drugs, violence and the elements in their search for a predator. Sicario and Hell or High Water writer, Taylor Sheridan, moves into the director’s chair to create an acclaimed, riveting thriller set at the fringes of the American West in the wintry vastness of Wyoming.

Two Palestinian Films
Feb 27 @ 7:45 pm

LEEK PALESTINE LINK GROUP PRESENTS

This Is Palestine is a new documentary that follows Riverdance founder John McColgan on a journey through Gaza and the West Bank. The film features powerful interviews with people who have lost their homes, land or family members as a result of the ongoing conflict, as well as inspiring footage of the Israeli and Palestinian activists working together for a just peace.

The film marks the 50th anniversary of the military occupation of the West Bank and the tenth anniversary of the blockade of Gaza, the film shows the urgent need for a renewed effort to bring a lasting peace to all the people of this region.

 

Around the Wall: Bend it like Bethlehem is a journey through women’s football in the West Bank.  Whether playing matches against league teams or informal kick-arounds on the rock-strewn pitches of hill-top villages of South Hebron, football is the common language as cultural barriers are crossed and new friendships established.

This short documentary film follows a group of woman footballers from the UK and Germany on the football trip of a lifetime to Palestine.

The film’s poignant testimonies highlight cultural issues surrounding local women’s participation in sport as well as the struggle to remain steadfast on their homelands.

 

The bar will be open from 7.00pm

Films start at 7.45pm

All are welcome.   Free Entry.

Keith James in concert with …….The Songs of Leonard Cohen
Feb 28 @ 7:30 pm

These remarkable songs – stripped back, desolate, naked and sensual

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each line.

The chilling announcement of Leonard’s passing marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. A Man of Grace. Our World misses him very much!

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving close to 400 concerts to well over 100,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career in music. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and Andalucia, Spain

Included in the concert are Cohen’s well known songs: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne and Hallelujah alongside his rarer and profound writing such as Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are Keith’s dramatic and absorbing performances based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca – Cohen’s greatest influence.
Keith has also transcribed into song one of Leonard’s poems from his collection ‘Book of longing’

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent

‘Good work! Glad you are keeping Leonard’s songs alive’ Sylvie Simmons, Biographer – The Life of Leonard Cohen

‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times
‘an elegant and beautifully crafted reinterpretation of a great Artist’s words’ BBC Radio Scotland

‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’ The Guardian

‘All the tears of time are shed in a few brief lines’ Times Literary Supplement

‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’ Acoustic Magazine

Gemma Ray / Thomas Truax Double Headline Show!!!!
Mar 1 @ 7:30 pm

GEMMA RAY / THOMAS TRUAX
Double Headline Show!***GEMMA RAY***“Ray is one inspired music machine” -MOJOBritish pop music has plenty of retro-soul and R&B acts, but the recordings of singer/songwriter Gemma Ray reveal a more complex and restless artistic nature than most. Reaching back to pre-Beatles rock for inspiration — but tossing in a jumble of influences including the torch songs of Billie Holiday, film scores, flamenco, and more — Ray has sculpted a sound that is familiar and warm, but also appealingly off-kilter and full of noir-ish touches.

The Berlin-Based Essex native is about to release her eighth album on the indie label Bronzerat.

PSYCHOGEOLOGY represents Ray’s most ambitious release to date, its intricate arrangements and textures – including choral and string arrangements – the result of almost a year’s labour determinedly hewn from rare periods of time available between tours. The album, she says, is “an ode to the majesty of landscape, the enormity of nature and time, and the inevitability of every human life eventually forming a minuscule part of further landscapes.”

“Absolutely staggering” -Guy Gurney (6Music)

“Not to be missed!” -Jimmy Page

***THOMAS TRUAX***

Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist’s brain for weird gadgets, American singer Thomas Truax is a true one-off.

UNCUT magazine says “Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics” while Splendid magazine called him “one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you’ve never heard of…an exceptional talent.”
His evolving “band” of self-made sound sculptures include a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called ‘Mother Superior’ and a souped up Gramophone called ‘The Hornicator’,  but he never leaves his trusty guitar out of the equation too long.
Thomas crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons ‘Why Dogs Howl at The Moon’. His nine studio LPs include highly-rated covers album ‘Songs From The Films Of David Lynch’.  Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, The Dresden Dolls, Bob Log III and the late author Terry Pratchett.

His latest album ‘All that Heaven Allows’  has been garnering national airplay on BBC6 and extremely positive reviews.

“He still knows how to pull together albums of real beauty…his duet with Gemma Ray is worth the admission price alone.”  -Buzz Magazine

“His gigs are extraordinary, fizzing with showmanship.” -Q

“When he performs, it is a spectacle – the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal.”  -The Guardian
