Sandy Laing Exhibition @ Highgate Gallery
Nov 16 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Sandy Laing    4-17 November 2022

Sandy Laing, painting graduate of the Royal College of Art in 1975, is exhibiting in his first European show in over 42 years, featuring drawings, collages and paintings from the full length of his career.

Sandy Laing’s individual approach to painting is a legacy absorbed by inspirational teaching he received in his early teens.  He taught art following a RCA Masters in painting and his own creative output was political, humorous, and highly subjective.  By combining paint, pen, ink, and printers’ blocks with assemblages of carefully selected found objects his work intrigues, rich in landscape and argument.

Sandy Laing will be on show at the Highgate Gallery on:

Wednesdays to Fridays 13:00-17:00,

Saturdays 11:00-16:00

Sundays 11:00-17:00,

Jazz in the House 2022: Still Waters @ Lauderdale House
Nov 17 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Still Waters was born out a long association and friendship going back 40 years between Henry Lowther and Britain’s premiere bassist Dave Green – the band is now one of the most accomplished and creative bands in the country.

Although a classic quintet of two front line and rhythm, Still Waters plays radical and original music, ranging from gentle, quietly pastoral and melodic music, reflecting the band’s name, through to dynamic, free improvisation. The main thing to say about it is that it is indeed a band – not just a collection of individual musicians; in other words the whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. The level of creativity, adventure and interplay on gigs never ceases to astonish audiences; no two gigs are ever the same.

Featuring Henry Lowther (trumpet), Dave Green (bass), Paul Clarvis (drums) and Pete Hurt (saxophone), Still Waters is truly an unmissable experience.

“Lowther and Hurt’s compositions are subtly effective and the players took them as inspiration for some small miracles” A review by Jon Turney for the Bristol Jazz Log.

The Bloody Chamber @ Jacksons Lane
Nov 18 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

What are little girls made of?

They are made of the forest floor, the blood of the moon cycle, the fluttering of wings and the turning of keys. They are made of sweat, howling notes and desire. They are made of night scented stock – heady and sweet, the lily and the rose, the knife and the rope.

They are made of all the tales our Mothers told us.

And all the ones they didn’t dare.

Using circus as a physical vocabulary, the award-winning Proteus will translate the fever dream style of Angela Carter’s macabre fairy tales to the stage. The Bloody Chamber is a heady, erotic, and surprisingly funny re-phrasing of some of the most famous folk and fairy tales in Western culture.

At a moment when women and men across the country confront the double standards of safety, sex, and the fears of what goes bump in the night, Carter’s incendiary caustic take on fairy stories as cautionary tales could not be a more formidable challenge to the status quo.

Directed by Miriam Clark and performed by Garden Suburb Theatre at the ‘Upstairs At The Gatehouse’ theatre in Highgate from 24th – 27th November, ‘Calendar Girls’ (the play not the musical) by Tim Firth is both a comedy and a moving portrait of true friendship amongst individuals who understand that helping those in need can be life fulfilling.  Based on the true story of eleven Women’s Institute members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukaemia Research Fund, Calendar Girls originally opened at the Chichester Festival Theatre and has since become the
fastest-selling play in British theatre history. Tickets are priced at £14 and £16 and are available via www.upstairsatthegatehouse.com or by calling the Box Office on 020 8340 3488.

Delicate @ Jacksons Lane
Nov 25 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Four different bodies collide. A show about how things need to fall apart before they can fall into place.

Their lives are different, but one thing unites them: there’re frustrated with their bodies changing, ageing, breaking, no longer obeying. They climb, hang, balance, slide, collapse, hold and hug. They examine marks life has left on their bodies. Film and audio fragments mirror these marks in the wounds inflicted on our planet. These characters are fighting the grind of what’s expected. And you might feel inspired to do the same.

Delicate is BSL interpreted, audio described and captioned. Delicate is presented by Extraordinary Bodies and co-produced with Figurteatret i Nordland and Theatre Royal Plymouth.
