Laura Knight in the Open Air Saturday 22 September – Sunday 4 November Djanogly Art Gallery Admission free

Dame Laura Knight The Cornish Coast, 1914-17 Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales © Reproduced with the permission of the Estate of Dame Laura Knight DBE RA 2012 All Rights Reserved.

Educated at the Nottingham School of Art in the last decade of the nineteenth century, Laura Knight went on to become one of the most celebrated artists of her day. In 1968 she presented to the University of Nottingham her magnificent group portrait of the artist Lamorna Birch with his two daughters that now hangs in the Djanogly Gallery café at Lakeside Arts Centre.

Although she achieved wide popular acclaim in the 1920s and 30s for her ballet and circus subjects, her artistic roots lay in the tradition of rural plein air (open air) painting. It was in Staithes in North Yorkshire where she lived and worked after leaving Nottingham that, in her own words, she found herself and what she might do; here, among an established colony of artists, she painted the lives of the local fishing community.

New Perspectives on Knight Djanogly Art Gallery Admission free

It was, however, in Cornwall to where she and her husband moved in 1907 that Laura Knight achieved her full flowering as an artist of open-air subjects. Her painting of a group of children bathed in warm summer light on a Newlyn beach was a triumph when exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1909. Its success was followed by a string of increasingly ambitious canvases of subjects painted out of doors including Flying a Kite 1910.

After the First World War the Knights moved to London but maintained their links with Cornwall for many years to come. Increasingly from the 1930s onwards she also painted the landscape around Malvern where she and her husband joined the circle of friends and guests around the Theatre Director Barry Jackson. Her schooling in the plein air tradition was also applied to her paintings of other subjects included in this exhibition such as gypsies at Ascot and the home war effort. Laura Knight in the Open Air is a touring exhibition sponsored by Messum’s and curated by Penlee House Gallery & Museum, Penzance.

Wednesday 31 October 7 - 9pm A walkabout tour led by a relay team of six post-graduates researching at the University of Nottingham in a variety of disciplines who will bring their expertise to bear on one work in the Laura Knight exhibition.

Film Still from Saturday Night and Sunday Morning © Woodfall/BFI

Saturday Night and Sunday Morning The 'Authentic Moment' in British Photography Saturday 17 November 2012 - Sunday 10 February 2013 Djanogly Art Gallery Admission free

A sensational new exhibition inspired by Alan Sillitoe’s groundbreaking novel and the film adaptation directed by Karel Reisz. First published in 1958, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning helped frame its cultural moment. It charts a year in the life of Arthur Seaton, machinist in the Raleigh cycle factory, and young urban rebel. The novel appeared at the time of a spate of accounts of urban workingclass life by academics, playwrights, novelists and documentary filmmakers.

Many were concerned with the effect of a burgeoning consumer culture; the very idea of 'community' was counter-pointed by the emergence of a new working-class affluence and individualism. The end of post-war austerity also signaled the advent of a distinct youth culture; for the first time young people - the recently branded ‘teenagers’ - defined themselves outside of their parents’ culture, and had spending power, like never before, which they used on fashion, music and entertainment.

Taking seminal moments from the book and film, this exhibition explores the depiction of these social changes in contemporary photography, focusing in particular on working-class culture in the late 50s and 60s. It highlights the various approaches taken by a generation of photographers drawn to ‘the regions’ in an attempt to capture the authenticity of ‘ordinary lives’.

The exhibition features a selection of never-before-exhibited stills from Reisz’s iconic film, much of which was shot on location in Nottingham. So-called ‘Young Meteors’, John Bulmer and Graham Finlayson, worked for feted newspapers such as The Manchester Guardian and the latest print media magazines, while Roger Mayne and Shirley Baker initiated their own briefs generating new contexts for their photographic studies. Maurice Broomfield, an industrial photographer, diligently portrayed the nobility of factory workers for company reports. Their works are complemented by that of other

national photographers who have been subsequently overlooked, as well as an array of accomplished local amateurs. Drawing its material from Nottingham and the Midlands, as well as the Black Country and Manchester, the exhibition Saturday Night and Sunday Morning captures the essence of Sillitoe’s world and a country at the point of profound cultural change. Curated by Anna Douglas and Neil Walker

Photographers with mild insomnia and an eye for the unusual will have the unique opportunity to play their part in the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning exhibition by leaving the cosy confines of their beds to create an online photographic portrait of Nottingham at 4am. Using Flickr, the web space for sharing images, the 4am Project has been inspiring photographers from around the world, resulting in a global on-line community whose photos illustrate just how amazing our cities can be at night. Led by photographer Karen Strunks, the project comes to Nottingham at 4am on Sunday 25 November. She invites photographers to join her in the city centre to capture the strange and wonderful life on the streets while most of us are asleep.

Still: Dean Rogers For over 10 years, Dean Rogers has worked closely with some of our most talented film directors including Shane Meadows and Anton Corbijn. Unlike conventional 'film' photographers who shoot directly from the camera's perspective, Rogers strives instead to create his own compositions from within the pre-given structure of a film. Commonly catching actors while ‘off set’ and employing a cinematic approach to lighting, his photographs are full of their own narrative possibility and emotion. This exhibition complements the selection of film stills included in the Saturday Night and Sunday Morning exhibition.

Four years after a young and enlightened Henry VIII came to the throne, a wealthy Nottingham widow championed a cause which resonates in classrooms, sports fields, boardrooms and corridors of power even to this day With royal permission, her own donations of land and property, and the promise of support from the good people of Nottingham, Dame Agnes Mellers founded a school ‘evermore to endure’ for the teaching and instruction of boys in good manners and literature. This exhibition explores the relationship between Nottingham High School and its community, illustrated through the lives of the people who belong to it. Drawing on material from the school’s own archives and from collections at the University of Nottingham, the display shows how the early efforts to organise education in a small market town helped lay the foundations for a great city driven by learning.

The story touches on the lace industry, international sport, military service, public service and migration. It demonstrates the intelligence and commitment of the men and women who dedicated their lives to the education of local boys, and whose influence spanned lifetimes. It encompasses the climate of change that blew a Nottingham miner’s son through education to become the most controversial British writer of the twentieth century and a watch-maker’s son to become Chancellor of the Exchequer. The exhibition has been curated by Nottingham High School working in collaboration with Manuscripts and Special Collections at The University of Nottingham.

Parallel is a multi-dimensional tribute exploring the interaction between musical and visual improvisation as Harriott conceived it.

This is followed by Schubert’s Piano Trio No.2 in E flat, Op.100, one of the composer’s last pieces to be published before his early death. "Occasionally...a group appears that really stands out from the crowd, even takes your breath away. The Atos Trio from Berlin is such an ensemble." Adelaide Advertiser The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm

Their very first concert redefined the percussion ensemble and subsequently spawned a host of imitators. The group’s high energy performing style and intense, almost telepathic, ensemble skills have become a byword for innovative, genredefying programming.

Lucy Pankhurst won a British Composer's Award in 2011. Her Ticket 250654 commemorates the Titanic sinking by celebrating the courage of the musicians who played to calm the passengers as the disaster unfolded. Recent Nottingham graduate Elizabeth Charlesworth's tone poem takes its inspiration from Walt Whitman's ’Song of the Open Road’. Nigel Hess's Thames Journey is a wonderful musical description of the river's journey from source to sea, which leads neatly to Philip Sparke's Atlantic Odyssey. In this two-movement composition, Philip Sparke describes the elation and terror experienced during a trans-Atlantic yacht crossing.

Arlette Biloa Essomba

An Edinburgh festival favourite, the multi-award winning Bane is a story about a hired hand working on the streets of a fictional American city. Bruce Bane is the eponymous anti-hero who shoots first and asks questions later. With no props, mics or costume changes, the trilogy fuses physical theatre, gesture and mime, with a live guitar score, to create a filmic tapestry on stage.

(Cameroon) Dikun (La Douleur)

A dance double bill bringing together contemporary dance artists from two culturally diverse continents with a shared language. Joshua Beamish presents Allemande alongside Arlette Biloa Essomba's La Douleur. Arlette Biloa Essomba brings La Douleur a delicate and intense solo embodying a personal account of traumatic loss and the battle of moving on. Allemande, a physical deconstruction of a Bach Cello Suite and the accompanying social dances of the Baroque period, raises complex questions around the meaning of companionship. Pierced takes audiences on a journey through abstractions of love, as grounded in the myth of cupid's arrow, loss and pain, in order to obtain the all encompassing beauty of love. Choreographers are often drawn to J. S. Bach but the meeting of movement and music is not always as smart and intriguing as Allemande Michael Crabb, Toronto Star

Hand-Me-Down People and Porphyria A double-bill fresh from success at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe from The University of Nottingham’s multiple award-winning, student run theatre company

Hand-Me-Down People written by Adam H Wells Ignored and abandoned on a filthy shelf in the Twenty-First Century a group of figurines that have become outdated and fallen from favour with children await the inevitable day on which they are taken down and thrown away. All that they know of the world is what they have watched from their overlooked vantage point, and all that they have are the stories that children used to tell with them. But the stories have grown old. An allegorical and often humourous tale of the ways in which people deal with the onset of old age and the inevitability of mortality.

Porphyria written by C J Wilmann Every night Reginald Blake dreams of sex with his fantasy woman, a woman that is not his wife. One morning he awakes to find this fantasy come to life and eating breakfast in his kitchen. Porphyria is a black comedy from Nottingham University's award winning New Theatre, about one man's search for answers as everything he knows disintegrates.

And the Girls in their Sunday Dresses Adapted from the short story by Zakes Mda Directed by Princess Mhlongo Performed by Lesego Motsepe and Hlengiwe Lushaba Presented by the Market Theatre, Johannesburg And the Girls… is the story of two characters, The Woman and The Lady, who meet during a long wait in a queue to buy cheap rice. The Woman, an uncomplicated domestic worker, has brought her lunch with her; The Lady, a retired prostitute, who considers herself a sophisticated woman of the world, has brought her chair. Thus the two become interdependent, in a kind of female Waiting for Godot, where the act of waiting becomes far more important than its expected result. The women discover they have more in common than initially meets the eye. As they wait, they share their respective stories and heartbreaks, and resolve to stop waiting and seize control of their lives. Finely balanced dramatic and comic moments encourage us to consider how to respond to the human dilemmas facing us all. And the Girls … was a hit at the 2009 National Arts Festival in Grahamstown, South Africa. The roles of The Woman and The Lady are played by two of that country’s most acclaimed award-winning comedians. Its director, Princess Mhlongo, has been named as the Standard Bank Young Artist of the Year for Drama (2012)

Creative Choreographic workshop with Qudus Inception and Onikeku (Nigeria) My Exile is in My Head Suitable for trained dancers An opportunity to work with Qudus Onikeku in advance of his award-winning solo performance. Nigerian by birth, Qudus lives and works in exile in France. His work combines traces of traditional Nigerian dances which draw on his Yoruba culture, together wth hip hop, Tai Chi, Capoeira, acrobatics and contemporary vocabularies. He has received several awards for the recognition of his dynamic input to the dance world, being named Dancer of the Year in The FUTURE AWARDS 2009, and most recently Laureate of the solo prize for Danse l’Afrique danse 2010 in Bamako with his solo piece My Exile is in my Head to be performed at Lakeside on 11 October.

Inception Choreographed and performed by Sonia Radebe Design by Thabo Sebatlelo Music by Nhlanhla Mahlangu Lighting design by Suzette le Seuer Inception, originally performed in 2011, is a complex, textured dance solo, that has already evolved into a classic. It’s an intensely physical and psychological journey into the psyche of a female artist. As the brooding sound of the Taj Mahal Travellers’ music reverberates around the darkened auditorium, a presence emerges from the wings, lit by its headgear. The figure turns out to be a woman, whose gazelle-like movement pulls her into a succinctly layered universe of experience. Embellished by Suzette le Seuer’s lighting and challenged by a techno whale song score by Nhlanhla Mahlangu, this gloriously graceful being surfs reality and imagination.

My Exile is in My Head Choreographed and performed by Qudus Onikeku (Nigeria) Music by Charles Amblard Video by Isaak Lartey Inspired by Wole Soyinka’s prison notes – The Man Died – Nigerian dancer and acrobat Qudus Onikeku explores the theme of cultural identity and forms of exile, and the contradiction between the cerebral notion of home and the physical reality of the place one returns to. More than a word, exile is a condition.

Mother to Mother Original novel written by Sindiwe Magona Adapted for the stage by Sindiwe Magona, Janice Honeyman and Thembi Mtshali-Jones Directed by Janice Honeyman Performed by Thembi Mtshali-Jones American Fullbright scholar Amy Biehl is killed in the Gugulethu township of Cape Town: it’s a senseless murder, carried out by four youths. The mother of one of them tries to make sense of it all by recounting events in an imaginary conversation with Amy’s mother. It’s a real ‘heart to heart’ communication of personal testimony in an imaginary response to this real event. It was an ordinary day in Gugulethu. But one unforgiving moment in that ordinary day had repercussions beyond the imaginable. And we hear of the Mother’s guilt because of the part she played, knowing that another mother is now ‘without, because of me’. This tour-de-force monologue is powerful and profoundly moving theatre delivered with dignity, sensitivity and humour by South African actress Thembi Mtshali-Jones. The production draws upon the skills of three powerhouse women of the arts in South Africa. Music interwoven with the text heightens the mood as the tragedy unfolds, and the use of the Xhosa indigenous language in parallel with English lends a gritty authenticity.

A note from Writer & Director Stephen Lowe Maurice Roëves

Just a Gigolo Written & directed by Stephen Lowe Produced by Vanessa Rawlings-Jackson, Assembly and Lakeside Arts Centre Maurice, famed for his leading roles in theatre, TV and film including "Tutti Frutti" and " The Last of the Mohicans", stars as Angelo Ravagli, the real Lady Chatterley's Lover. In this smart new comedy by award winning writer, Stephen Lowe, Ravagli reveals the hidden truths behind the banned D H Lawrence paintings and his affair with Frieda Lawrence as he tries to sell the paintings one by one to get his ticket home.

A Taste of Italy

During the run of Just a Gigolo the Pavilion Cafe will be serving an Italian inspired menu. for just £8.95 you can enjoy a glass of Italian wine and a main course meal. Book through the Box Office when booking tickets for the show. Places are limited so book early!

After writing EMPTY BED BLUES on Lawrence's confrontation with Frieda about her affair with Angelo Ravagli I became fascinated with the character of this "forgotten man" whom Frieda lived with for almost twice as long as she had with the legendary writer. He was in a way Sancho Panza to Lawrence's Quixote - no two men could be more different. And there was rich irony that the man who was the "inspiration" for Lady Chatterley's Lover would one day end up owning the book. Maurice and I had already travelled together to D H Lawrence’s ranch in Taos, so when the idea came to me to write Just a Gigolo, the perfect casting came at the same moment.

Mother Courage And Her Children

"What a joy and a rarity... gives a true sense of love's journey through the years, a charming work." **** Broadway Baby

Translated by Lee Hall Directed by Tom Neill

"an incredibly touching piece of physical theatre **** Fringe Review www.agnesandwalter.co.uk

"They’re waging war for Almighty God and in the name of everything that’s good and lovely, but look closer, they ain’t so silly" Mother Courage Two ideologies collide in a conflict that stretches across a continent and threatens the balance of world power. In its midst, one woman, her three children by her side, sees an opportunity to survive, a way to profit from the slaughter by selling goods to both sides. And the time is about to come when, in her quest for material gain, she must make the ultimate sacrifice. Regarded by many as one of the greatest anti-war plays of all time, Mother Courage And Her Children asks fundamental questions about the effects our beliefs have on the world, and the role of ideology in society and world affairs. Lee Hall’s (The Pitmen Painters, War Horse screenplay) brilliant translation of Brecht’s masterpiece is accessible, bang up to date and full of dark comedy.

"Professional, exciting, historical political theatre, ideal for the Brecht lover" What’s On Stage (on The Caucasian Chalk Circle)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare directed by Peter Doran

Director – Peter Glanville Music composed by – James Hesford Designer – Simon Plumridge Puppet designer & maker – Jan Zalud Peter Doran directs an outstanding cast of twelve - young lovers, warring fairies and mischievous Mechanicals – who meet in a moonlit forest in this magical adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic comedy. Set on the home front during the Second World War, this new production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells of a very British way of life, of an old class structure weakened by the destructiveness of war. Yet despite the conflict there is an underlying feeling of adventure - romance is in the air, and people live life for the moment, not knowing what tomorrow may hold. In these times our dreams are more vivid, the desire to love and be loved greater, and the longing for a better world immense. An endlessly inventive production laced with wicked wit, genuine enchantment, and a symbolic escape from reality. …Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream… Edgar Allen Poe Supported by the Welsh Government and the Arts Council of Wales through the National Performing Arts Touring scheme.

LITTLE BOYS Written by Mike Kenny Directed by Matt Aston Music by Julian Butler

Two little boys had two little toys, each had a wooden horse. They spent long summer days playing as all children do. Warriors one minute, mishaps and broken toys the next. One thing was for certain, from happy-go-lucky boys to brave young men, their friendship would last forever. Inspired by the song made famous by Rolf Harris, Olivier Award-winning writer Mike Kenny takes the lyrics to create a heart-warming new tale of life-long camaraderie and friendship.
