LUNCHTIME CONCERT SERIES Friday 22 February

Brooks Williams Mumford Theatre, 1.10pm With fiery guitar, a rich and silky voice, and hook-laden songs, Brooks Williams is one of the most commanding performers on the roots music scene. Walking the line between Blues and Americana, he is ranked one of the world’s Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists. In the time-honoured road-warrior tradition, Williams has honed his songs on stages from Dallas to London, Istanbul to Anchorage, Toronto to Dublin, Detroit to Glasgow, Nairobi to Belfast, New York to Sardinia. Recent appearances include Celtic Connections, Glastonbury, Cambridge Folk Festival and Birmingham Jazz and Blues Fest. His recorded work weighs in at a staggering 21 CDs to date, including State of the Union, his on-going collaboration with legendary songwriter Boo Hewerdine. Born in Statesboro Georgia USA – from the land of blues legend Blind Willie McTell – Williams’ music is informed by his southern roots. Whether performing a classic blues standard or one of his newer compositions, his compass points to the blues and country crossroads. Blues Revue says of Brooks Williams: “How soulful a solo guitarist can be when he has talent, taste and astonishing technique.”

Theatre & Dance Icarus Theatre Collective Spring Awakening Monday 25 February, 7.30pm A powerful production of this haunting classic play about the terrors of becoming an adult. Set in late 19th century Germany, the play follows a highly religious community with straight and gay teens exploring youth’s furtive sexual awakenings. These young people push imposing boundaries as puberty overtakes them and their lives are changed forever. 15-year-old Melchior is chased out of town for acts of hedonistic, lewd and despicable moral character. But Melchior is the brightest boy in school and knows sex is just a natural act that ends in the beauty of childbirth. Wendla, the 14-year-old girl-next-door, dies during a tragic abortion thrust upon her by narrowminded parents. Crushed by Wendla’s death and persecuted by the authorities (and even his own parents) Melchior battles through purgatory where he confronts the ghosts of his past.

Michelangelo Drawing Blood Tuesday 7 May, 7.30pm Michelangelo: painter, sculptor, architect, engineer and poet the original, and perhaps ultimate, Renaissance man.

Ruskin Gallery The Ruskin Gallery is a unique exhibition space surrounded by artists’ studios on the Anglia Ruskin University campus. Open to the general public, all exhibitions are free and carefully selected to provide a singular and memorable gallery-going experience. The Ruskin Gallery welcomed visitors in Autumn 2012 to enjoy exhibitions such as Deepest Sympathy, a series of computer-animated works which considered various aspects of contemporary living and (Un) Sustainable? a large sculptural installation that used solar energy to power the inflation of large letters to question the idea of sustainability. Spring 2013 promises to be equally diverse and engaging with highlights including Visualizing Information and Dutch Digital Freefight from Avans University of Applied Sciences, funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund and Cross-border cooperation program 2007-2013). Outside In: East provides a platform for artists who find it difficult to enter the art world due to health, disability or social reasons and The Marmite Prize for Painting IV will showcase the work of 32 artists. The Ruskin Gallery enormously enriches the cultural life of our University’s staff and students – an experience which we are delighted to be able to share with the wider community. 10 10

Among Other Things

Ruskin Gallery and Balcony

Wednesday 2 – Thursday 31 January Private View: Thursday 24 January, 5.00pm Talk: Thursday 24 January, 4.00pm – 5.00pm, RUS 110; Paul O’Kane will talk in response to the exhibition Among Other Things brings together objects, video, sound and installation by four contemporary, international artists who question what it means to produce work through encounters with and between people. At a time when the role, effect and stories of objects are undergoing renewed scrutiny and interest, the exhibition asks what differences, if any, might be evident between encounters with ‘objects’ formed through relational practices, and those produced from the traditional artistic disciplines. The artworks in the exhibition reflect a multiplicity of ideas and approaches towards the process of artistic production including explorations of chance, dialogue, distribution and evolving strategies of engagement. Crucially, the artists in the exhibition engage with material outcomes to address social and political notions of agency, (re-)assembly and futurity. Here, beyond props to past events, and in a critical spirit of collectivity, the artists hint at potential events to come or yet to be imagined.

Diversity of Voices Ruskin Gallery Wednesday 6 – Thursday 21 February Private View: Thursday 7 February, 5.00pm Talk: Thursday 7 February, 1.00pm – 2.00pm, RUS 110; the artist, curator and a member of staff from Cambridge University Botanic Garden discuss the subject matter of the exhibition Austrian painter Karim Pliem’s series of images establishes a correspondence between nature and civilization, as well as emotional and rational design. During her travels around the world she gathers diverse natural objects, from different and unrelated sources, integrating these into her image repertoire. Pliem’s aim is to create a dialogue of contrasting opposites, creating an unresolved intermezzo between paintings and imagery. Using the Ruskin Gallery’s digital technology, the painted images are expanded into a new mobile constellation: 3-D screens present continually changing details of the paintings. Austrian Jazz composer/musician Klemens Pliem creates a soundscape interpreting the paintings as different emotional ‘moods’.

VISUALISING INFORMATION Ruskin Basement Wednesday 10 – Saturday 20 April Private View: Thursday 18 April, 5.00pm Data is everywhere but mostly as boring numbers, it is great for computers and machines but humans need other input; only when it is presented in a meaningful way will it become information.

Music Music at Anglia Ruskin has a long and distinguished history and our numerous public concerts and musical performances throughout the year range from early music to jazz, classical symphonic works to electro-acoustic extravaganzas and, of course, our full-scale operas. Frequent orchestral and choral concerts are mounted at venues in the city and a large array of smaller ensembles form a regular part of our University’s and city’s musical life. As well as performances in our own Recital Hall, there are also concerts and musicals in the Mumford Theatre, local churches, The Junction and West Road Concert Hall. Our regular series of Friday lunchtime concerts, which draws some of the world’s finest performers to our University, has become one of the highlights of Cambridge’s musical calendar. The series (directed by Alan Rochford) is generously supported by the Anglia Ruskin Arts Council and we are therefore able to offer free admission to all lunchtime concerts. We hope to welcome you to these events.

All lunchtime concerts take place at the Mumford Theatre at 1.10pm, unless stated otherwise, and are free to attend

Anglia Opera

Carmina Burana

(staged version)

Friday 24 & Saturday 25 May, 7.30pm Mumford Theatre by Carl Orff Conducted by Paul Jackson Directed by Simon Bell Designed by John Clarke Carl Orff’s secular cantata, Carmina Burana, was originally conceived by the composer as an example of ‘Theatrum Mundi’, a dramatic concept in which music, acting, dance, masks, costumes, and sets were inseparable. A setting of 13th century songs and poems collected under the same name, Orff’s Carmina Burana is subtitled Secular songs for singers and choruses to be sung together with instruments and magic images. Whilst the piece has gained near universal popularity, notably through its use in film and television, staged versions are rarely undertaken. Anglia Opera’s production presents Orff’s masterpiece as originally intended; a mesmerising visual and aural feast, celebrating the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling and lust. Tickets: £12.00 (£8.00 concessions) Tickets are available from the Mumford Theatre Box Office on 0845 196 2320 or online at www.anglia.ac.uk/mumfordtheatre

Anglia Ruskin Orchestra and Chorus Wednesday 20 March, 7.30pm West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge Conducted by Paul Rhys, Alan Rochford Bach (arr. Maxwell Davies) – Two Preludes and Fugues Haydn – Symphony No. 49 (La Passione) Eisler – Suite No.2, Op.24 (Niemandsland) Orff – Carmina Burana Anglia Ruskin Orchestra and Chorus begin their spring concert season with the beautiful arrangement of two of Bach’s Preludes and Fugues by Master of the Queen’s Music, Peter Maxwell Davies. Haydn’s Symphony No. 49 (La Passione), the darkest of his Sturm und Drang symphonies, foreshadows music of the romantic generation. Eisler’s Suite No.2 Op.24 (Niemandsland), written for a 1931 which tells the story of soldiers from both sides finding a safe haven in no-man’s land, brings the first half to a rousing, if bittersweet, close. The concert concludes with a performance of Carl Orff’s most popular work, the scenic cantata Carmina Burana, in the version for chorus, two pianos and percussion. Originally intended as a staged work involving dance, choreography, visual design and other stage action, Carmina Burana has established itself as one of the cornerstones of twentieth-century classical music repertoire. Tickets: £10.00 (£7.00 concessions, £5.00 Anglia Ruskin students and children) Tickets are available from the Mumford Theatre Box Office on 0845 196 2320 or online at www.anglia.ac.uk/mumfordtheatre
