Townsend Productions Presents

WE WILL BE FREE THE TOLPUDDLE MARTYRS' STORY

Friday 21 Feb, 7.30pm Tickets: £10/£8 Members and Concessions Age guidance: Suitable for 11+

Travel back to Dorset, 1834, a time when wages are being cut and civil liberties are threatened... You’ll meet George Loveless and his no-nonsense wife Betsy. George was the leader of the Tolpuddle Martyrs, a group who were sent to Australia in 1834 for swearing a secret oath to form a union and fight against wage cuts inflicted by the local landowner. Betsy tells the story of his transportation to Australia, how the women left at home survived with little or no money, and how they worked together, against the odds, to bring the men back to England. With music developed by folk legend John Kirkpatrick and plenty of opportunities for laugh out loud participation, it will be a rousing evening of entertainment for all. We Will Be Free was originally commissioned for the Tolpuddle Festival, went straight to Edinburgh and has been touring ever since.

“It's a family-friendly piece that presents an important bit of history inventively and enjoyably.” **** Fest

HOPELESSLY DEVOTED BY KATE TEMPEST

Saturday 15 Mar, 7.30pm Tickets: £11/£9 Members and Concessions Age guidance: Suitable for 14+

Chess is in prison. Facing a lengthy sentence, her cellmate becomes her soul mate. But when Serena is given parole, Chess faces total isolation. Hope comes in the form of a music producer looking for a reason to love music again. She finds a powerful voice in Chess. But to harness her talent, Chess must first face her past. Following her smash-hit debut Wasted, Kate Tempest’s incendiary new play combines lyrical fireworks with exhilarating live music. Wasted premiered in Birmingham prior to a highly-acclaimed national tour and sell-out London run so don’t miss this opportunity to see Kate’s explosive new work here first.

“Tempest’s play is a thing of passion and power – in her world music might not be able to heal all but it can bring hope.” The Stage

Untied Artists Present

FOR THEIR OWN GOOD Wednesday 26 Mar, 7.30pm Tickets: ÂŁ10/ÂŁ8 Members and Concessions Fringe First Award Winner 2013 Two knackermen, a horse and a gun Using the allegory of the slaughterhouse Untied Artists ask: Can the way that we kill animals teach us anything about our own demise? With unflinching honesty and an eerily detached workmanship, two knackermen investigate the pitfalls of being high up the evolutionary chain. While dispatching the sick, lame or just plain old their own mortality is suddenly and sharply brought into focus. Combining documentary material from veterinary surgeries, farms, abattoirs, hospitals and homes with beautiful puppetry and new writing this show tells a moving and darkly comic tale about the only certainty in life. Expect gallows humour and a lightness of touch. This play is funny, visually impressive and aims to be moving without being prescriptive. You will be pushed to find a performance more original, powerful and challenging than For Their Own Good.

Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Presents

SAUCE FOR THE GOOSE Friday 30 May, 7.30pm Tickets: £12/£11 Members

|

£10 Concessions

Age guidance: Suitable for 12+

Georges Feydeau’s high spirited romp Sauce For The Goose is stuffed with preening characters knitting their legs in sexual frustration. Its heady mix of passions, pace and pleasure are the perfect mix for a good night out. The plot is simple: Lucienne is being pursued by the married Pontagnac, who is astounded to discover that she is already married to his friend Vatelin. Lucienne has sworn to be faithful as long as her husband remains so too. But then a keen old ‘indiscretion’ of her husband’s arrives with her own husband from Germany in tow. Untrustworthy husbands, betrayed wives, artful servants and crazed Germans demonstrate why the "naughty nineties" were so named, as master French farceur Feydeau's sparkling play switches from riotous farce to barbed social satire. This exuberant play is brought to life by a new generation of talent fresh from one of Britain’s finest drama schools.

POWER GAMES Friday 28 Mar, 7.30pm Tickets: £10 Members | £8 Concessions Age guidance: Suitable for ages 13+ | Duration: 1 hour 10 minutes

Meet Deepack. He’s a wealthy investment banker and thereby a dislikeable character. He enjoys casinos and champagne, but life is spiraling out of control... and his fate is in your hands. Following a game show format, the audience is introduced to a host who gives everyone two cards, A and B. Should he take out a girl? Or should he go out with his friends? Vote for A or B – you decide. Will you encourage him to be sensible or deliberately egg him on to see what bad stuff will happen? Told through Bharahanatyam, a South Indian dance style that communicates through gesture. This is the show to get you involved, it’s accessible, following a fun storyline. This entertaining show will have you laughing, joking and talking to the person next to you about how you will be voting. * See page 39 for more information


THE BUTTERCUP AND THE CRUTCH PLUS A LIVE MUSICAL ACCOMPANIMENT Saturday 26 Apr, 7.30pm Tickets: £10 Members | £8 Concessions Age guidance: Suitable for ages 12+

A double bill that tells a human and truthful story of love and hope. The Crutch is about an intense and unequal relationship of need. A girl and a guy take to the stage to tell their story through physical and visual interaction, at times funny, surprising and sad. We see their attempts to fix something that is fundamentally broken fail. It shows what it’s like to support someone while you are falling apart yourself. The Buttercup is a more personal journey that asks: ‘what lifts you when you are at your lowest point?’ ending on a note of hope and lightness.

“I related to this show through my own experiences of a break up. I found The Crutch powerful and moving; while The Buttercup was a sorbet in comparison. You feel like you have been on a journey with them both. You are uplifted” Audience Member

Music

SONGBIRD PLUS SUPPORT FROM PORTICO Friday 7 Feb, 8.30pm Tickets: £8 Advance Discover a collection of songs by Bridport based Steve Jones and Chloe Evans-Lipett at the launch of their new album Songbird. Standing somewhere between the old and the new; the music has a jazzy bluesy feel to it, at the same time it has elements of bright and brilliant commercial pop. The album features ten local musicians including Dan Anderson, Laurie Higgins, Jack Revy, Kez Byth, Michael Grew and Stompin’ Dave. At least five of these musicians will be joining them on stage, getting as close to the original sound as possible. The duo originally came together touring covers including old jazz standards. However, a sudden onset of health problems meant that they were unable to gig. The two of them decided to continue with the recording - but this time by writing their own songs. The music on Songbird has been informed and enriched by their many experiences, showing that adversity can open doors as much as it can close them.

Friday 25 Apr, 8pm Tickets: £10

Imogen’s unique and heartfelt interpretations of the jazz standard repertoire have made her a popular performer with both audiences and musicians alike.

He’s played with his own bands the Honkin’ Hep Cats and Big Buzzard Boogie Band on BBC Radio; and as a sideman with Tom Robinson, Suggs and Martha Reeves & the Vandellas. His versatile style on sax and voice creates an interesting, eclectic and highly enjoyable performance, which will be complemented by Philip Clouts at the piano.

Literature & Spoken Word

STORY CAFÉ Tickets: £7 Adults | £6 Members 5 Concessions Suitable for adults and older children Myths are so powerful because they are about what happens to all of us. We’ve all experienced the moment where we can’t resist opening the door we’ve been told not to open... and we’ve all suffered the consequences… The Arts Garden Cafe lends itself to storytelling. Something magical happens, you become part of the story and you can feel the change in the room. You will always be given a warm welcome and will not be expected to participate beyond being a reflective listener.

THE WARMTH OF WINTER MICHAEL LOADER (STORYTELLER) MARTIN SOLOMON (MUSICIAN) Friday 17 Jan, 7.30pm A selected serving of spicy stories, well-seasoned music and stirring song to warm your cockles and bring a glow to your giggle in the depths of Midwinter.

TURNING TIMES JANE FLOOD (STORYTELLER) MARTIN SOLOMON (HARPIST) DYMPHNA SKEHILL (SINGER) Friday 21 Mar, 7.30pm Word, music and voice wrapped around each other to create a new collaboration between three fantastic performers. We know that everything changes all the time – and this is an exploration of those changes brought to the Story Café at the time of the Vernal Equinox. Using story, song and music,

26

Jane, Martin and Dymphna will evoke and challenge the great whirling wheel of time, the dance of life and the small questions that leave us spinning. There will be laughs, wry smiles and may be a few furrowed brows but the evening will leave you heartwarmed, content and thoughtful.

SHONALEIGH CUMBERS Friday 16 May, 7.30pm One of the foremost oral Storytellers on the British scene, she travels globally, drawing on her Yiddish, English and European Culture. She enables you to enter a world of image and music with breathtaking vividness. A modern day Shaharazad.

“Shonaleigh is in a class of her own!” Mike Rust, Director, Festival at the Edge


POEMS OF LOVE AND HATE Friday 14 Feb, 11am Tickets: £6 Adult | £5 Members and Concessions Celebrate Valentine's Day with a selection of poems read by Margie Barbour, David Bushrod and Christine Prideaux. These will range form classical to modern poems, demonstrating how little has changed. You can also expect a selection of romantic songs by Emily Hicks.

MURRAY LACHLAN YOUNG IS THE ALIEN BALLADEER Friday 14 Mar, 8pm Tickets: £12 | £10 Members and Concessions Quick-fire, sharp-witted BC6 Poet in Residence Murray Lachlan Young brings his Radio 4 series The Alien Balladeer to the stage. He and his musical fellow traveller Bess Cavendish will take you on a quirky and distinctive journey, making the everyday seem extraordinary. Young's hilarious stage play the Incomers came to the Arts Centre in May 2013 and had audiences gasping with shock before roaring with laughter. This promises to be another fine evening in the hands of one of the UK’s hottest wordsmiths.

Allsop Gallery

A WORLD OF DREAMS 150 YEARS OF SCREEN ADAPTATION Saturday 1 Mar – Saturday 5 Apr Audiences and filmmakers have always been fascinated by stories – and particularly by stories that are somehow familiar. Even before cinema, popular tales were being adapted for the magic lantern and as film began classics and popular fiction were immediately plundered for material. Ever since books and plays have been transformed from the page to the screen – in some cases multiple times. Leading up to the Art Centre's From Page to Screen Film Festival, this exhibition showcases over a century of artifacts related to adaptation. From the amazing collections of The Bill Douglas Cinema Museum at the University of Exeter, these show the continuing obsession with translating words into images. Curator’s Talk: Saturday 22 Mar, 2pm, FREE Dr Philip Wickham from the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum will be talking about the artifacts chosen for the exhibition and the stories behind them. www.exeter.ac.uk Find us on Facebook and Twitter @bdcmuseum

CHRISTOPHER WINTER: TELLING TALES

Allsop Gallery

Saturday 12 Apr – Saturday 10 May Christopher Winter creates paintings that appear at first to be simple depictions of idyllic scenes but on a second glance challenge us to reassess our initial impressions. Our surroundings and our own sense of reality are brought into question and begin to unravel. The English artist now residing in Berlin has recreated his own displacement in his paintings. Rendered in postcard-like tints, the undulating mountainous landscapes become a devil’s playground for Teutonic Gothic menace. Winter exults in the subliminal—the weightless borderline between innocence and experience, the familiar and the uncanny, the perceiver and the perceived.

Preview: Friday 11 Apr, 6 – 8pm, FREE Join us for the exhibition opening, during which a séance performance will take place with Winter’s ‘Holbein Table’. Christopher Winter is represented by Edelman Arts, New York, Mindy Solomon Gallery, Miami and Lehr Zeitgenössische Kunst, Cologne / Berlin. This exhibition is being generously supported by the Mindy Solomon Gallery. www.christopher-winter.com

Allsop Gallery

HOME IN BRIDPORT Wednesday 14 May – Saturday 31 May This exhibition of photography, film, text, audio recording and fine art reveal many personal views of the people of Bridport. It explores this beautiful, eccentric, liberal and sometimes conservative town, where artists rub shoulders with fishermen, where cider pints clink against wine glasses, where a third of the town live in poverty and where the young are often frustrated with the smallness and leave as retirees arrive and settle. Photo credit: Robert Golden

‘HOME in Bridport’ is a long-term exploration of how culture, the arts and food support emotional and physical development in people of all ages, and helps rebuild lost connections between people and their communities.

Café & Foyer Galleries

DERYA ERDEM Tuesday 25 Feb – Saturday 29 Mar

DRAWING INSPIRATION Tuesday 8 Apr – Saturday 10 May

Combining elements of painting and photography, Derya aims to create an illusion reflecting the familiarity of our physical world. Underpinned by childhood memories, these fragmented images of dream-like narratives and playful characters are often based on real events and experiences thrown up in daily life. Macro details of enlarged photographic images provide the background, overlaid with painted collages and features designed to look like images torn from story books. Derya’s objective is to entangle reality with fantasy, and convey a sense of ambiguity between these concepts. deryerdem.blogspot.co.uk

The Café features Interrogating Landscapes Part 1, the first in a series of works exploring local landmark sites. Organised by Dorset Visual Arts, the exhibition is part of the Drawing Inspiration project, exploring landscape art across the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Foyer exhibition, Landscape Re-presented, is the result of a collaboration between photographer Richard Jeffery and students from Beaminster and Sir John Colfox schools. For further information on the Drawing Inspiration project, other exhibitions and events visit: www.dorsetaonb.org.uk

HERITAGE

– Dafydd

James

Tuesday 4 & Wednesday 5 Mar at 7pm Tickets: £5 | £3 Concessions As part of National Theatre Connections 2014, BACStage, Bridport Arts Centre’s Youth Theatre for 12 to 18 year olds, presents Heritage by Dafydd James, a blistering black comedy that explores the darker side of nationalism. Set on Mayday, a group of misfit young people have been chosen to close the day’s festivities. As their rehearsal breaks down, they begin to suspect they’ve been chosen for a far darker purpose… Each year the National Theatre invites ten writers to create new plays for young people to perform. This spring 230 youth theatre companies will present the premieres of these plays in venues from Scotland to Cornwall and Northern Ireland to Norfolk. Each company will also perform at one of 26 Connections festivals in professional theatres across the country, and ten companies will go on to perform at the National Theatre. Connections celebrates great new writing for the stage – and the energy, commitment and talent of young theatre-makers.
