Political Mother was commisioned by Brighton Festival 2010, followed by a sell-out run at Sadler’s Wells. Deemed ‘an audiovisual marvel’ (Daily Telegraph), it was celebrated for its unforgettable rock gig atmosphere, the choreographer’s own ground-shaking score, and its breathtaking ensemble sequences.

Brendan Cole

Valentine’s Ball

Anton and Erin

Udifydance Company

Everyone’s favourite Strictly star slips on his dancing shoes for another chance to catch his sell-out live spectacular.

What better way to celebrate love’s eternal flame than a romantic rendezvous on the dance floor…

After Steppin’ Out in 2010 and Puttin’ on the Ritz in 2011, Britain’s best-loved dance duo returns with a brand-new live celebration of classic ballroom dance.

This up-and-coming all male dance company presents two new works by Artistic Director Christopher Reynolds and invites you to finish the sentence however that may be…

Brendan Cole hit the spotlight in the UK as the hugely talented lovable rogue from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. Now he returns to the live arena in the company of his sensational 14-piece band and a scorching line-up of fellow former Strictly pros (including his own brother Scott Cole). With a host of classic dance moves – from the sensual rumba to the elegant foxtrot; from the red hot salsa to the dynamic pasa doble – all played out to a live soundtrack of classics by Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Jennifer Lopez et al – it’s show time Strictly style: live, explosive and up-close-and-personal!

This annual evening of classic ballroom dance is a firm favourite for star-crossed lovers (or just good friends!) of all ages and genders. With live music courtesy of the 10-piece Berkeley Square Society Band, evoking the golden age of the foxtrot, quickstep and cha-cha-cha, you’ll be dancing till you drop. Or simply sit back, enjoy the music and soak up the elegant ambience of the historic Corn Exchange.

Here, with a glittering cast that includes singer Lance Ellington, guest dancers and full orchestra (conducted by Richard Balcombe), they present a live dance and music spectacular played out to the timeless classics of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Irving Berlin et al.

Following on from their debut tour 4 Men:Move, Christopher Reynolds pays homage to the company’s style of exciting floor work infused with the creation of a dynamic vocabulary.

Candoco Dance Company

Blanca Li Dance Company

Turning 20 - Anniversary Programme

Elektro Kif

Britain’s acclaimed company of disabled and non-disabled dancers travels to the past, present and future in celebration of 20 years of bold and unexpected dance works.

Take the urban street-dance style ‘electro’ - a dazzling mix of breaking, disco, vogue, popping and locking - straight from the suburbs of Paris. Mix in some physical theatre, contemporary dance and a blistering soundtrack of techno, electro house, Afrobeat and classical music. Add an all-male cast of eight exceptional young electro dancers. Then, tell the story of their lives - their everyday hopes, fears, friendships and rivalries - played out across a typical day at college.

From 1983, comes the restaging project, Set and Reset/Reset by Trisha Brown Dance Company. Using the original concept from her playful choreography, Laurie Anderson’s contagious score and Robert Rauschenberg’s beautiful designs, Candoco adds its unique signature to this timeless classic. Confronting the present is French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane in an atmospheric, visually striking new company work that reveals private portraits of the dancers. Rounding off the programme is Matthias Sperling’s light-hearted, quirky solo, an intimate encounter with one of Candoco’s dancers that anticipates what the future might hold.

The result is the fastest, funniest, most colourful and anarchic live street-dance show you’ll ever experience! Created by Spanish choreographer, director, dancer and actor Blanca Li with original music by Tao Gutierrez.

Building on the company’s rich and diverse experience, these three works herald the next 20 years of innovative and exploratory dance-making.

The Floating Palace

featuring Robyn Hitchcock, Martin Carthy, Abigail Washburn, KT Tunstall, Eliza Carthy and Howe Gelb Singer-songwriter, guitarist and renowned English eccentric Robyn Hitchcock curates this intimate evening of free-wheeling musical collaboration. It’s a simple concept: musicians admire each other, are a little envious of each other, and, given the chance, like to play together. But normally they only manage this in the studio, or after hours. Until now! Here, a carousel of exceptional ‘roots’ artists - all lit within by their passion for music - come together to perform live, accompanying each other on songs they know and songs they’ve only just met. Robyn Hitchcock is joined by award-winning Scottish songstress KT Tunstall, folk legends Martin and Eliza Carthy, banjo chanteuse Abigail Washburn and alt-country experimentalist Howe Gelb (of Giant Sand fame).

Ben L’Oncle Soul

Roberto Fonseca

plus support from Ayanna

As his first ever UK show outside London, Ben L’Oncle offers a wild celebration of everything that’s thrilling about the classic soul revues. He grew up listening to Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin, and combines Kanye West-style R&B, Motown groove and Stax horns with a great, way-over-the-top live show. He’s become an arena artist in France, and after he sang his soul version of White Stripes’ Seven Nation Army on Later with Jools Holland, he played London Jazz Festival to a packed, ecstatic audience.

This annual tour, brought to you by the UK’s leading music magazine, showcases the year’s most exciting emerging music talent. This exclusive platform is renowned for giving the freshest new acts their first taste of national notoriety – past alumni include Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Florence & The Machine, Crystal Castles and The Vaccines. The line-up for 2012 – including Bangor’s indie-electro outfit Two Door Cinema Club, Devon’s electro-pop revivalists Metronomy, Camden post-grunge crew Tribes and young New York rap sensation Azealia Banks captures the spirit of the year just gone and sets the agenda for an equally explosive forthcoming twelve months.

‘Simply astounding.’ The Times Back in the UK for the first time in three years, the influential American folk singer rounds off her 2012 tour right here at Brighton Dome. From her debut at the Newport Folk Festival in 1959 to her appearance alongside Nelson Mandela at his 90th birthday celebrations, Joan Baez has been at the forefront of American music and political activism for over 50 years. Throughout that time she has remained a musical force of nature, releasing some 25 studio albums and immortalising the songs of such enduring artists as Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson and Steve Earle.

Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 Kreisler (arr.  Rachmaninoff/orch. Leytush) Liebesleid Rachmaninoff Symphony No. 2

Weber Overture, Oberon Mendelssohn Violin Concerto Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending Sibelius Symphony No. 5

Mendelssohn Overture, Ruy Blas Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4

Here is the very height of touching, heartrending romance from the composer who arguably did both those qualities better than any other. There’s a reason Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto is his most popular: it’s his most rapturous, his most readily moving and his most sweepingly emotive. There’s also a reason his Second Symphony is played more than any other of its companions. Here thick, rich textures and sombre harmonies wrap themselves around Rachmaninoff’s finely contoured melodies, the music smouldering, flaring up and eventually propelling itself towards a whirling, spirited climax. Surrender to the alluring warmth and beauty of Rachmaninoff.

Vaughan Williams’s lark soars skywards - spiralling, floating and propelling its way towards the firmament with a sense of aspiration and discovery: a lone creature set against the expanse of the skies; a single violin countering the weight of the orchestra. When he saw a flock of sixteen swans taking flight over his Järvenpää villa, Sibelius knew he’d glimpsed the blazing light of optimism amid a sea of dark depression. He thrust the swans’ sure but graceful ascent into the final movement of his Fifth Symphony, which itself soars optimistically upwards, free from its creator’s earthly concerns.

Fate. It has hung dagger-like over the art of music since Beethoven seized it by the throat. In 1877, Tchaikovsky felt its weighty hand on his shoulder. His artistic response was a Symphony unlike anything he’d created before: ‘This is fate’, he revealed to his confidante Nadezhda von Meck, explaining the opening notes of his heart-on-sleeve Fourth Symphony. But by the Symphony’s final chapter, Tchaikovsky’s darkness had turned to light. ‘Rejoice in others’ rejoicing’, he urged Nadezhda, and the Symphony veered towards the sort of unstoppable, ebullient confidence and joy that Beethoven captured so gloriously in his First Piano Concerto.

Last year the Quartet recorded its first CD, of Peteris Vasks’ quartets, and took part in the BBC Proms chamber music series at Cadogan Hall with pianist Francesco Piemontesi.

‘They have a warmly rounded and very expressive sound.’ The Independent

Such is the reputation of the Endellion that its thirtieth anniversary celebrations (2009) spawned a series of major new projects. These included the release of a boxed set of the complete Beethoven string quartets; new commissions for poets Wendy Cope (with Roxana Panufnik) and Andrew Motion (setting new text to Haydn’s Seven Last Words); and involvement in Phill Grabsky’s film In Search of Beethoven. Wherever the Quartet performs, it ‘sets the audience ablaze’ (Daily Telegraph) and ‘captivates concertgoers with a remarkable rapport.’ (Guardian).

Subtly but distinctively charismatic, the Berlin-based Kuss Quartet is firmly established in the elite of the world’s string quartets, marked out by its readiness to experiment, not only with its engagement in early and new music, but with its interpretations of the standard quartet repertoire. The breadth of the Quartet’s reach is exemplified in its Sony BMG CD release Bridges, which, creating connections across the centuries, juxtaposes transcriptions of Renaissance masters with contemporary innovators.

The BSO continues its Brighton Dome residency with a concert of grand statements and rapturous energy. Leonore No.3 is arguably the greatest and certainly the most potent of the four overtures Beethoven wrote for his epic opera , Fidelio. Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini embodies his late style at its brilliant best, with wit, invention and irresistible melodies.

This concert of northern festivities opens gently with Mendelssohn’s descriptive overture on a calm day by the sea, followed by Grieg’s Piano Concerto, which owes its popularity to its pianistic bravura and lyrical melodies based on Norwegian folk tunes. Sibelius flies the flag for Scandinavia in his solemn declaration of love for his Finally, Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony - written under homeland. Then, it’s further north still with Tchaikovsky’s pressure from the brutal Stalinist state might have appeased the take on the greatest love story of all. Finally, Grieg takes the authorities, but beneath its surface grandeur and undeniable reins once more, with tales of Norwegian national hero beauty, the composer’s steely disdain shone through. Peer Gynt, his love, Anitra, and the stomping Mountain King. The BSO and talented young conductor Rui Pinheiro are joined by renowned pianist Freddy Kempf.

Benjamin Britten was president of Brighton Philharmonic from 1958 to 1966. Here the orchestra anticipates the composer’s centenary in 2013 with a concert presenting various aspects of his genius. First, as a composer, with Four Sea Interludes from the opera Peter Grimes. Then, as a performer and viola player, with his favourite concerto K364. His arranging and pragmatic musicianship come to the fore in the Rossini adaptations; and his contribution to the early music movement and to music education are celebrated in the Young Person’s Guide. The concert also showcases two talented members of the Yehudi Menuhin School, who join the orchestra in Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.

In a programme that pays tribute to the BPO’s connections with the Royal Opera House, Vasko Vassilev, concertmaster at the ROH, joins the orchestra for two virtuosic showpieces for violin by the Spanish-born composer Pablo de Sarasate. The concert also features one of the best known operatic overtures, plus music from the ballet Pineapple Poll, based on a quick romp around Arthur Sullivan’s music for HMS Pinafore, Cox and Box and Overture di ballo, as arranged and adapted by the late, great Charles Mackerras.

Chabrier Espana Rodrigo Concierto del Aranjuez Bizet Orchestral Suite from Carmen Debussy Petite Suite Nigel Westlake Shadow Dances for Guitar Rimsky Korsakov Capriccio Espagnol This programme celebrates Spain – the glorious sunshine, and the music it has inspired in composers both indigenous and foreign to its lands. There’s the alborado, the fandango and flamenco songs as interpreted by a Russian. There’s Spanish popular airs as heard through the ears of a Frenchman. And the fragrances and evocative sounds of nature from a Spaniard who, though a pianist, seems to capture the very soul of the guitar in his music. Craig Ogden, one of the world’s leading guitarists, completes the programme with a work from his native Australia.

Musical portraits of England and Hungary feature in this evocative programme. Arnold Bax was a great supporter of and attender at BPO concerts in the 1930s; his powerful work, Tintagel, conjures the stormy Atlantic seas and rugged cliffs of Cornwall. Norfolk Rhapsody– a BPO Audience Choice – is just one of the many works Vaughan Williams was inspired to write after his exploration and collection of native regional folk song in England. The Elgar Cello Concerto is one of the most famous and moving works in the repertoire and was written in deepest Sussex. The concert closes with Dvo ř ák’s dance-like Eighth Symphony.

With soloist John Lill in a sensuous final concert of the season, the BPO explores the sleepy afternoon musings of a faun; tackles one of the most physically demanding of piano concertos; and presents the exciting and passionate love token of a smitten composer for his beloved. Our soloist is one of Brighton’s favourites, the orchestra’s current president and eminent pianist, John Lill.

Waltz back in time to the glittering ballrooms of 19th Century Vienna with an enchanting mix of music, song and dance from the Strauss Family and Friends. David Juritz directs from the violin in the traditional Viennese manner and the Johann Strauss Orchestra is joined by the Johann Strauss Dancers in glorious period costume. This new show for 2012 welcomes classics such as the Tritsch Tratsch Polka, Blue Danube Waltz, Thunder and Lightning Polka, Pizzicato Polka and more… A wonderful evening guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

Big Cheer for Amaze 2012

Terry Garoghan

Reginald D Hunter

The Last Ever Brighton the Musical!

Sometimes Even The Devil Tells The Truth

‘Brighton wouldn’t be the same without Terry.’ The Argus

‘This is the show in which Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today… and he’s never been funnier.’ ***** The Times

Since 1996 this well-loved sing-along has ripped the stuffing out of Brighton, its surrounding areas and residents with such hilarious and disrespectful delights as A Businessman in Whitehawk and I Believe in Dockerills. Now, after 16 years, Terry Garoghan, the city’s (unofficial) mayor, dons his chains of office for the very last time. Join him, join in (lyrics are on a giant screen), and bid farewell to a unique, popular Brighton institution.

Star-studded charity stand-up night

Following his sell out show during the Brighton Comedy Festival, Reginald D Hunter is back!

Paul Merton Out Of My Head

A stellar cast from the top drawer of British comedy comes together for one night of side-splitting stand-up in support of local charity Amaze.

In just over a decade, Reginald D Hunter has become one of the UK Comedy industry’s best-known and most distinctive performers. His work is often brutally honest, frequently controversial but always meticulously measured and thought out. ‘His presence and intelligence make him one of the most brilliantly unpredictable comics in the country.’ Sunday Times In association with Just For Laughs Live

With Paul Merton, Lee Simpson, Richard Vranch and Suki Webster. The star of Have I Got News for You and Just a Minute returns to his stand-up roots for the first time this century… Wonder at the bizarre workings of his mind as he muses on the mighty behemoth that is his noggin. And discover that away from the Have I Got News for You desk, the man has legs!

Big Cheer 2011 featured such comedy greats as Noel Fielding, Steve Coogan, Count Arthur Strong, Simon Evans, Andi Osho and Seann Walsh. This year promises an equally entertaining and hilarious line-up, to be announced shortly, so watch this space for full details! In aid of Amaze, the local charity that supports families of children with special needs and disabilities.

Join the master of improv comedy for a night of sketches, music, magic, variety and dancing girls (two of them aren’t girls!).

Blind Summit Theatre

Horse + Bamboo

The Table

Red Riding Hood

Fresh from a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, innovators Blind Summit Theatre present an award winning, brand new show about a puppet stuck on a table.

A young girl, a hungry wolf, and a walk through the woods – it sounds like a recipe for disaster. But Red Riding Hood’s not scared… Well maybe she is,just a little bit...

Meet Moses, a puppet with a cardboard head. He’s having an existential crisis at the hands of his puppeteers. They take him (and you) on a hilarious visual journey of disembodied heads told entirely by pictures emerging from a briefcase. Using the team’s trademark extreme puppetry style, this story combines the dark humour of Beckett and the flat-pack technology of Ikea.

This delightful retelling of the classic girl-and-the-wolf tale blends exquisite visuals with pantomime-style silliness and fairy-tale spookiness to conjure an enchanting piece of family theatre.

The company that created the puppetry in Anthony Minghella’s award winning Madam Butterfly, get back to their Low Life roots as the ‘front men of rock’n’roll puppetry’ (Time Out) and prove that ‘when you’re working in miniature you don’t have to think small.’ (The Guardian)

Brought to you by the company that created A Storm in a Teacup and Little Leap Forward, this captivating production revisits the Brothers Grimm classic with fresh eyes and ears. All the better to entertain you with! Age 4+

Folded Feather

Suitcase Circus

‘Astonishingly accomplished puppetry.’

I, Bertolt Brecht

‘Suitcase Circus are outstanding.’ Time Out London A hilarious and heart-warming family-friendly show that unpacks quite a punch…

The Telegraph

Meet Wobulous Discombobulous, the anarchic sock as he presents a line-up of the most extraordinarily talented yet utterly unlikely performing objects, each with its own captivating storyline.

‘It is difficult to imagine a more thorough and engaging introduction to Brecht’s life and work … This show instructs and entertains with the thrill of repeated insights…’ Time Out

Introducing the world’s only acrobatic potato sack, a daredevil ski glove, an incredible dancing milkshake straw, the hypnotic tie snake, Windsor Knot, and the lovable yet bizarre magical Mexican hat, Timrek.

Internationally renowned, this is a thrilling fusion of cabaret, drama, musical showcase and multi-media, a celebration of the life and works of Bertolt Brecht in a unique and compelling theatrical experience.

With delightful object puppetry and heaps of interactive fun, this hand-held spectacular puts a whole new perspective on circus as we know it. And, in time-honoured manner, it reveals its endless charms to wonderful musical accompaniment.

A cast of actors and musicians bring the humour, electricity and political edge of Brecht’s words and ideas to life in a collage of vignettes, theatrical scenes, songs and poems. With the evocative Weimar era music of Kurt Weill and Hans Eisler, plus projected footage of the playwright’s own life and work, this is a perfect introduction to Brecht, and a truly original and dynamic evening’s entertainment.

Sam Rose in the Shadows

Travels with Granddad

An uplifting and beautiful new piece of puppetry for anyone who has ever felt sad but now feels a bit better.

Meet Granddad, eccentric traveller and storyteller extraordinaire. Enter his battered Bedouin tent to hear intrepid tales of courageous deed and valiant adventure in both real and imaginary worlds.

Ivan Rose is six years old. Shut away in his little house in the city watched by his aging tutor, he fantasises about the outside world. His father, Sam, spends most of his time away, and Ivan can only imagine he is off fighting dragons and generally being a hero! Based on a story by Hal Chambers about how a father and his son become embroiled in an epic quest that will bring them face to face with love, memory and hope. This exciting puppetry-based production for families and the young has been created by the team behind the hit show Tim and Light.

Interactive Puppet Workshop with Brighton Museum

Among the plucky yarns you’ll be spun are The Clock That Stopped Time, The Violin Princess and The Most Beautiful Thing in the World, brand-new, oldfashioned fairy-tales crafted by Toby Hulse. Each escapade is brought to life through magical storytelling, evocative sounds, light, objects and exquisite puppetry. So, if you’re sitting comfortably… Part of this year’s Brighton & Hove Children’s Festival Ages 3 – 7 40 minutes plus 20 minutes of interactive activity

As part of our theatrical puppetry season, Brighton Museum is offering the opportunity to make a shadow puppet.

Alongside appearances by local crews, there’s stunning sets from Clash 66 (France & Korea), a sublime duet that will challenge the notions of hip-hop dance theatre; and the award-winning crew Pro Phoenomen (France) with their idiosyncratic fusion of street-dance styles.

The award-winning comedian, actor/screenwriter (Grandma’s House) and presenter (Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Popworld) returns with a brand new stand-up tour for 2012.

Carpet Remnant World

Fresh from his acclaimed BBC2 Comedy Vehicle series,’this most brilliant of alternative comedians’ (Metro) or ‘deeply unpleasant slimepit of bitterness’(Daily Mail), depending which paper you read, returns with a brand-new full-length touring show.But what can a sexless middle-aged married man, whose life now consists mainly of watching Scooby Doo cartoons with a four-year-old boy, possibly find to write comedy about? Formerly stand-up’s youthful iconoclast, Lee now gawps blankly at News 24 as Britain burns down around him, and blinks weirdly at the vast wayside retail outlets during endless journeys to and from increasingly indistinct provincial theatres. Once he lived on the pleasure planet. Now he is trapped in Carpet Remnant World. And so are you!

Breakin’ Convention is much more than just a show - it is an experience! Take part in freestyle sessions with live DJ demos in the foyers and workshops from top international artists, plus much more to be confirmed.
