inside this week


IT REALLY is bizarre to think that Shakespeare never saw a real woman perform in one of his plays. You really have to feel for him – I mean how many theatre directors today would do that job if they couldn’t shag their female lead? Had Ophelia, Cordelia or Desdemona flown out of the pen of a playwright in any other European country, it wouldn’t have been a problem, but England persisted with this strange practice until 1660. “Look, there’s a woman on stage,” an Elizabethan might say. “Must be a prostitute,” was the standard reply. This of course was the central premise of Shakespeare in Love: that a woman need to pretend to be a pre-pubescent in order to play a woman, and it is a theme echoed in Shakespeare’s Women, a new play written by Ian Burns and Barry McKenna, which is set to make its worldwide premiere next Wednesday (see G2 for details). In one scene, the two title characters wear beards in order to fool the Bard into conceding that the

custom is ridiculous. It might not have the comedic wow factor of Some Like it Hot, or the dramatic punch of the end of Tootsie, but is sounds like it has a lot of potential. Especially as Shakespeare can be quite sexy at times. While Hamlet and Ophelia have some pretty flirtatious moments (“Do you think I meant country matters,” the cheeky mare asks in Act 3 Scene 2), I’m a sucker for the femme fatales. One of my favourite ever lines is uttered by Regan in King Lear, moments after helping her husband gouge out somebody’s eyes. “Let him smell his way to Dover.” It cuts me to the bone every time. It wouldn’t be the same coming from an acne-ridden third grader with an Airfix glue habit. And to think they called it the Golden Age. Anyhow, at least Shakespeare lasted the test of time, as I’m not sure Facebook and Twitter will be inspiring playwrights in 400 years time. Social Media Week (see G9) includes lots of events for technophobes who don’t know their trolling from their tagging. And don’t forget children’s half-term (see G9), which either occurs in Week 7 or 8, depending on which council you live in. Shakespeare wouldn’t have liked it as half his cast would have had the week off. Unless, of course, he was prepared to improvise.

If they were Shakespeare’s sisters, they’d say “Stay” if they knew how long the bard had before he would shuffle off this mortal coil

Shakespeare’s Women

Krudttønden, Serridslevvej 2, Cph Ø; starts Wed, ends March 23, performances Mon-Fri 20:00, Sat 17:00; www. ACTING, in Shakespeare’s time, was a strictly male affair. An all boys’ club. For an Elizabethan woman to exhibit herself in public, not to mention on stage, was unseemly, immoral and highly indecent. Even the most feminine and romantic role of Juliet Capulet, one of Shakespeare’s most renowned female characters, was played by a cross-dressing boy. Ironically, this form of gender bias served to challenge the boundaries of restrictive gender roles. It raised the issue of whether being accepted as a man or woman lies in the performance of gender. At the same time, Shakespeare dramatised many faces of womanhood, not just a delicate modest one. His female characters often rebelled against a social structure largely determined by men. How did Shakespeare actually come to write what was his last play – no, not The Tempest, but The Two Noble Kinsmen, a play published posthumously that he co-wrote with Jacobean playwright John Fletcher – and how were his female characters involved? This is the mystery Barry McKenna and Ian Burns creatively clarify in their upcoming production, Shakespeare’s Women. The piece will be the continuation of an experiment that director Barry McKenna started in 2008 with his award-winning Flammens

Performance Carmen

Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; ends March 20, performances Fri 19:00, Mar 3 (15:00), Mar 6 (19:30), Mar 11 (19:30), Mar 14 (19:30), Mar 20 (19:30); tickets: 125895kr,, 3369 6969; 225 mins with intermission; sung in French with Danish supertitles This particular production of Carmen by Scottish director David McVicar premiered at the Royal Danish Theatre three years ago and now it’s back to lift your spirits during the dull, dreary winter. Georges Bizet’s classic opera is full of steamy Spanish passion, eroticism, raucous stage scenes and familiar songs that will have you swaying on your haunches. CS

SHAKESPEARE’S WOMEN, ACT ONE, SCENE ONE SHAKESPEARE: The women, the women, it’s all about the women. (He scribbles his first words on the paper enthusiastically) SHAKESPEARE: The Two Noble Kinsmen … poxy title … enter … three queens dressed in black (He stops short and stares off into space, not a thought in his head) SHAKESPEARE: The well is run dry of the waters of inspiration. In ‘The Tempest’ I used up the last rivulets of my poetic heart and soul.

Muse, which focused primarily on the words and situations of Shakespeare, leaving elaborate costumes and settings aside. Shakespeare Unplugged, last year’s production, which was co-written by Burns and McKenna, created an even more unique theatre experience in which audience members were invited onstage to take an active role as Shakespearean characters. This year’s piece, Shakespeare’s Women, explores Shakespeare’s own artistic struggles. Shakespeare’s Women opens shortly after the devastating fire on 29 June 1613 in the Globe Theatre, which went up in flames after a cannon was fired for special effects during a performance of Henry VIII. Shakespeare, having retired to his hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon, is ushered back to London to write a play for the reopening of his theatre. He lives at The Elephant on the South Bank, a pub surrounded by brothels, other pubs, and the executioner’s square. He attempts to make Chaucer’s The Knight’s Tale from The Canturbury Tales his own, turning to his earlier plays and previous female creations for inspiration, yet he himself is burnt out.

The Devils of Loudun

Store Scene, Ekvipagemestervej 10, Cph K; starts Tue, ends March 26, performances at 20:00 (unless stated) on Feb 27, March 5, March 12, March 19, March 24 (15:00), March 26; tickets 125-895kr; 120 mins without intermission; English with Danish subs Krzysztof Penderecki, who is best known for writing creepy atmospheric music for films like The Exorcist and The Shining, wrote this eerie opera as a protest against the repression of the Poles during the communist era. Based on Aldous Huxley’s novel, Penderecki swaps communism fervour for 17th century religious fanaticism, telling the story of a priest accused of violating several nuns. Arranged by the KGL’s former artistic director Keith Warner, it is a sinister, unforgettable opera. BH

“Records of Shakespeare’s life are hard to come by and we thought it would be fun to try and put ourselves in his shoes,” writes Burns, who himself will be playing Shakespeare. “The task of writing anything under pressure is something any writer recognises. We hope that our play will give a little insight as to what might have happened in London in March 1614.” Shakespeare experiences visions of notable female characters from his previous works, which pushes him to create yet again. These women, including Ophelia, Cleopatra, Perdita, and Juliet, answer Shakespeare’s queries throughout his writing of The Two Noble Kinsmen. His nurse from Stratford − who cares for him throughout his battle with a serious illness, likely syphilis − also encourages and guides him through his quest for the comedy and magic that once came easily. This 75-minute That Theatre Company production plays on memory and imagination. It will leave Shakespeare enthusiasts scrambling to place references from a plethora of Shakespeare’s works and leave lovers of the English language properly satisfied.

Cirque du Soleil: Alegría

Forum, Julius Thomsens Plads 1, Frederiksberg; ends Feb 24, performances TueThu 20:00, Fri 17:00 & 21:00, Sat 16:00 & 20:00, Sun 15:00 & 19:00; tickets 465-665kr,; www. High on the buzz of starring in an upcoming 3D film by James Cameron, Cirque du Soleil’s collection of circus artists and theatre performers bring you Alegría. A baroque-inspired celebration of youth, Alegría means joyful in Spanish and its evolving fantasy universe is aptly inhabited by minstrels, beggars, king’s fools, elderly aristocrats, children and clowns. The company delivers all the expected circus tricks – synchronised trapeze, fire and knife dancing, contortion routines and the Mongolian art of hand balancing – but with added class. VE




Gamle Scene, Kongens Nytorv, Cph K; starts Fri, ends March 1, performances on Sat, Tue, Wed, Feb 22, Feb 23, Feb 26, Feb 27, Feb 28, March 1; tickets 200kr; duration: 125 mins; For just 200 kroner, you get to see two short ballets (José Limons’s macho Native American stomp The Unsung and Wayne McGregor’s acrobatic Chroma) and excerpts from La Bayadere, which is returning in March after a winter break. Given that all the seats are the same price – from the stalls to the galleries – you might snatch a couple of seats that would normally set you back more than 1,000 kroner. The programme, back for a third successive year, is well-chosen to both introduce novices to the ballet and please regular ballet-goers. BH



15 - 21 February 2013 KORE-A-MOVES

Dansehallerne, Pasteursvej 20, Cph V; starts tonight (Thu Feb 14), ends Sat, performances at 20:00; tickets: adults 130kr, children 60kr,; www. GIVEN THE inordinate and virtually inexplicable amount of time devoted to the global phenomenon that is Gangnam style, you could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that the now ubiquitous dance moves made legendary by Psy are representative of Korean dance. Thankfully this is not the case: Korea is a happening country, as the Korean mini dance festival KORE A MOVES will demonstrate over three days of contemporary dance from 14-16 February at Dansehallerne in the burgeoning artistic corner of Carlsberg. Sungsoo Ahn, a graduate of the Juilliard School in New York, founded the dance company Sungsoo Ahn Pickup Group in 1991. Originally the group consisted of dancers from New York, but since 1998, Sungsoo Ahn has based the troupe in Korea. The group skillfully blends techniques from ballet and hip-hop. This is reflected in its unique make-up: an eclectic mixture of dance tal-

ent springing from traditional dance/ballet and backing dancers for Korean pop stars. Ahn compares this diversity with a composer combining different instruments to create a beautiful soundtrack. The element of ballet is a core feature of Ahn’s choreography. He believes that ballet has a yin-yang that promotes a balance between body and mind, allowing dancers to move intuitively. The troupe will be performing Rose: The rite of spring to the music of Igor Stravinsky. In this dance piece, gender roles are challenged as a group of women engage in a circular dance to find ‘a chosen one’ − the ideal man to be sacrificed as part of the ritual worship of the earth. For this piece, the company has been supplemented with hiphop dancers to represent the power and energy of masculinity. The Ahn Soo Young Dance Project has been touring internationally since 2007. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is reconstructed by Ahn from its classic ballet roots into a vibrant universe of hip-hop and contemporary dance. The graceful swans become homeless ones, grooving through a dreary urban landscape. These two performances start at 20:00 on Thursday and Friday. The Thursday show will be followed by a chance to discuss the performance with the

Somebody give these virgins a copy of the Kama Sutra − they clearly don’t know what they’re doing

artists. The Friday shows will be preceded by a talk at 17:00, looking at contemporary dance trends in Korea, and the country itself. On Saturday, the doors open to a Young Choreographers Night with three performances in one programme. Founded in 2007, the Goblin Party want to bewitch, play

tricks and bedazzle – all members of the troupe have the chance to work as both a choreographer and dancer so, in that way, the company has no definite leader. The piece I GO is the brainchild of Jin-Ho Lin, who got the idea while working as a funeral coach to explore the dilemmas and mysteries of death.

EDX2, led by choreographer Lee In-Soo, presents WHAT WE’VE LOST, which looks at the themes of fantasy and reality of memories through a blend of hip-hop and modern dance to create a diverse mosaic of body movement. Suksoon Jung’s Project S presents the short piece FOR WHOM 2.0, which revolves

around directions and the illusions of moving forwards. This three-day sample of what Korean choreographers and dancers have to offer in the way of contemporary dance is yet another inspiring addition to the Dansehallerne programme.

15 - 21 February 2013

A good day to let the whole franchise die out DAVE SMITH

A Good Day to Die Hard (15)

Dir: John Moore; US action/crime, 2013, 97 mins; Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Sebastian Koch, Cole Hauser Premiered February 14 Playing nationwide


RUCE WILLIS, presumably due to a clause in his contract with the Devil in which he gave up his hair, is returning as New York cop John McClane for a fifth time to battle evil terrorists. In this, the latest chapter of the seemingly never-ending series, McClane heads to Moscow to rescue his sonJack (Jai Courtney), who is charged with murder and set to appear in court. McClane is unaware, however, that his son is working as a CIA operative, and in fact committed the crime in order to gain access to political prisoner and potential snitch Yuri Komarov (Sebastian Koch). McClane’s arrival conveniently coincides with both Jack’s hearing and an attempt on Komarov’s life, and Jack’s subsequent attempts to smuggle him out of Russia. Only minutes into the McClane family reunion, McClane Sr, Jack and Komarov all find themselves fleeing a heavily-armed gang pursuing Komarov, who are hoping to retrieve a dossier that could incriminate their boss. But against all the odds ... With the first Die Hard now firmly anchored into the minds of film fanatics as the pinnacle of action cinema, opinions vary as to which of the sequels – if any – actually hold a candle to the original. It is worth noting that John McTiernan, director of the first two films, abandoned the franchise in 1995 after Die Hard with a Vengeance – and for good reason, it seems. Each of the subsequent follow-ups to the 1998 original have

Willis will have to take up drinking again in order to get over this flop of a film

paled in comparison to the first. Die Hard with a Vengeance boasted a few merits, but this instalment has lost feeling of it being a Die Hard film. Len Wiseman unwisely fell victim to the same phenomenon with Live Free or Die Hard, taking the action across the entire Eastern seaboard in a war against a cyber terrorist hell-bent on holding the country at ransom. Aspects of each sequel work on some levels, but no longer share anything in common with the first film. A Good Day to Die Hard only exacerbates this issue further. Willis’s McClane has devolved

almost beyond recognition. By now, he’s had to accept the fact that the world has changed, and the methods he employed in the late ‘80s will no longer suffice to save the day. He’s developed from a lovable black sheep into a deranged sociopath, for whom it’s a tall order to function normally in the everyday world. When he finally does find Jack in Moscow, his son unsurprisingly wants nothing to do with him. Much of the film’s shortcomings can be undoubtedly attributed to scriptwriter Skip Woods (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The A-Team), but in

truth, Willis himself isn’t blameless, either. After two decades as the face of the franchise, Willis should at least have set the standards higher, as the rest of the cast can do little to help. Courtney’s Jack is far too lacking in complexity to hold any clout as a hero, and Koch, known for his roles in The Lives of Others and Black Book, can only hint at his underlying talent with a flimsy character and wafer-thin script. Coarse and monotonous where its predecessors were clever and complex – where are the charming British villains pretending to be Germans? – it’s

no exaggeration to call A Good Day to Die Hard the worst film of the lot. It struggles to entertain or evoke a reaction even on a basic level. Perhaps most worrisome of all is the knowledge that the suffering is far from over and that the franchise will continue. As the title of this instalment suggests, perhaps Willis has actually deemed it a good day to die – and is actually willing himself to do so in letting the franchise live on. If that’s the case, he’s on exactly the right track with this film. Because as hard as it may be, Bruce, it’s time to die. Please try harder.

This witch-hunt is a grim fairy tale, alright Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (15) Dir: Tommy Wirkola; US action/ adventure, 2013, 88 mins; Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton, Famke Janssen, Zoe Bell, Peter Stormare Premiered February 7 Playing nationwide

T With two Oscar nominations to his name, Renner must be wondering how he ended up as Hansel on the hunt

HE IDEA is [that Hansel & Gretel have] grown up and they hunt witches,” a producer explained. “It’s a hybrid sort of old-timey feeling, yet there’s pump-action shotguns. Modern technology, but in an old style. We heard it and we were just like: ‘That’s a freakin’ franchise! You could make three of those!’”

To which this reviewer can only say: what a depressing thought. The premise may be potentially legitimate. The storyline adds depth to the Brothers Grimm’s concise original. And reaching deep for praise, I even found something to like about the film’s solitary troll who provides a nice variation to the endless swarms of Halloween-y witches who beset the plot. Having said all that, I really don’t know how to interest a viewer in this clunky, selfsatisfied slice of CGI and 3Denhanced horror comedy. To be fair, I was never the film’s target audience. But that’s because I happen to like my mashed-up entertainment done with just

a touch of intelligence – that’s reasonable. Simply imagining Hansel and Gretel (Renner and Arterton, respectively) 15 years later as self-ordained vigilantes out for witch blood is not enough, although I did find it an inspired touch that Hansel has contracted diabetes from eating too much candy back at the witch’s place. It’s at least refreshing to see a stereotypical hero embarrassed by his insulin injections. Norwegian writer-director Tommy Wirkola gained some notoriety with the cult Nazi zombie pic Dead Snow in 2008. This, his first Hollywood outing, is most of all a star vehicle for the sombre Renner (The Bourne Legacy and Avengers) and the

fetching Arterton. Sleepwalking through the motions as tough, sexy icons of medieval bounty hunting, they have their work cut out for them when they’re commissioned to rescue several children kidnapped by witches, who unfortunately are less scary due to their familiar cartoonish quality. Weapon aficionados will appreciate the gory climax, which is about as plausible a story as the nude scenes in which Hansel goes skinny-dipping with a star-struck, well-endowed ‘white witch’. In terms of romance, sister Gretel is less fortunate. She only manages to seduce a geeky teenager and an emasculated troll. KASPER R GULDBERG



15 - 21 February 2013

Book Your Tickets Zero Dark Thirty (15) Dir: Kathryn Bigelow; US action/drama, 2012, 157 mins; Jessica Chastain, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, James Gandolfini, Mark Strong, Chris Pratt The most unnerving, brilliantly acted thriller of the year, Zero Dark Thirty boasts an impressive inventory of ferocious visuals, an endlessly mesmerising performance from actress Jessica Chastain and a script that mercurially bulldozes any narrative clichés and instead offers punchy, naturalistically delivered political dialogue. Remorseless and torturous the film may be, but you won’t be able to stop watching. LR

The Master (11) Dir: Paul Thomas Anderson; US drama, 2012, 137 mins; Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Laura Dern The Master is one of the richest, most visually arresting and intellectually engaging films of recent times. While there are unmistakable references to scientology, the film is, at its core, universally applicable as a study in the exploitation of vulnerable peoples and the cyclical nature of subjugation. The film’s gorgeous Technicolor hues and flawlessly nuanced performances create an experience that will likely stay with you for a long time. MW

Django Unchained (15) Searching for Sugar Man (15) Dir: Quentin Tarantino; US action/drama/western, 2012, 165 mins; Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, Samuel L Jackson Tarantino’s eagerly anticipated pastiche of the western epic is a bold, throbbing, exuberantly crafted piece of work – one that rattles cages with a vengeance. The film manages to conduct a joyride through old Dixie while simultaneously building up to a passionate climax steeped in heartbreaking romance and pacifistic, moral indignation. And while the Tarantino trademarks are aplenty, the film doesn’t buckle under their weight. KG

The Impossible (15) Dir: Juan Antonio Bayona; Spa drama/disaster, 2012, 114 mins; Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts, Tom Holland, Samuel Joslin The Impossible, based on the real-life experiences of a family caught in the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, rarely lets up the pace. It is sometimes hard to watch as the characters are severely and relentlessly battered by the water and the all-encompassing hopelessness that follows after the wave hits. The work pays off tenfold, resulting in a tough realism that no doubt informs the performances and the emotional clout of the entire film. See this, and then go and hug your kids. MW

Dir: Malik Bendjelloul; Swe/ US/SA doc, 2012, 86 mins If you disappear into obscurity after an undistinguished music career, you can always take pride in the fact that halfway across the world a nation is being inspired by your music to start a revolution against a racist oppressive regime. That’s at least what happened in the case of US ‘70s rocker Rodriguez, who was a hero to many during the South African struggle against apartheid. Swedish filmmaker Bendjelloul follows two South African fans as they try to find out what happened to their hero, and the result is as compelling as a real-life detective story. LL

Avoid like the Plague Gangster Squad (15) Dir: Ruben Fleischer; US action/crime, 2013 113 mins; Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte This film is little more than a weak-wristed remake of Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables, offering such a mirror-image set of the characters that one feels genuinely offended by the lack of effort. Furthermore, Gangster Squad doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up: on the one hand highly stylised and precise, it also possesses allusions to pulp and pastiche. Untouchable is certainly a fine way of regarding the film, but if you do insist, a barge pole is highly recommended. AS

Also Playing Warm Bodies (11) Dir: Jonathan Levine; US romcom/horror, 2013, 98 mins; Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, Analeigh Tipton, Dave Franco, John Malkovich If you were expecting a stereotypical zombie film, you won’t find it in Warm Bodies, but you will instead find a romantic comedy. The film attempts to be a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, and merely substitutes a zombie for Romeo. Ironically, for a genre that is usually terrifying, Warm Bodies isn’t actually scary, and the premise of the film is ridiculous. The film attempts humour, but only succeeds at monotony and bland characters. LD

Wreck-It Ralph (7) Dir: Rich Moore; US animation/adventure, 2012, 165 mins; John C Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch When video-game villain Ralph decides he wants to be a hero instead, he sets out on a quest to rebel against his role, bringing chaos to his entire arcade in the process. Managing to be simultaneously sweet, sassy and only a tiny bit tiresome, Wreck-it Ralph is nostalgia in animated form. However, much of the film’s humour relies entirely on the nostalgia of games released in the 1980s and 90s, thereby alienating those viewers who don’t recognise the reference points. JH

Life of Pi (11)

Dir: Steven Spielberg; US drama, 2013, 150 mins; Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader Lincoln is a well-formed and morally ambiguous study of character, principle and politics. It is often overly nostalgic about history, but confidently and even humourously refuses to shy away from the contradictions of its subject matter, and gratefully Spielberg has chosen collaborators who rise to the challenge of offering a contemporary lesson in the ways we have shaped our times, for better or worse. AS

Dir: Ang Lee; US Adventure/ drama, 2012, 130 mins; Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Gerard Depardieu, Rafe Spall, Tabu This beautiful adventure movie is an absolute must-see, even if the plot stinks. It’s a bottomless box of visual delights: colours have never been so vivid. But although writer David Magee does his best to cloak a very corny plot, elements of the baggy original novel still creep in. Despite the narrative compromise, the film is a much-needed bit of heart-warming magic during the frosty season. LR

Beasts of the Southern Wild (11)

The Hobbit (11)

Dir: Benh Zeitlin; US drama/ fantasy, 2012, 94 mins; Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easterly, Lowell Landes Based on the play Juicy and Delicious by Lucy Alibar, this film adaptation is essentially a charming children’s coming-ofage story – a moralistic fairy tale told through magical realism. Protagonist Hushpuppy’s dedication to her father is as heartbreakingly beautiful as young Wallis’s perfectly cast face, but the film’s occasional dabbling in sentimentality, along with an overbearing score and an overreliance on voiceovers prevents the film from achieving the transcendence it aims for. MW

Dir: Peter Jackson; US/New Zealand Adventure/Fantasy, 2012, 169 mins; Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Hugo Weaving The grandiloquence of the film will please the fanatics, but leave those on the fence potentially nauseous. Although some of the performances impress, the storyline is flabby, and the writers struggle to hatch a consistently entertaining story to meet the film’s excessive length. LR

Exorcising Marley’s ghost: Papa’s son, the country singer Bob Marley Tribute: Ky Mani Marley

Pumpehuset Studiestræde 52, Cph V; Fri 20:00; Tickets: 270kr;



OB MARLEY is turning 68! Well, he would have been, if he were still alive. But that shouldn’t stop Denmark’s rastafari from lighting up ... the candles on his cake. And not only is Pumpehuset happy to accommodate any soul brothers who are keen to pay tribute to the heralded pioneer of reggae music, but his son Ky Mani Marley will be there as well. Even though there seems to be an infinite number of Marley offspring who have popped up with a one-hit wonder before disappearing back into the haze, to actually have a legitimate Marley present is a rare privilege. Because the truth is, while Bob may have passed on, his 13 children have all been blessed with their father’s musical gift, whether they want it or not. “I never wanted to be a musician,” Mani told Reggae Music Review. “But I was born to be one. It was not a choice. It was my destiny.” Perhaps not the most original line, but what makes Mani different from the Marley siblings is that he does not feel exclusively bound to the rasta scene – a fact that this country music-loving brother is keen to point out. “I hate being labelled as just a reggae artist,” Mani said. “Just because my last name is Marley, everyone seems to expect me to sing reggae. That’s so minimal to my capabilities and the work that I do.”

And he has by no means stuck to the family stereotype. You can find all sorts of musical genres within Mani’s music. The Spanish guitar in ‘Rudeboy’, the rock-steady style in ‘Dear Dad’ and hip-hop rhymes in his verses are clear indications of Mani’s musical diversity. That … and touring with Van Halen. “The biggest obstacle in my life was to come out of that reggae box I was placed in,” Mani explained. “The fact is – I just love music, whether it’s Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles or Alicia Keys.” Surprised? Well, considering that Mani’s favourite films include the likes of The Last Samurai, The Gladiator and The Notebook, you probably shouldn’t be. But then again, what’s really in a name? Not even Papa Marley was sure. “Bob Marley isn’t my name,” he was once quoted as saying. “I don’t even know my name yet.” But what you can be sure of is a great concert in tribute to the big man, complete with a workshop on Marley’s life, a seminar on rastafari, local reggae music, special guest artists with light show effects and, of course, the headline act of Ky Mani Marley. Mani will be the first to tell you that he is musically nothing like the rest of the Marley siblings. But what you will see is a slightly experimental take on reggae that encompasses all forms of music rather than just one. Bob Marley once said that a “man is a universe within himself ”. So why don’t you join in with Mani and find the true colours within your own nebula this Friday. BJARKE SMITH-MEYER

The Darkness

Amager Bio, Øresundsvej 6, Cph S; 21:00; 325kr It was at the beginning of 2003 that this glam-rock band emerged, sending the whole of England into rapture with their debut Permission to Land (2003). The band that Ricky Gervais once hailed as “the best band in Britain” had the nation wrapped around their fingers on the back of their refreshing pop cocktail of ACDC rock and glittery bodysuits and lightning-bolt headbands. Since then the group have experienced something of a fall from grace. Although they were more than a flash in the pan, they were still novelty act. No matter how entertaining Hot Cakes (2012) is, nothing will bring back their previous fame.

Store Vega; 21:00; sold out The Danish quintet distance themselves from the generic indie pop scene with a more daring project focusing on experimental instrumental compositions. Every facet of their studio recordings are brought to life in their stage performances. The inclusion of additional members, who perform as supporting members of the band, really serve to do the band’s music justice and give the audience a real concert. Getting hold of tickets may be a little tricky, however, so try getting on the waiting list for a chance to get in come Sunday.

2 x Duo: Mads Vinding/ Jesper Lundgaard & Mette Juul/Heine Hansen

CPH Jazzhouse, Niels Hemmingsensgade 10, Cph K; 20:00; 80kr Tonight’s showcase will be a veritably unique demonstration of pure jazz creativity courtesy of some of Denmark’s top jazz musicians. Traditionally, the first duo are both stellar bassists, rarely paired together due to their marked similarities. Joining the pair will be another duo in the form of vocalist Mette Juul and acclaimed pianist Jesper Lundgaard of the muchpraised Ginman/Blachman jazz collective. The premise of easy listening, elegant and soft jazz, they aim to capture the paragon of soothing coffee-house tunes.

Local Natives

Store Vega; 21:00; sold out Originally from Los Angeles, the five-bit group draw from the craft of Grizzly Bear, Broken Social Scene and Fleet Foxes. Their music pivots on the authenticity of atmosphere and the rapaciously sharp dynamism each single creates, which is true for most of their tracks. Hummingbird (2012) gained a healthy rating of 8.1 on Pitchfork, presumably scoring stars for its consistency in achieving that authenticity. This is the biggest gig in town this week and although tickets have already officially sold out, there’s no harm in trying your luck on the online ticket forums.

Thanks to Wafande, Natasja’s legacy lives on Review Wafande


February 9 Lille Vega


anish Dancehall, a music genre that has rocketed to popularity over the last several years, is currently being steered by the soonto-be-household names Raske Penge, Klumben, Top Gunn and the stars of Saturday night’s soldout Lille Vega show, Wafande and Kaka. When the iconic Natasja Saad passed away tragically in 2007, many wondered if her flourishing reggae legacy would simply fizzle out into the narrative of Danish music history, or whether it would continue to live on. But six years on, Danish dancehall is at an all-time high, vying for airplay on radio stations and making its way into festivals and concert venues with aplomb, as last night’s entertainment at Vega proved.

It took a while to get the ball rolling, as Bikstok Røgsystem’s frontman PharPhar gave a short, comical intro for Kaka who ran on stage beanie-clad and content. The eager crowd responded well to Kaka’s wellpaced lyrics over a catchy beat and had scarcely begun to enjoy the show, three songs in, when the show’s main act Wafande took to the stage. Performing as if the temperature were up in the high 20s on a summer day, Wafande was quick off the mark, delivering a live version of his charged ‘Lang Vej Hjemme’ (Long way home). The tune, an emotional reflection on cultural identity, ultimately sounds better on a CD at home than it does live, but it still had a powerful effect on the crowd, who sang wittily along to its anti-Dansk Folkeparti/ Pia K lyrics. This was followed by the merry ‘Kom ned til Vandet,’ (Come down to the water), a casual tribute to summer in Denmark that radiated through Lille Vega.

Loppen, Sydområdet 4B, Cph K; 21:00; 50kr This American band’s futuristic echoes swell with references to the ‘80s. A clash of ‘80s punk rock, rough-lined New York graffiti and The Velvet Underground’s hazy perception of the world, the Cosmonauts have found themselves marooned somewhere between the ‘60s and the 21st century: obliviously delivering their material to a generation now hooked on electric cigarettes and tucking knee length socks into their high heels. Everything Lou Reed could have ever hoped for in modern rock, the Cosmonauts have made available a handful of EPs on their page.

Nightlife Tobias Winberg

Drone, Nørrebrogade 184, Cph N; Fri 22:00; free adm Just a few minutes from Sankt Hans Torv on Nørrebrogade, Drone bar attracts a large night crowd from all over town every week – but especially on Fridays. Tonight, Copenhagenbred DJ Tobias Winberg will be playing a set of the latest rock ‘n’ roll, alternative and electro tunes just downstairs from the main bar. Wafande’s got a powerful voice for a skinny wee man

With his main tracks seemingly exhausted in the opening phase of the show, Wafande geared down and sung a few less popular numbers that gave the audience a chance to breathe, before Kaka joined him on stage to somewhat reignite the show. Things livened up towards the end with a French retake of Sting’s iconic ‘Englishman in New York’ before ‘Giv mig et smil’ (give me a smile) rounded things off appropriately.

Having already performed earlier in the day at the same venue to a concert hall full of kids, Wafande was still sharp and cheerful come evening. If Saturday night is anything to go by, he looks set to challenge the airplay dominion of pop and R&B in Denmark. Thanks to him, Natasja’s spirit lives on six years after that tragic evening in Jamaica. Allan Mutuku-Kortbæk

Bo-Bi Bar

Klareboderne 14, Cph K; 20:00; free adm Playing old records and serving up a host of ales and bitters, Bo-Bi Bar is one of the inner city’s few remaining relics. As old photographs on the walls attest, the bar has remained practically unchanged since the ‘50s. Bo-Bi is the ideal place in town to set the tone for a night out at the Jazzhouse, merely a stone’s throw away. Just be careful not to answer your mobile phone or take out a camera indoors: it’s an in-house rule that the owners strictly enforce.

Maps & Atlases

Loppen, Sydområdet 4B, Cph K; 21:00; 95kr Hailing from Chicago, the eccentric four-bit boy band tick all the boxes, commercially merging math-rock elements with folk aspects. Their experiments often begin with Dave Davison’s unusual vocal style, who sounds uncannily similar to Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend. The group’s complex layered rhythms then disorientate, enliven and awaken the listener with each beat. Creatively criss-crossing indie and pop trends, Maps & Atlases are definitely on the right path with their new record, Beware and Be Grateful (2012), topping their debut released two years prior. Daniel van der Noon

Vibes Apotek

Ydunsgade 5, Cph N; Sat 22:00; free adm Serving 35kr cocktails that claim to remedy ailments such as writer’s block, boredom, an aching heart and loneliness in the most kitschy of venues, Vibes Apotek is not yet swamped by tourists or the wrong kind of folk. It’s a classy, original yet cheap beginning for a night out on the town and although there’s not much of a dancefloor – merely three sqm in front of the bar – you can always move some shapes on the forecourt.


Knabrostræde 3, Cph K; Sat 23:00; adm 100kr Even though the club only opens its door on Saturdays, its varied DJ line-up play progressive psy, psychedelic and fullon, making sure that the party is going strong till the early morning. The club do have an entrance fee, but it includes free beer and soda all night.

15 - 21 February 2013


Beat winter fatigue with an injection of French art THE LAST MONTH of Danish winter calls for an injection of colour and light. Here is a guide to a string of French masterpieces in and around Copenhagen. Dive into paintings of historical scenes, nudes and landscapes or walk through gardens reminiscent of the Château de Versailles in France. Hopefully the playful, powerful shapes and colours will be enough to sustain you until spring. French Art 1900-1930 The National Gallery of Art, Sølvgade 48-50, Cph K; Permanent exhibition At The National Gallery of Art you will find one of the world’s finest collections of Matisse works along with rarely exhibited, experimental and provocative works by Picasso, Braque, Modigliani and Derain. At the exhibition you can see very different works by the same artists. This is because many of the artists tried out different expressions and techniques. What these works have in common is that they received overwhelming attention from contemporary media, often in the form of raging criticism, for their distinctive vision of what modern art should look like. At the exhibition you can see Matisse’s paper cut ‘Zulma’, which is only very rarely exhibited.

The impressionists’ Paris Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Dantes Plads 7, 1556 Cph V; ends April 30 The collection of French paintings at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek are masterpieces from one of the most radical and visionary periods of the history of painting – from 1850 to the early 20th century. Paintings and sculptures tell the story of new terms of art and life in a period when artists united in their desire to change the practical and aesthetic terms of painting. Courbet, Daumier, Delacroix, Degas, Manet, Sisley, Renoir, Monet, Gauguin and van Gogh are some of the artists represented in this beautiful collection. A taste of the Sun King’s pomp and circumstance Museum of National History, Frederiksborg Castle, Hillerød North of Copenhagen in Hillerød, you will find the Danish equivalent of Louis XIV of France’s magnificent castle Château de Versailles. Frederiksborg Castle is the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. It is extremely lavishly decorated and was brought into the world to highlight the power of the Danish Sun King, Christian IV and impress other European monarchs. The surrounding gardens, laid out in carefully symmetrical baroque lines and romantic landscape design, are by themselves worth a visit.

A true Francophile’s collection Ordrupgaard, Vilvordevej 110, Charlottenlund; permanent exhibition The creator of Ordrupgaard, Wilhelm Hansen, was a true Francophile, who acquired all the art he could get his hands on through his business partners in France. He created a gallery on his own private property so that he could present the very best of French painting to the Danes. At the museum you will find an impressive collection of French Impressionism and Post-Impressionism, including works by Monet, Morisot and Pissaro, and there is ample opportunity to study everything from idyllic French farmhouses bathed in sunshine to rainy depictions of industrial progress.


Events ‘The Roads Around’ NEW Mini-Festival Karen Blixen Museum, Rungsted Strandvej 111, Rungsted Kyst; ends April 1; Wed-Fri 13:00-16:00, Sat & Sun 11:0016:00, closed Feb 23 & 24; 60kr; This ten-in-one deal at the Karen Blixen Museum will centre on the idea of achieving greatness – and self-awareness – late in life. Blixen herself did not attain fame until she was near 50, and the ten female artists featured in this show are all in similar stages of their lives. A wide variety of expression will be represented, from sound art by Katrine Ring to clothing design by Anne Damgaard. The rhetorician Barbara Læssøe Stephensen, sculptor Tina Maria Nielsen, author Janne Teller and five others will make this exhibition a journey into identity. Maybe you will question yours.

Kids Play LEGO NEW Architect for a Day Strandgade 27B, Cph K; Fri-Sun, 11:00-15:00; tickets: 60kr, under-3s free adm As part of the exhibition entitled In dialogue with the world, the Danish Architecture Center is hosting a workshop for both children and adults to take on a few of the challenges that architects face daily: How do you create a housing complex in the desert? A temporary school for nomads? A city in an arctic climate?

AA Glaspusterens Børn Teatret Zeppelin, Valdemarsgade 15, Cph V; ends Mar 13, performances Mon-Sat − times vary; adult tickets: 165kr, concessions: 105kr, under-25s: 95kr;; suitable for 7 years or above Written by celebrated Scandinavian children’s author Maria Gripe, Glaspusterens Børn tells the story of two siblings Klas and Klara, who are abducted and locked up in a gloomy house in Ønskeby.

Legoworld Bella Center, Center Boulevard 5, Cph S; open 16-19 Feb, 10:00-17:00; tickets 140kr, under 3s free adm; www. The amount of Lego sold in a year stretches five times around the world and the 4 billion Lego mini-figures now make up the world’s largest population group! There are plenty of activities based on the Lego characters and brands: you can sign up as a Lego fireman and heroically put out a fire, take a ride in the Legoland adventure cars, meet a real Lego designer and learn a trick or two, design your own personalised Lego brick, perfect your Lego-Jedi abilities, visit the Lego cinema or just wonder at Lego recreations in the architecture area. To make things easy, the organisers have helpfully arranged the activities into different age groups. This is sure to attract the crowds, so book early and let your kids have the chance to get their creative fingers clicking the bricks together. PS HC Andersen’s ‘Tællelyset’ Danish National Archives, Rigsdagsgaarden 9, Cph K; until March, 09:00-16:00; 3392 3310, Tællelyset, believed to be HC Andersen’s first ever fairytale, was recently discovered in a shuffle of papers at the National Archives.

LET’S FACE IT. Whether we like it or not, our lives are becoming increasingly controlled by the internet. From banking, to socialising, heck, even to reading The CPH Post’s InOut section, it’s all online for everyone to see. Instead of cowering in fear like a caveman, it’s about time we started embracing the boundless World Wide Web and put it to good use. Running simultaneously in ten major world cities from February 18-22, Copenhagen plays host to the annual Social Media Week. Sponsored by Nokia – the company made famous for “connecting people” – the five-day event will see world-renowned industry experts from companies such as Maersk and Microsoft coalesce with an expected 3,000 members of Joe Public, all to discuss how we can collaborate on social media platforms and use them for our individual, cultural and economic benefit. To really get the virtual ball rolling, each of the 76 events focuses on this year’s one global theme: ‘Open & Connected’. With the majority of the events held in English, internationals living across Scandinavia are encouraged to attend. Such an elaborate programme means that there really is something for everyone, from web-savvy executives looking to find out how companies can use Facebook as a customer service tool, to technophobes who think that Twitter (shameless plug: luke_richardson) is something only birds can do. Another reason you should attend is that it will cost you absolutely nothing. To secure your spot, all you have to do is sign up and register for the events you’re inter-

Okker Gokker Det Lille Teater, Lavendelstræde 5-7, Cph K; ends May 5, performances Tue-Sun − times vary; adult tickets: 120kr, concessions: 60kr, under-25s: 50kr,; suitable for 2–4 years This musical play is especially designed for the smallest members of the family. It’s full of old Danish rhymes, limericks and songs with plenty of visual aids to help captivate the audience, young and old alike. Lille Teater specialises in children’s pieces, and this play is designed to introduce Danish culture to the audience by performing old favourites, such as the stories of Okker Gokker and Bro Brille. BSM Medical Museion Medical Museion, Bredgade 62, Cph K; ends 22 Feb, open Mon-Fri and Sun 12:00-16:00 Tickets: adults 50kr, under16s: 30kr; www.museion. The Medical Museion is worth a visit if you have potential future doctors and surgeons at home between the ages of seven and 12, who are into all things grisly. How does it feel to have a real cranium in your hands and just how did they deal with a broken leg in days gone by? At the Medical Museion, you can learn about the workings of the body and it could be an interesting diversion combined with a trip to the queen’s residence and changing of the guard at Amalienborg. PS

ested in. But be quick, space is limited, and allocation for some events is already filling up. Scouring the impressive and lengthy schedule, here’s a list of some of the keynote speeches, panel discussions and freebar networking opportunities you’d be foolish to miss out on. Peer-to-peer: Twitter Republikken, Vesterbrogade 26, Cph V; Wed 17:30-18:30 Hosted by Danish communications specialists UNGKOM, this is one of four group sessions looking at how beginners get started with social media (others include Storify, LinkedIn and Instagram). Effectively, it’s ‘Twitter for dummies’, so head down and embrace the 140 characters, or less, phenomenon. 24syv Media Night Radio 24syn, Vester Farimagsgade 41, Cph V; Thu (21 Feb) 17:30- 23:00 Hosted by public service radio channel Radio24syv, this gala event will be a mixture of debate and entertainment, with Danish politicians, journalists, comedians and musicians meeting in one place to discuss why they’re so passionate about social media. Following the discussions, there will be an exclusive networking event. Don’t forget your Business eCards. Should you tell Facebook you’re stressed? Kforum, Gammel Kongevej 3E, Cph V; Thu (21 Feb) 14:00-16:00 A discussion about how to manage your digital identity, this seminar sees two social media authors, Trine-Maria and Pernille Tranberg, debate the potential possibilities and pitfalls of sharing too much on the web.

Klatreskoven Pasteursvej 10, Cph K; opens Sat, ends Sun, open 10:0018:00; tickets 75-150kr; www. The ever-expanding climbing and adventure playground in the Carlsberg grounds is the perfect place to let off steam. Ten metres up in the air between the trees you can climb, jump and abseil through four different courses differing degrees of difficulty. Helmets and harnesses are supplied and gloves are always a good idea during these frosty days. Book online at least a day before. PS Circus Museum Hovedporten 6, Hvidovre; ends Fri; adults: 50kr, children: free adm;; phone 3649 0030 to reserve tickets A little bit out of the way, but the number 1A bus takes you straight to the door of the Circus Museum. A new attraction is the old style flea circus that will have you scratching your head each day at 10:15, 11:45, 12:45 and 13:45. From 11:00 every day during the autumn holiday, Tonny the clown’s buffoonery and juggling will warm up budding young circus artistes of the future who can get a bit of instruction in trapeze, tightrope, juggling and other traditional activities. The museum itself is also well worth a visit as a glimpse into the history of Danish circus. PS

Old news if you’re not an old stick

Teens and Their Public Lives Berlingkse Media, Pilestræde 34, Cph K; Mon 13:00-16:00 Feel like you can’t communicate with your kids? Then this is the event for you! This web privacy seminar will look at how the younger generation adapt to new technologies so quickly, and what it is that they are sharing with the online world. Citizen Service Meets Social Media Komfo, Vestergade 29-31, Cph K; Tue 16:00-17:30 This potentially fiery event brings representatives from several Danish councils together with their citizens to discuss how online communications can help improve our neighbourhoods, or perhaps make them worse. Can’t make any of the events? Follow the whole thing online at and on Twitter using the hashtag #SMWCPH LUKE RICHARDSON

Water – a world of adventures Experimentarium, Tuborg Havnevej 7, Hellerup; open Mon-Fri 09:30-17:00, Tue 09:3021:00, Sat and Sun 11:00-17:00; under 2s free, age 3-11 105kr, adult 160kr, students 105kr; contact 3927 3333 or This water adventure features more than 50 activities and experiments. But don’t be afraid of getting your clothes wet as this is a “bone-dry ride through the wet element”. You get to fight the power of the sea, save someone who has fallen overboard from a ship and experience giant surf waves. MSØ Snuggle up at the flicks Reprise Teatret, Øverødvej 12, Holte; 4542 1026; www. Reprise Teatret is a cosy contrast to large modern cinemas. Among the historical furnishings and plush seating you’ll find row four has twin seats where kids can cuddle up. Like many cinemas, it has a weekly babybio showing for parents with babies. The soundtrack is often dwarfed by babies gurgling, but that’s fine if you’re watching The Hobbit. To find out what’s on visit for a list of all Danish cinemas with ratings and comments, and then book your tickets at – remember that ‘original tale’ means it has the original English, French etc soundtrack. HD

Tom Noddy’s Bubble Magic Experimentarium, Tuborg Havnevej 7, Hellerup; ends Feb 24, performances MonSun at 12:00, 13:00, 15:00, & 16:00; Tickets: under-12s: 108kr, over-12s: 165kr; www. Tom Noddy has a career that many children (and adults too for that matter) dream about: professional bubble blower. He has mastered the art of creating bubbles inside of bubbles, smoke bubbles, clear bubbles, clear bubbles inside of smoke bubbles, yin yang bubbles, and a variety of other enchanting bubble constructions. Noddy is considered the world expert on soap bubbles and the science behind them, and he dazzles his audiences with a combination of humor and skill. Noddy is performing at the Experimentarium every day of the week until Sunday February 24. Witness bubble-blowing like you’ve never seen before! AA DGI-byen Tietgensgade 65, Cph V; ends Sun; tickets for both swimming/ activities: adults 80kr, children 60kr; DGI-Byen in Vesterbro has simple and surefire activities such as swimming and bowling. During the winter holiday, kids can bounce on the world’s biggest inflatable pillow or try out the obstacle course. In the swimming pool itself there are extra activities such as diving for treasure and walking the plank. PS

T’S SNOWING again. For a brief few days at the start of February, I − in my naivety − thought the days were getting warmer, the month getting sunnier and the oppressive wind getting friendlier. The Danes just laughed at me: “You haven’t seen the real February yet.” They were right. More snow. But I’ve always been of the mindset that one shouldn’t fret about things they cannot change; it’ll drive you crazy. And, seeing as I just lost Mother Nature’s number, I really can’t do anything about the snow getting in my eyes while I bike into town. I guess I simply have to lower my expectations for a while. Now, a patch of blue sky can elevate my day infinitely. If the sun shines for five minutes, I’m as happy


as a clam and I can’t stop grinning. I still have about seven layers on, but at least it feels like my toes are thawing. Or maybe I’ll just step into Føtex and warm up the artificial way. It’s a helpful reminder that there are great things to do around the city during Wondercool to keep me from lying in bed all day, feeling miserable amid the grey. Dining Week is about to wrap up this Sunday, and it’s a steal to be dining on three-course meals at these restaurants for 200 kroner. I spent a freezing Tuesday evening with some friends at Café Kanalen and got fed the most delectable veal I’ve ever had. The Jason Moran show (see G13 for details) at the Copenhagen JazzHouse is a sure-fire winner and bound to fend off the freezing winds this Sunday. And maybe you could

stop by Café Retro for the free Trio Andromeda show on Friday (G15). If Mother Nature isn’t too cruel this weekend, I might go up to Louisiana and take advantage of the free Saturday Tour or go on the walk through Frederiksstaden on Sunday (G13). And if she decides to wreak havoc upon our sanity and send more snow our way, a hyggeligt brunch at DAC& Café sounds like the way to go (G14). I know I have to keep myself occupied if I don’t want to merely suffer through another month in Copenhagen. If I can’t change the weather, I have to adapt. The sun might peek out at some point from behind the sheet of slate that is now our sky. When it does, be sure to say hello. Until then, enjoy Wondercool and stay warm. AMY STRADA

Jason Moran, the 38-year-old jazz pianist from the United States, has received all sorts of honours and distinctions, including a MacArthur Foundation ‘Genius’ Grant, the triple crown of the 2011 Downbeat Magazine’s Critics Poll as Jazz Artist of the Year, Jazz Album of the Year, and Best Pianist, and being named the artistic advisor for jazz at the Kennedy Center and the resident artistic director at the San Francisco Jazz Festival. The man has undeniably made it. He’s an Ellington of his age. Yet, Moran is ill-equipped to rest on his laurels. He keeps on pushing the spectrum of music and artistry. “Artistically, I think

I am only hitting an early stride,’ Moran explains to InOut. “Each of the blessings I have been afforded with regard to collaborators and acclaim is a reflection of the village that raised me.” From his co-operation with choreographers philosophers and artists to his adventures in recorded sound; from holding dance parties based on the music of Fats Waller to playing while skateboarders perform on ramps set before the stage; and from writing his own compositions to exploring the music of Johannes Brahms, Duke Ellington, Leonard Bernstein, Nino Rota, Thelonious Monk, Gladys Knight, Billie Holiday and Afrika Bambaataa, Moran is an original – and every concert has the special feeling of a unique experience. Moran recognises the sanctity of each performance. ‘I think vulnerability with an audience is key,” he said. “If an audience feels like you will never make a mistake − well I wouldn’t know what to do with that

performer. The Bandwagon and I put a lot on the line, and we tend to think not only about the music but how to present it as well. Like performance art. Or theatre. When we walk on stage, I am aiming for consciousness about each element of the performance.” If you do not know or have not experienced the music of Jason Moran live, it is imperative that you take yourself to the finely refurbished hall of the Copenhagen Jazz House and see Vinter Jazz’s pre-eminent concert, performed by one of the art form’s foremost practitioners. Moran and his band the Bandwagon, Tarus Mateen (bass) and Nasheet Waits (drums), have been together for 13 years now, and they play with the expert understanding, improvisation and communication that only a relationship of that length could produce. Mateen has been the bassist of choice for many jazz artists as well as appearing in a who’s-who line-up of hip-hop,

reggae and pop stars. Waits, the son of jazz drummer Frederick Waits, serves as a superb sideman on a number of stellar jazz projects. Moran’s most recent album, 2010’s Ten, marked his eighth album as a bandleader – each album tends to show new sides of his imagination at play. He is currently recording an album of his Fats Waller dance hall music featuring Meshell N’degeocello among others. In addition, Moran has been a choice collaborator on many more albums, including his current stint in Charles Lloyd’s New Quartet and recordings with vocalist Cassandra Wilson. Moran has performed in Copenhagen eight times over the last ten years, and each experience has shown a courageous vision, bright virtuosity, and vibrant imagination. For jazz fans and music lovers alike, his appearance in town is an event that is not to be missed. JOHNNY NIEMANN

Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge and other less successful characters

15 - 21 February 2013


BBC Ent, Thu 22:00

FOR THE second time in barely a month, the same comic creation has wormed his way, as he is prone to doing, into our Top Pick selection. Sure, it’s a weak week, particularly following the barnstorming lineup last week (which included the debut of Breaking Bad, returning with the entire second season − TV2 Zulu, Sun 10:15), but Norwich’s finest would be worthy of this accolade most weeks, and once again he delivers with aplomb in Steve Coogan as Alan Partridge and other less successful characters (BBC Ent, Thu 22:00), a stand-up tour of the UK that his creator embarked on in 2008 with a knowing reference to how poorly some of his other characters have been received. Don’t worry, the chaff (think cabaret singer Tony Ferrino) isn’t

here, but the 90-minute show is still a game of two halves, according to reviewers on UK comedy site Chortle, with only the student-hating Paul Calf giving Alan a run for his money in the laughter stakes. “Arrive in the interval and you’ll have a markedly better experience than those who endure the first half, in which the once-brilliant creations either tread water, or sink miserably,” observed one reviewer. Sounds worth tuning in for, with perhaps a book on your lap just in case. Louis Theroux: Twilight of the porn stars (DR2, Thu 21:05), on the other hand, sounds like an arduous affair, but isn’t that often the way with good docs? Theroux has matured over the years, and is certainly less manipulative than he used to be as he explores how porn

is suffering under the deluge of free content on the web. Elsewhere, the first episode of David Attenborough’s new six-part series Africa (SV2, Sun 19:00) tackles the Kalahiri; Murder in the Mediterranean (BBC World, Fri 20:30, Sat 16:30 or Sun 22:30) investigates why Corsica has the BBC Ent, Thu 22:00 Steve Coogan evening highest murder rate in Europe; Idol (BBC World, Sat 20:10 or Sun 15:10) follows the exploits of a girl band in Korea, the home of Psy; there’s a weekend of FA Cup action to look forward to on K6; and it’s a good week for new films, including Centurion (TV2, Fri 23:05), Easy A (TV3, Sun 21:00), Hot Tub Machine (TV2 Zulu, Thu 20:55), Thor (TV3 Plus, Thu 23:40) and True Grit.
