We are thrilled Curve Associate Artis t Akram Khan will be back to LE1 this autumn. Akra m is one of the foremost choreographers and artist s of his generation and we are delighted to be co-producing his latest production, XENOS. This mark s Akram’s final performance as a dancer and prom ises to be a profound and earth-shattering swan song. As the only venue in England outside of London to be presenting the piece, XENOS is certa inly not to be missed if you enjoy contemporary danc e. Another incredible dance piece not to be miss ed is Matthew Bourne’s award-winning Swan Lake , which will return to Curve this October – an extra matinee has been added due to popular demand, so get your tickets quick! In addition to our Made at Curve dance and musicals, we continue to produce new and established dramas. This autumn we will produce the world premiere of Riaz Khan’s Memoirs of an Asian Football Casual. A Made at Curve production based on Riaz’s recollection of his days as a football hooligan in Leicester’s notorious Baby Squad, the gang that crossed racial divides and created an unexpected utopia in a fast-changing city. Curve Associate Artist Dougal Irvine has adapted this incre dible slice of Leicester life for our stage. Filled with rough heart and humour, join us as we transform our Studio Theatre into the Filbert Street terraces. Following this, next year we will work with our friends at Jonathan Church Productions and Regent’s Park Theatre to produce and bring back the critically acclaimed To Kill A Mockingbird. However, before Harper Lee’s classic arrives, there’s plenty of touring drama to enjoy inclu ding Katori Hall’s Olivier Award-winning play The Mountaintop playing this autumn – a profoundly moving play celebrating the last night of the grea t changemaker Dr. Martin Luther King. And as the Great War centenary remembrances draw to a close, we are proud to present The Wipers Times, which celebrates the determination of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity.

MEMOIRS OF AN ASIAN FOOTBALL CASUAL 26 SEP – 6 OCT

Christmas at Curve is always the highlight of our year and whilst Whit e Christmas plays in our Theatre, we are thrilled to be producing Dr Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat for cool kittens and their fami lies this December which will play in our Stud io Theatre. If you’ve enjoyed our Roald Dahl prod uctions over recent years, you will love the fun, anarchy and exuberance of this brand new prod uction. Our Associate Director Suba Das is charged with wrangling the naughty cat and he has assembled an astonishing creative team, including designer Isla Shaw and in charge of the groo vy feline tunes, our Cameron Mackintosh Resident Composer Tasha Taylor Johnson. If you read Dr Seuss as a child, rest assured this production is for children from 4-84 years; Suba’s mad-cap approach will ensure it entertains children of all ages. Our Inside Out festival has grown from humble beginnings into a nationally recognised festival for new work, with many artists touring the UK and sharing work created here at Curve with national companies. This year’s festival is burs ting with new talent – our Andrew Lloyd Webber New Theatre Talent students will present Ché Walk er’s The Frontline, there’s poet-extraordinaire Rachael Young’s Nightclubbing and in the cente nary of the suffragettes, Elaine Pantling’s Alice : In Her Shoes. Curve wouldn’t be the success it is toda y without you. Thank you very much for your continued support. And many thanks to our princ iple funders Arts Council England and Leicester City Council for their continued faith and support. Here’s to the next ten years!

Following the huge success of Until the Lions, award-winning choreographer, dancer and Curve Associate Artist Akram Khan returns with his brand new production, XENOS. Marking his final performances as a dancer in a full-length piece, Akram Khan takes to the stage alongside five world-class musicians. The title XENOS means ‘stranger’ or ‘foreigner’. In this new solo work, Akram and his stellar team of collaborators draw on the archives of the 20th century, unearthing the experience of colonial soldiers in the First World War. XENOS takes place where humanity stands in wonder and disarray, on the border between East and West, past and present, mythology and technology.

MASTERCLASS FOR DANCERS, DANCE TEACHERS, STUDENTS & ARTISTS Led by Nicola Monaco, Rehearsal Director on XENOS Beginning with a warm-up developed through some of the aspects of Akram’s work, participants will be able to explore movement through exercises and tasks focusing on rhythm, speed, precision and clarity. The workshop will develop into learning phrases of movement from the Akram Khan Company Repertoire.

Jay Varsani Riaz

WED 26 SEP – SAT 6 OCT • STUDIO Amid the racial tensions of 1980s British society and the pressure to stay true to his cultural roots at home, Rushey Mead teenager Riaz Khan finds his place with Leicester City’s infamous football hooligans, the Baby Squad. Decked out in the latest designer gear and ready for a brawl with the rival firm on match day, Riaz and his friends create a multi-cultural gang advocating racial tolerance, where the only labels that matter are on clothes. But as the years go by and the casualties of football firms around the country mount up, Riaz soon discovers the true price of belonging to a subculture of violence. Now a De Montfort University Lecturer, Memoirs of an Asian Football Casual tells the coming of age story of reformed Baby Squad member Riaz Khan. Join us in September for this gritty, colourful and spirited world-premiere Made at Curve production, adapted for the stage by Curve Associate Artist Dougal Irvine and directed by Curve’s Artistic Director, Nikolai Foster.

THE LEGEND RETURNS TUE 2 – SAT 6 OCT • THEATRE Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and awardwinning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

PERFORMANCE TIMES Tue – Sat 7.30pm Wed, Thu & Sat 2.15pm TICKETS £45 – £10

Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

Featuring three dance pieces, which use engaging and athletic choreography to explore human and personal issues, 10 showcases Chameleon’s trademark style of creating socially relevant dance theatre that is both powerful and original. Rites, the first major piece of work made by the company in 2007, is a male duet about growing up on the journey from boyhood to manhood, exploring the question what does it mean to be a man? Imprint, a new trio by Kevin Edward Turner, is unashamedly about love, romance and relationships, and the imprint they leave on us; and Anthony Missen’s new solo, Trip, takes you into the dark arena of self-deception, exploring the line between true and false identity. See the piece that launched Chameleon onto the dance scene a decade ago, alongside two new works by the Company’s founders. Inspiring and insightful, retrospective and up-to-the-minute, 10 promises to be a triple-bill that is truly of its time.
