Classic Buskers Friday 1 October 2011 Middleton Hall, Hull Campus, 1:1 MiniClassics by the Classic Buskers, Michael Copley and Ian Moore “Technical virtuosity, combined with musical seriousness, humour and high entertainment are a perfect recipe – the audience were delighted.” Ian Ritchie, City of London Festival Director This new programme of mixed repertoire, and the title of the Classic Buskers’ latest CD, MiniClassics, will conclude with Tchaikovsky’s magnificent tribute to the land that gave us pasta – his Caprice Italien. Before that, the audience is treated to an enormous variety of music on highly original instruments including works by Bach and overtures and arias by Offenbach, Mozart and Rossini. There will also be edited highlights from Bizet’s Carmen, plus some beautiful Balkan folk music and an arrangement of Ravel’s Bolero, which uses sonorities unknown even to that master of orchestration. Instruments range from the world’s smallest ocarina to a strangely huge cowhorn as well as the normal selection of flutes, recorders, panpipes, buzzy Renaissance things - and a small but perfect accordion.

Wed 1 to Sat 19 November 2011 Donald Roy Theatre, the Gulbenkian Centre, Hull Campus Our Little Secret combines expressive acting, powerful images, physical movement, vivid colour and music, to theatrically explore the view of the great modern anthropologist Claude Levi Strauss that the taboo of incest was the driving force of humanity. The project has been devised with the intention to create a piece of theatre that speaks to the subconscious mind and to our senses. A performance that demands exaggerated gestures to release unsuspected passions, including repressed and forbidden sexual desires. Experience a piece of thought-provoking theatre that will attack the senses with bizarre sights and sounds as it reaches toward our subconscious impulses and fears. Inspired by the work of Antonin Artaud and Pina Bausch. Warning there could be scenes of a graphic nature and may not be suitable for under 15s. Written by Jake Smith
