Points of Juncture by Cos Ahmet The core of Cos Ahmet’s work is centred around on the body, and more specifically, his own. Recurring themes of self, identity, gender and memory, are emotive features in much of his work, displayed as a complex set of body dialogues. Shaped by his use of metaphors, the body becomes symbolised through various interlinks – points of juncture, where body and material respond or react with each other. These responses come to light in the diverse processes and characteristics of his practice, that range from woven tapestry, works on paper, to sculpture and objects, as he makes loose connections with their attributes to represent parts of the human form. Ahmet’s approach to making, takes the traditional and practical methods of weaving, and combines the other disciplines in his practice to turn this quiet and meditative medium, typically associated with the domestic, and the subtlety of a craft usually reserved for intimate, detailed work, into challenging, visceral and thought provoking works. Thursday 27 July – Sunday 22 October, Thursdays to Sundays, 11am – 5pm Free

Refugee Boy Follow the story of Alem, a refugee forced to flee his family and country for London in the late 1990s, to escape civil war at home in the disputed region between Ethiopia and Eritrea. As a child of parents from both regions, Alem is in great danger from the forces of both sides, and is forced to seek safety alone in the UK. The play, directed by Jelena Budimir and based on the book by acclaimed poet Benjamin Zephaniah, shows us the human face behind the news stories. Benjamin Zephaniah said, ‘This planet is for everyone, borders are for no one. It’s all about freedom.’ Chickenshed agrees wholeheartedly with this sentiment, looking to break down borders and to put an end to marginalisation of all sorts. With this season, the company demonstrates its long-held aim: to offer an alternative to cynicism, to exclusion and to the rejection of those who are different.
