‘Love looks not with the eyes but with the mind 

 And therefore is winged Cupid painted blind...’ The Nuffield and Headlong’s re-imagining of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM sets Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy in a 1960s film studio where a Hollywood epic is in the making.  Meanwhile Hippolyta’s turbulent off-camera affair with her costar Theseus is fast becoming the love-hate relationship of the century – and it’s not the only romance to have blossomed on set. Passions rise. Tempers fray. And filming is almost complete. This vivid, thrilling new production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM uses video, movement and music to re-locate Shakespeare’s funniest play in the centre of this magical whirlwind of passion and performance – and asks whether love, like beauty, is really only in the eye of the beholder.  Combining Shakespeare’s original text with a rich and cuttingedge production, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM follows the previous collaborations between The Nuffield and Headlong Edward Gant’s Amazing Feats of Loneliness and The Winter’s Tale.

What you’ll love… A fantastic Shakespeare play spliced with the heightened ‘glamour’ of a 60’s epic film in the making brought to you by a combination of acclaimed theatrical powerhouses and directed by Natalie Abrahami, Artistic Director of The Gate Theatre – what a great start to 2011! 5

The Tempest By William Shakespeare Cheek by Jowl IN RUSSIAN WITH ENGLISH SURTITLES “Whatever Cheek by Jowl does next constitutes a major happening” The Guardian

Directed by Declan Donnellan Designed by Nick Ormerod

Following their highly successful production of Andromaque, we are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Cheek by Jowl back to Southampton with a dynamic new production of THE TEMPEST.   In 1999, Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod were invited by the Chekhov International Festival to form an ensemble. Featuring some of Russia’s finest actor’s, the company first performed in 2000 at Moscow Arts Theatre. Since then, Cheek by Jowl’s Russian sister company has performed across the world from Sydney to Buenos Aires. This new production of THE TEMPEST is the ensemble’s fourth and will perform at only a select few venues in the UK following its Paris opening in January 2011. Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod’s internationally renowned Russian ensemble, whose “acting is nothing short of sublime” (The Times), perform a fresh and innovative interpretation of The Tempest, bringing to life this disturbing masque of power, control and illusion. Shakespeare juggles laughter, danger, magic and love with all the flair and freedom of his maturity.

“The glorious surprise of this “Twelfth Night”... is in how it finds an alchemical substance in Shakespeare that transcends the verbal...Shakespeare’s first language, it would seem, is not English, after all; it’s Theater.” New York Times on Twelfth Night 8

Weaving dance, aerial, circus, shadows and animation with African spirituality and a modern story, FALLEN creates a dynamic and poetic portrait of eternal love, overwhelming loss and the resilience of the human spirit.

Benji Reid, pioneer of hip hop theatre and culture, returns to the stage with an explosive new production from Breaking Cycles – creators of highly energised, emotionally conflicting physical theatre. Riding on a roller coaster to redemption The Devil Has Quentin’s Heart is a twisted, funky and perverse modern day tragedy that exploring the stark realism of substance abuse and fractured relationships. Quentin had it all riding high as an ultra-successful trader on Wall Street but betrayed and framed for fraud he discovers life in the underbelly of New York. Greed knows no limits, as Quentin makes one last wager to save his soul...

BLOODSHOT wowed audiences at The Nuffield last spring, and returns for a short run before going on an international tour. Derek is a skilled photographer, very down on his luck. A mysterious envelope drops through the letter box – a stranger asking him to take pictures of an elegant young woman as she walks through leafy Holland Park. The catch is she must not know she is being photographed… the reward is handsome.

Smoking, drinking, ambitious and paranoid, one couple’s forty-year journey from initial burst to full bloom.

Chouf Ouchouf Groupe Acrobatique de Tangier Devised and Directed by Zimmermann & de Perrot A witty and highly skilled show for adults and children over seven. We are delighted to present Groupe Acrobatique de Tangier, a company of twelve Moroccan acrobats, with their new production, CHOUF OUCHOUF produced and directed by awardwinning Swiss artists Zimmermann and de Perrot. Weaving together contemporary performance and traditional Moroccan acrobatics in a poetic exploration of North African culture, CHOUF OUCHOUF reflects the daily life in the Medina. In the Medina, the old quarter, it’s ten to a house, and a hundred to the narrowest street. Shout or you won’t be heard; push to the front or never be seen. Life and colour lie around every corner, animals and cigarette hawkers fill the squares. The city is unruly, chaotic, but no matter – beneath the clamour and fights of the market are the whispers of its other life. Dusk falls like a shutter, then the night. Silently the walls open, and amid the maze-like streets and along the rooftops figures move on secret agendas. What, or who, is in the bag?

“ With an insouciant brilliance, they fill the stage with multiple back-flips, dizzying cartwheels, perilous human pyramids and vaulting trampoline stunts… everyone was spellbound.” The Guardian on previous show Taoub

Tackling the thorny issue of economic hardship, Publick Transport presents a reinterpretation of Dickens’ classic so breathtakingly radical that it bears no resemblance to the original whatsoever! Replete with wicked humour, musical treats and visual delights (not to mention theatrical incompetence, petty squabbles and nervous breakdowns) Publick Transport grabs three generations of theatre-goers by the throat and drags them kicking and screaming back to the 19th century.

Created and performed by Caroline Horton Paris 1945. Christiane waits for a ticket to England that will reunite her with her fiancé. While she waits, this delightfully irrepressible mademoiselle recounts the love story which started at Cheadle Tennis Club between her – an eccentric, acutely-myopic Parisian – and a tongue-tied English teacher from Staffordshire. A tender, comic portrayal of one woman’s experience of love and war. Comic theatre at its most moving and inspiring. Caroline Horton won Solo Performer, The Stage Awards 2010 for this charming one-woman show. Commissioned by China Plate/Warwick Arts Centre/mac.

Bourgeois & Maurice are a musical double act with style as sharp as their wit. Part-cabaret, part-theatre, part-catwalk freakshow, their songs blend unashamedly catchy pop hooks with bitingly satirical lyrics.

Martin is successful, but struggling, his lover is lost in Eurodisney, his biographer doesn’t like him and his wife couldn’t care less. He has only his daughter to complain to. What a pity she is 5.

Blackman’s characters inhabit a twilight sensual world where they struggle with love, conflict and hope.
