What’s On Guide

September – December 2011


Turning In 1962 groundbreaking events were rocking the world: Marilyn Monroe died, Ringo Starr joined The Beatles and they released ‘Love Me Do’ their first hit single, Nehru becomes Prime Minister of India, the first Incredible Hulk and Spiderman comics are published, Andy Warhol’s ‘Campbell’s soup cans’ are exhibited for the first time, Nelson Mandela is arrested, the Cuban Missile Crisis threatened the world with nuclear war. It was the same year that Pegasus was born. We are celebrating for the next 12 months from November 2011 to November 2012. Throughout the year we are planning some very special celebrations that bring together friends old and new in a series of events for everyone. Sprinkled through our programme you will see some surprising and exciting little gifts that we have for you to enjoy with us starting in November with an exclusive gig from Radiohead’s Philip Selway, long standing friend of Pegasus kicking off the big five-o year-long party!

Friday 7 to Saturday 8 October 8pm, Saturday matinee 1.30pm Performed by Yaw’s House Productions

Araba’s Song A Slave’s Story The 1st was stolen, the 2nd was resilient. The 3rd was cunning, the 4th was clever and so the 5th was born free. The 6th was searching. We lost the 7th, but the 8th was a survivor. The 9th stood her ground so that you will triumph! A young woman leaves her village in West Africa never to return. Over 300 years later, her children walk amongst you. This is the story of survival, told through the universal voices of motherhood. This is the journey of a treasure from mothers, through daughters to you. A Song of Freedom!

Rivers to Cross ‘History is a clock that people use to tell their time of day! It tells them where they are but more importantly what they must be.’ John Henrik Clarke, 1915-1998 A powerful new play starring Sylvester Williams (East Enders, Bullet Boy, The Posse, The Amen Corner) Rivers to Cross takes audiences on a 174 year roller coaster of a multi-media journey through imperialism, segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, the “Windrush” era and the Black Consciousness Movement, telling the true stories of great accomplishments in the face of adversity. The play features a host of greats including Ira Aldridge, Walter Tull, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Dr. Harold Moody, Paul Robeson and President Barack Obama, in an examination of the black male experience since emancipation.

The Backside Monologues ...Three women, one soul song... The Backside Monologues is a contemporary play exploring love, friendship, experiences and the many ups and few downs of a black female life journey. Three black women through poetry, prose, song and movement share their experiences of life, realising that they are not so different after all. They go beyond the limitations of stereotypes and body parts to discover they all have the same soul song. This Unity Arts commissioned piece is a joint production between Unity Arts and Kuumba Nia Arts is written by Amantha Edmead and directed by John Sailsman, the team who brought Finding Beulah to Pegasus as part of the venue’s re-opening season.

Friday 18 to Saturday 19 November 7pm Saturday matinee 1pm Performed by Platform 4

Macbeth “Tis safer to be that which we destroy, Than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy.” In a land almost afraid to know itself, in a country where unnatural deeds are commonplace, and where the night is filled with a restless ecstasy, Shakespeare’s tragedy of ambition and guilt unfolds. Platform 4’s taut psychodrama crackles with a wild electricity, brought alive by the sonic experiments of composer and guitarist Bic Hayes and sound designer Jules Bushell. Characters appear and disappear from the shadows as part of a nightmarish vision, played out under an immense canopy of darkness.

Led by two of Platform 4’s actors (ex-Kaos and Le Coq trained) you will experiment with different ways of creating some very strange witches on stage. What can we do with masks, materials and a bit of mayhem?! “Platform 4’s strong visual approach creates theatrical rough magic.” Lyn Gardner The Guardian Grab a snack or two from the witches cauldron – not eye of newt but blood red punch and ‘finger’ bites.

Set in Ireland in 1916, the work juxtaposes the developing love affair between two young men with political turmoil in Ireland and the slaughter on the Western Front – contrasting the dream of national liberation and the search for personal freedom. The production is staged in a slowly filling lake in front of a waterfall and performed by two physical performers and two musicians. “Violence, tenderness, passion and humour collide in this super-charged performance” The Times
