Welcome to Harrow Arts Centre My name is Allan Cumberbatch, I’m the Front of House Manager at Harrow Arts Centre and I would like to present to you our Spring programme for 2014. Since joining HAC in 2010, I have witnessed the steady improvement in the quality and range of our performances. The Spring programme will be full of energy and entertainment but most importantly it will be a programme for you to enjoy. Our Friday Jazz strand welcomes back Courtney Pine and Jacqui Dankworth and we have fantastic half term activities and workshops for the children. Our cinematic strand will be delivering afternoon classics, children’s films and let’s not forget the London Asian Film Festival which is always well supported. We also have some very interesting theatre pieces including the double bill from Voices of the Holocaust with ‘Fragile Fire’ and ‘Under the Apple Tree’. And don’t forget to join us for one of our high energy comedy nights in the Elliott Hall – get your tickets early as they always sell out quickly!

The Warsaw Ghetto Plays: Fragile Fire & Under the Apple Tree

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Following their 5 star-rated, sell out production of Measure for Measure, Off West End nominated Immersion Theatre are thrilled to embark on their first UK tour with one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. Set in Great Britain just before the start of the Great War, this charming adaptation sees some of Shakespeare’s most iconic characters transported to a time of unparalleled peace and prosperity. Four young lovers, a band of hapless actors, and a magical realm populated by enchanting spirits set on causing mischief and mayhem at every turn culminate in an evening of beauty and hilarity.

Fragile Fire

As the Germans were sending the 400,000 inmates of the ghetto to their deaths in Treblinka, 24 year old Anielewicz and his colleagues determinedly fought back, taking their fate into their own hands. This play tells this powerful story of resistance and rebellion, hope and faith against a backdrop of one of the most disturbing periods of human history.

Under the Apple Tree

The glass jars were buried under the apple tree of an ordinary house in Warsaw. In each jar was a secret. A secret that would be kept for the whole of the war despite fear, torture and a sentence of death by firing squad. In the jars were the true names and identities of over 2,500 Jewish children rescued from the Warsaw ghetto by Irena Sendler, a Roman Catholic social worker.

Edwin Aitken & Sean Williams: Helter Skelter 8 January - 2 February The Gallery at HAC

In their work, the symbiotic relationship between a place and a person can often be ambiguous, as each defines and influences the other via a complex web of associations and interactions. Both Aitken and Williams have an interest in the in-between spaces of everyday life. Through painting, drawing, site-specific work and photography, the artists explore a number of themes related to suburbia and how our sense of reality and identity, both as individuals and as a wider society, are constructed and defined by our environment.

Visual Arts Jane McAdam Freud: Painted Earth 5 February - 2 March The Gallery at HAC

Inspired by images and objects encountered in the Middle East, this sculpture engages topography and linguistic play through process and medium. Subjects reference both ancient myth and future fantasies. Painted Earth is a material contemplation. Meditations on our relationship with the self and other, through time and place are manifest through the bringing together of past and future cultural mechanisms.

Robyn Wilson Owen and Samantha Harvey: Mystical Creatures 5 - 30 March The Gallery at HAC

Robyn Wilson-Owen is an illustrator specialising in hand drawn and hand made images and Samantha Harvey is a mixed media artist making stitched sculptures and collages. Taking their cue from William Morris who wrote that “you cannot go wrong... so long as you avoid the commonplace and keep somewhat on the daylight side of nightmare�, Robyn and Sam have been re-imagining mystical creatures from mythology, legend and their minds. ~

Charles Gershkovich: Audio Photography 2 - 27 April The Gallery at HAC

A photograph that exists beyond the snapshot of time, allowing a long forgotten snapshot to be re-homed acknowledging its past and future as a visual and aural experience.
