George Grosz / Curated by Lutz Becker A Hayward Touring Exhibition from the Southbank Centre, London

Tuesday 7 May – Saturday 1 June George Grosz (1893-1959) was one of the greatest satirical artists of the 20th Century. A cofounder of the Berlin Dada group and revolutionary in the 1920s, he made hundreds of drawings depicting the vices and injustices of a society on the brink of economic and moral collapse. Many of Grosz’s drawings were published in portfolios by the left wing publisher Malik-Verlag, and this new Hayward Touring Exhibition, presents two of the most powerful: ‘Ecce Homo’, 1923, and ‘Hintergrund’ (‘Background’), 1928.



To enrich the quality of life for all residents and visitors To encourage participation in the performing, visual and literary arts To educate, inspire and encourage debate

Water’s Edge

Monday 3 June – Saturday 22 June

Monday 24 June – Saturday 6 July

“I often look at my paintings and daydream possible continuations panning out beyond the frame. Particularly when pictures follow a scenic route, one finds oneself at the boundary line with the urge to take an extra step… then perhaps another.

This exhibition examines the varying patterns and textures of the shoreline where land and sea interact with one another. This mutual manipulation gives rise to an infinite possibility of the shapes and patterns. The shoreline, therefore, is an endless subject; a fluid, sinuous border constantly in flux that yields fixed forms when captured on camera – forms which are infinite in supply. Looking up from the shoreline, the exhibition also includes a series of beachscapes. All images are taken on St. Brelade’s Bay.

“I seem to be developing a habit of making extra steps, and in ways that may allow still further continuation if the mood requires – works in progress, perhaps.” – Martin McDowell

The Kartoon Faktory is a new venture, designed to bring some humour and a smidgen of satire to Jersey life and beyond. All of the artwork is handdrawn using fine line pens, then polished off with digital techniques. Displayed will be high quality cartoons and illustrations, light heartedly poking fun at our Island. 6

The Student Art Exhibition returns this year and will profile the work of six selected artists who are currently studying on Visual Arts Degree and Foundation courses in Jersey and the UK. It will be a vibrant and exciting exhibition, which has, in the past, helped launch the careers of Jersey artists such as Robert Greene, Katy Brown and Catriona McCarthy.

Hobson’s Choice

Saturday 11 May

Monday 13 May

Josephine is putting on a play – Boris and Sisahl help. It’s about anorexia. You don’t need to be put off. Unflinchingly they confront big issues (and extremely tiny ones) and today they will tackle a particularly thin elephant in the room. Obsession, addiction and not wanting to get out of bed: a play with songs. Winner of The Stage Awards’ Best Ensemble 2012.

Winner of the British Academy Film Award for Best British Film in 1954, Hobson’s Choice is a romantic comedy directed by David Lean, based on the play of the same name by Harold Brighouse. Henry Hobson tries forcefully to run the lives of his three unruly daughters. When he decrees ‘no marriages’ to avoid expensive matters of settlements, eldest daughter Maggie rebels and sets her sights on Will Mossop, Hobson’s star employee.

Frank Wurzinger Directed by John Wright

Once Upon a Time in Anatolia

Thursday 16 May

Monday 20 May

After the success of The Confetti Maker, Frank Wurzinger has teamed up again with awardwinning theatre director John Wright (Trestle, Told by an Idiot) to create this hilarious one man physical comedy about life, death and afterlife. Goodbye plays with one of our biggest fears and taboos: dying. The ever-optimistic protagonist finds humour in even the darkest moments. Slapstick, clowning, irreverent improvisation and object-play help this clown to rehearse the end of his life.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes last year, this slow-burning, subtly nuanced psychological drama is a beautifully photographed, multi-layered mystery. A team of detectives are scouring the hillsides for the body of a murder victim but, as the search drags on, it is clear the case is not as simple as first appears.

Monday 17 June

An exceptionally gifted young violinist, Tamsin Waley-Cohen studied at the Royal College of Music where she won all available awards and was their String Player of the Year in 2005.

A touching and beautifully low-key reflection on guilt and redemption. Teenager Roman was abandoned by his mother and raised in an orphanage; he is now serving time in a juvenile detention centre having accidentally killed a boy in a brawl. He eventually finds a probation job at a municipal morgue in Vienna. When he is one day faced with a dead woman who bears his family name, it occurs to him that this may be the mother who gave him up for adoption and begins to explore his past.

Pearls Before Wine

Wednesday 26 June – Saturday 29 June

Monday 1 July

The body of a homeless person is discovered in an alley of an unnamed city; a nameless corpse lent significance by the white tape that describes its outline on the pavement. Who are they? Who were they? What led them to this place, this fate? Will anyone miss them? Does anyone care?

It was in March 1983 that Dillie Keane founded Fascinating Aida. Now, thirty years on, Dillie, Adele Anderson and Liza Pulman are Britain’s top female musical comedy act, with three Olivier Awards and three New York Drama Desk nominations to their credit.

In their 16th production – devised and written by Jason Kenyon and the members of ArtsCentreTheatre, from an original idea by Chris Robertshaw – ACT explores a world of fear and prejudice; a world whose denizens are both defined and damned by their residential status and a world that many are closer than they imagine to experiencing first hand. Suitable for 14 years +

In this show they will be premiering brand new material, but also including some much loved songs, including their YouTube hit: Cheap Flights, which has now been viewing by over 10 million people worldwide. Expect fun, filth and fits of uncontrollable laughter, along with exquisite vocal harmonies and gorgeous outfits. Suitable for 16 years +

Oddsocks: The Comedy of Errors

Final Concert

Monday 29 July – Wednesday 7 August (not Sunday 4 August)

Sunday 4 August

A servant and master from far off Syracuse arrive in Ephesus in search of their long-lost twin brothers. In no time at all they are trapped in a terrifying chain of chaotic events. Tormented by a wild wife, a moody mistress, challenged by a crazy jeweller and damned by a demonic doctor, the terrified twosome run headlong into a happy ending which defies all possibility. A summer Turkish delight not to be missed!

A breathtaking evening of music, celebrating the conclusion of the new 10-day international music course, attracting outstanding music students from Europe, Russia and the UK.

Please bring warm and waterproof clothing, as performances will go ahead whatever the weather. Please note that no refunds will be offered unless a performance is cancelled.

ECHO WOOD by Andrew Motion

When I arrived in that new country for the first time I came by boat, by canoe in fact, and completely alone, so the pines and conifers stepping down to the river, some with their roots showing as pink as pigs’ tails in the dark current that swirled past them regardless, were my only company. It was for this reason perhaps I found myself striking my double-ended paddle hard against the side of my canoe: to frighten them away if such a thing were possible. Also to start their echoes, and to have these echoes grow and so fill up the woods with circles of dilating sound as if awakening the trees or something. Stirring up, as might be done to animals and people, and to make all melody a replica of things they understand already, and the place they hear them.
