MUSIC DANCE THEATRE Film Lectures Visual Arts


Welcome

It’s not rocket science… That said, the interaction between art and science is a recurring theme across all our artforms this year, highlighted by the rocket symbol next to the relevant events. We start our new season in September in the Lewis Elton Gallery with an interactive and digital art exhibition – Supernature: Lab-oratory – featuring installations and exhibits by artists who have been working with academic staff from a range of disciplines. Come and ‘play’ with light and sound and immerse yourself in this specially curated space. Following this, Tony de Saulles, the illustrator for the Horrible Science series, will be exhibiting digital art alongside drawings by local children inspired by his work, while in What is Beyond? Dr Mohammed Sanduk imbues the art of glass with his knowledge of physics. In her fourth visit to the University, Jennifer Hollingdale, originally a mathematician, brings a collection that re-forms old materials into contemporary artworks. In a similar vein, the Surrey Sculpture Society Autumn Lecture brings Laura Ellen Bacon to discuss her site-specific sculptural forms created with densely-woven willow.

/ MUSIC / DANCE

The one-man theatre show The Ethics of Progress gives us a witty whistle-stop tour of leading-edge Quantum Physics. This is especially useful if you are also interested in attending two special talks taking place at the University as part of this year’s annual Guildford Book Festival. TV stars Ben Miller and Professor Jim Al-Khalili present two highly entertaining shows, It’s Not Rocket Science and Paradox, The Nine Greatest Enigmas in Science respectively. Their enthusiastic and down-to-earth explanations of science are engaging and mind-expanding. Pushing the boundaries of sound are Duo, harpist Rhodri Davies and saxophonist John Butcher (formerly a Surrey Physics student), who use improvisation and amplified techniques so that it is often unclear where the sounds they make are coming from.

/ THEATRE / Film

Our art-house film series Animation: 100 years of Artistry and Innovation shows three films which mark real watersheds in the history of animation – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Toy Story and A Scanner Darkly – alongside shorts from the same filmmaker that shows how specific techniques were developed. You are also invited to pause at one of our regular Lunchtime Recitals or Rush Hour concerts, listen to some orchestral favourites in the Autumn Classics concert, and have a laugh at Rannel Theatre Company’s Hip-Hop comedy 2Deep. And you might choose to be more hands-on by joining a pottery, painting or drawing class, attending poetry readings or participating in the Creative Writers’ Group.

Guildford School of Acting presents a diverse range of theatre that showcases students on the verge of professional careers. In Dickens’ bicentennial year, productions include acclaimed director Jonathan Holloway’s fast-paced adaptation of Nicholas Nickleby, set in the 1950s, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, which draws upon British Pantomime and Music Hall traditions, Merrily We Roll Along, winner of the 2001 Olivier Award for Best Musical, and the dark comedy The Gut Girls. The GSA season kicks off with the MA Graduate Showcase, also performed in London to industry professionals. Jet along.

Animation: 100 years of Artistry and Innovation A Season of Free Screenings from our Art House Cinema, Curated by Dr Bella Honess Roe. The history of animation is one of creative artistry interwoven with technical innovation. This series shows three films that mark significant watersheds in the history of animation, where artistic vision has been facilitated by significant developments in animation production techniques. Each film will be screened with a short from the same filmmakers that shows how the ideas, styles and techniques were developed.*

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Directed By Walt Disney (1937) 83 min (U) PATS Studio Admission free, but booking recommended

Jennifer Hollingdale Wallpaper

Jennifer originally studied Fine Art and Mathematics and began using fabric and stitch in the 1980s. In this collection of work she is examining the old fashioned virtues of thrift and domestic economy. Old materials with all their associations of long usage, often decayed or damaged are re-formed into something new with a contemporary reference. Included are household linens, bedding, wallpaper, sections of clothes,

labels, packaging, and sewing notions. Jennifer has always been a collector of objects and pieced into her quilts you will discover screen printed images taken from these objects, some of which are on show in this exhibition. She also displays a series of stitched prints, assemblages, and a free standing screen using postcards and vintage furnishing fabrics. This is her fourth exhibition at the University of Surrey.

Known as ‘Disney’s folly’ during its lengthy and expensive production, Snow White was the first feature-length animated film made by the Disney studios, making use of technology first trialled in The Old Mill (1937). The film was a feat of creativity and patience and the artisan quality of the images prevails in the face of far more advanced animation techniques and technologies. Disney’s conviction was justified when the film made a large profit for the studio. Snow White set the benchmark for Disney, and its competitors, and the film can be seen as one of the foundations of contemporary animation. The evening will open with a short introduction by Dr Bella Honess Roe, followed by a very rare screening of The Old Mill (1937, 2 min) and then the main feature, ending with an informal Q&A over drinks.

Established in 1986 by Disney devotee and one-timeemployee John Lasseter, Pixar Studios has become synonymous with funny, astute stories realised through distinctive, ground-breaking 3D computer animation. Toy Story was the studio’s first feature and was a success in part because it appealed to adults as much as children. The seeds of the Pixar style can be seen in their first short film, Luxo Jnr. (1986), which was made to demonstrate their new computer animation software, and explains that hopping lamp in their logo.

Animation innovation doesn’t just take place at studios, as demonstrated by the work of independent animator Bob Sabiston. Sabiston’s proprietary animation software, Rotoshop, was used in Waking Life (2001) and then again for A Scanner Darkly (even though Sabiston and his team were fired off the production due to ‘creative differences’ with the studio, Warner Brothers). Sabiston initially developed Rotoshop, a digital means of tracing over live action footage to produce a distinctive, undulating style of animation, to animate interviews and scenes from real life, as in Snack and Drink (1999).

Sabiston initially developed Rotoshop, a digital means of tracing over live action footage to produce a distinctive, undulating style of animation, to animate interviews and scenes from real life, as in Snack and Drink (1999).

Now in its 23rd year, the Guildford Book Festival has established itself as a firm favourite in the cultural calendar. It attracts nationally (and sometimes internationally) known names for ten days of celebration of literature in all genres: from history, science and art to crime, cuisine and comedy. Coming this year will be novelists to suit all tastes, from the hugely popular Salley Vickers to bestselling mystery writer Robert Goddard and the great chronicler of the Romans, Simon Scarrow. Other highlights include Henrietta Garnett and Sue Bradbury discussing the PreRaphaelite Brotherhood; an exciting line-up of crime writers, including Nicci French and Peter James; Lesley Downer and John Man revealing the exotic world of Japanese geisha and ninja; and Lucinda Hawksley on her great-great-great-grandfather, Charles Dickens. Doyennes of cookery Prue Leith and Mary Berry will be talking about life, food and everything, and evenings bound to end in tears of laughter will be provided by Sandi Toksvig, Kathy Lette and Jenny Eclair.

The University is the venue for the Festival’s celebration of science, starting with an exhibition in the Lewis Elton Gallery by Tony De Saulles, illustrator of the Horrible Science series. There will be talks by particle physicist Ben Miller (aka the half of Armstrong & Miller that isn’t Armstrong) on – in his words – the ‘best bits of science’ and Professor Jim Al-Khalili on science’s greatest enigmas. Additionally, the Apollo Theatre Company, featuring former GSA students, will be marking the centenary of Alan Turing’s birth with a dramatised reading of Breaking the Code at The Electric Theatre. As part of the Festival’s ongoing community involvement, events extend beyond the realm of town and gown to author visits to local schools and HMP Send.

Bones Will Crow A performance of Burmese poetry in English Lecture Theatre M Tickets: £3, students, concessions and English PEN members free.

Ben Miller © Colin Thomas

At a turning point in Burma’s history with the release from detention of Aung San Suu Kyi and an amnesty given to some imprisoned writers, the University of Surrey’s English PEN Society presents a performance of Burmese poetry read in English by staff and students. Bones Will Crow is the first anthology of contemporary Burmese poets published in the West and includes the work of Burmese poets who have been in exile and in prison. The anthology, published by Arc, is the winner of an English PEN award for outstanding literature in translation.

This is definitely the year of the particle physicist: the momentous announcement of the Higgs Boson from CERN... and comedian Ben Miller returns to his scientific roots. Ben was working on his PhD (Novel quantum effects in quasi-zerodimensional electron systems) when he left Cambridge to pursue a career in comedy. He is now half of the highly popular TV comedy duo, Armstrong & Miller, and a successful actor, but has always maintained a passionate interest in science, and contributes a regular column in Eureka, The Times’s science magazine.

It’s Not Rocket Science is an engaging and accessible look at science’s ‘best bits’: black holes, global warming, the Hadron Collider, possibly even a little rocket science. Whether your own involvement in science stopped short of dissecting a frog in the classroom or you are currently fervently studying, Ben Miller’s infectious enthusiasm and broad-ranging topics cannot fail to fascinate.

Paradox: The Nine Greatest Enigmas in Science School of Management Lecture Theatre Tickets: £8, £5 students and concessions Available from Guildford Book Festival Box Offices: 01483 444789 / 444334 www.guildfordbookfestival.co.uk Jim Al-Khalili is professor of Physics here at Surrey, where he also holds a Chair in the Public Engagement in Science. But his reputation extends well beyond the Surrey campus; in addition to being a Vice President and Trustee of the British Science Association and holding an EPSRC Senior Media Fellowship, he is well known through his regular TV and radio broadcasts such as Shock and Awe and The Life Scientific.

His latest book, Paradox, looks into science’s greatest enigmas: Is it possible to travel through time and kill your grandfather? If the universe is infinite, where are all the aliens? Is Schrödinger’s cat dead or alive, or both? Jim Al-Khalili takes us on a mind-expanding tour through these and other universal puzzles that have kept scientists pushing the limits of our understanding.

Based on the densely woven volume of nesting forms, Laura Ellens Bacon’s work transforms the craft of willow weaving into extraordinary sculpture that merges with its surroundings. Her installations are site-specific and respond to their settings by clinging to existing structures forming a dynamic relationship with their host. She was selected as a Jerwood Contemporary Maker in

“I began making my early works upon dry stone walls and evolved to work within trees, riverbanks and hedges, allowing the chosen structure (be it organic or manmade) to become host. Over a decade into my work, my passions have returned to not only merging with dry stone walls, but to the powerful connections with architecture.” 18

2010 and this year her architectural installation Split Forms was shown at New Art Centre, Roche Court, Wiltshire. Bacon’s powerful organic forms drew visitors into the Kitchen Garden at Chatsworth in Derbyshire in 2011. Recently at Blackwell Art & Crafts House she created Exposed, a dramatic structure spanning two floors of the exterior of this historic building.

“If Butcher’s approach to the saxophone is a bit idiosyncratic, then Davies’ approach to the harp is downright revolutionary. He prefers attack to decay; he prefers arco to pizzicato; and he prefers overtones to fundamentals.” avant

Duo John Butcher and Rhodri Davies

WED 10 OCT

PATS Studio One Tickets: £5, students free

Prof Steve Downes (University of Surrey): Power, play, seduction and resistance

The Duo comprises Rhodri Davies, an eclectic harpist who has performed with groups such as the Cinematic Orchestra and The Magic Numbers, and his musical collaborator, saxophonist John Butcher, who is also, interestingly, a Surrey Physics graduate. In this concert, the DUO will turn the conventional use of instruments on its head and explore the full range of sound and performance possibilities through the use of amplification, extended techniques and imagination; often to the point where it is no longer clear where the sound is coming from.

John Butcher © William E. Woodcock

On alternate Wednesday afternoons during term time we run research seminars in Music. These are 1-hour talks, followed by questions, and finishing with intense discussion (on a range of topics) in the bar at Wates House! They are given by academics, both at Surrey and elsewhere, exploring aspects of ongoing research projects. Although these seminars are part of our PhD programme (and attended by research students themselves undertaking very different projects), anyone is most welcome to join us, particularly if you find the topic interesting. Most presentations are fascinating, and some of the later discussions are even better...

Butcher and Davies began working together in 1997 and made their first live album together in 2000. Ten years later they produced Carliol, on which sounds this concert will expand. This relationship aids the improvisational nature of their collaboration, bringing out conversations and connections in the music. Both have worked in multiple collaborations with improvisation legends such as Derek Bailey and Evan Parker, always pushing the limits of their instruments to create interesting and engaging music.

WED 24 OCT Speaker and topic to be confirmed

WED 7 NOV Dr Lauren Redhead (University of Surrey): Undertaking practice-led research in interdisciplinary and collaborative contexts

The Duo comprises Rhodri Davies, an eclectic harpist who has performed with groups such as the Cinematic Orchestra and The Magic Numbers, and his musical collaborator, saxophonist John Butcher, who is also, interestingly, a Surrey Physics graduate. In this concert, the DUO will turn the conventional use of instruments on its head and explore the full range of sound and performance possibilities through the use of amplification, extended techniques and imagination; often to the point where it is no longer clear where the sound is coming from.

On alternate Wednesday afternoons during term time we run research seminars in Music. These are 1-hour talks, followed by questions, and finishing with intense discussion (on a range of topics) in the bar at Wates House! They are given by academics, both at Surrey and elsewhere, exploring aspects of ongoing research projects. Although these seminars are part of our PhD programme (and attended by research students themselves undertaking very different projects), anyone is most welcome to join us, particularly if you find the topic interesting. Most presentations are fascinating, and some of the later discussions are even better...

Butcher and Davies began working together in 1997 and made their first live album together in 2000. Ten years later they produced Carliol, on which sounds this concert will expand. This relationship aids the improvisational nature of their collaboration, bringing out conversations and connections in the music. Both have worked in multiple collaborations with improvisation legends such as Derek Bailey and Evan Parker, always pushing the limits of their instruments to create interesting and engaging music.

WED 24 OCT Speaker and topic to be confirmed

WED 7 NOV Dr Lauren Redhead (University of Surrey): Undertaking practice-led research in interdisciplinary and collaborative contexts

WED 21 NOV Dr Nicola Dibben (University of Sheffield): Music apps: birth of a new music format? A case study of Björk’s Biophilia

Fings Ain’t Wot They Used To Be Ivy Arts Centre Tickets: £10, £9 concessions Book by Frank Norman Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

Director Nicholas Tudor Musical Director Steve Hill Designer Roger Ness

Disillusionment and reprisal are followed by scenes of early love and success that shaped the man that he has become.

Originally written as a play, this comedy has the dialogue in the Cockney dialect with much rhyming slang and thieves’ cant. A celebration of an idealised East End and Soho bohemian lifestyle at the end of the 1950s, as knocking shops and coffee shops teemed with ponces, doxies, molls, spivs, gamblers and bent coppers: even the Kray Brothers make a prophetic appearance.

Winner of Olivier Award for Best Musical, 2001

Winner of the Evening Standard Award for Best Musical 1960.

Ivy Arts Centre Tickets: £10, £9 concessions Adapted by Jonathan Holloway from the novel by Charles Dickens This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

Director Jonathan Holloway Designer Neil Irish Lighting designer Ian Saunders Dickens, the great social reformer, here enjoys a spirited outing in this fast-paced 1950s set adaptation accompanied by live ‘Skiffle’ music. Holloway’s brilliant production makes such sense. Dickens’s angry novels marked the beginning of the great British rejection of the laissez-faire cruelty and cash-driven indecency of the early industrial revolution, and then the post-war period marked the ultimate triumph of that rejection, the moment when people finally rose up and rejected the old sadomasochistic culture of Ralph Nickleby and Wackford Squeers. First produced in 2001, GSA’s production takes place on the eve of publication by Samuel French. “…a brilliant tribute to a great novelist who was also a mighty campaigner.” * * * * The Scotsman

THE Gut Girls The Mill Studio at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Tickets: £10, £5 concessions By Sarah Daniels This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

Director Lucy Richardson The girls at the Victorian East London slaughterhouse are brash, foul-mouthed, beer-swilling Cockneys, mostly from desperate economic straits and dangerous pasts, but full of pride as working girls and scornful of the illusion of male supremacy.

The Mill Studio at Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre Tickets: £10, £9 concessions A musical by Rupert Holmes Original Broadway production produced by the New York Shakespeare Festival Joseph Papp, Producer Winner of 5 Tony Awards including Best Musical These amateur performances are given by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

Director Andrew C Wadsworth Musical Director Peter Roberts Derived from two major inspirations: Charles Dickens’s final, and unfinished novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and the British Pantomime and Music Hall traditions that reached the height of their popularity in the years following Dickens’ death.

One week’s pay equals a year’s earnings for the typical household servant. And you don’t have to take your work home with you; unless you’re swiping extra cuts of pork to put in the stew.

The show tells the story of the upstanding, young Edwin Drood who mysteriously disappears and is presumably murdered. But who did it? There are so many names in the frame and the audience gets to decide!

“A weird and wondrous black comedy.” The Spectator
