SPOTLIGHT By Nicky Sweetland

I love living in the aria Opera star sings praises of Eltham C

an you name a profession that requires seven years of training in order to gain full accreditation?

I’m sure you’re all thinking about a doctor or a vet, but did you know that to become an opera singer and part of the elite company at The Royal Opera House you also have to go through the rigours of a long instruction period.? One person who knows only too well how much dedication and training it takes to reach the dizzy heights at the top of the world of opera is Eltham resident Elizabeth McGechie. Liz - who is originally from Mansfield - has spent much of her life honing her singing skills in order to ascend to the very top of her industry. And much of her success she credits to the fact that she joined a girls choir as a child. The discipline and devotion she learned paved the way for an illustrious career, first with Glyndebourne and then as a chorister at the world-renowned Royal Opera House in Covent Garden. And the town of Eltham also played a small part in her ascension up the operatic ladder. After seven years of training at what is now called the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Liz took up a summer residency with the British Youth Opera and with nowhere to stay in the capital, was given a home for the summer by a cousin in Eltham. Liz tells me, “It gave me a taste for London and I think that gave me a basis for living in the area.” After performing with Glyndebourne for a few years, Liz found herself returning to the locale. “While I was at Glyndebourne the application came up for choristers for the Royal Opera House.” Liz began the grueling audition process, “I thought, I won’t get the job; it’s a worldrenowned opera house; it’s the Royal Opera House, but I thought, just to be heard would be good.” Needless to say, Liz got the job: “I’m now on my twelfth season and at 25 years you get a medal, so I’d love to get that.” The position meant a permanent move to London was required and after living in Lewisham and Catford, Liz and her husband found their “forever home” in Eltham. And as well as her job in the

4 February 14 2018

“I like the mix. I’m from a working class background, so it feels normal to live among normal people” chorus at the opera house, Liz teaches singing from her home, just off Well Hall Road and tells me about what she loves about the area: “It’s still homely and we love the fact that there’s so much green space; it’s not too gentrified.” Liz explained, “I like the mix. I’m from a working class background so it feels normal to

live among normal people.” Being part of the local community is also quite high on her list of priorities and Liz is a big supporter of Eltham Arts. She can often be found in one of the more arty establishments in the town too, perfecting another of her artistic skills, “On a Monday if I’m not rehearsing, I go up to Pottery

on Parade because I love knitting. It’s one of my dressing room hobbies because we tend to have a lot of waiting around in technical rehearsals when they are testing things out.” But Liz is under no illusion about where her real dedication has to be fielded and it is no easy feat being part of one of the most

acclaimed opera companies in the world. Liz said, “I think you’ve got to have a certain type of personality to be in a fulltime chorus. You have got to be a team player and go with the flow. It’s a really, really heavy schedule; we do 21 different operas a season, so it’s about 200 performances.”

THEATRE Laura Burgoine

Food for

thought

L

uca Silvestrini’s award winning dance company Protein is making show stops at the Tramshed, and Mycenae House as part of a spring tour.

May Contain Food - May Contain You encourages audiences to think about the sensory, cultural and social implications of food. The special adaptation is a duet for dancers Sonya Cullingford and Matthew Winston who both appeared in the original production which toured the UK in 2016. Seated around themed circular tables designed by Yann Seabra, the audience will be served a playful performance, accompanied by songs by acclaimed composer and published home cook Orlando Gough.

laura@weekender.co.uk /

Audiences are invited to join in by bringing and sharing homemade dishes and locally sourced or homegrown food for table picnics. In this informal, immersive cabaret-style show, audiences will be encouraged to share their own stories, memories and anecdotes associated with food, as well as helping the performers bake a sticky ginger pudding live on stage. Speaking about the tour Luca Silvestrini said: “We understand that for a small community what's happening in their town or village hall is much more than a show, and I want May Contain Food, May Contain You to be an event which reflects this quite simple but beautiful concept. We all know that food is not just a way to keep us going, but instead

www.weekender.co.uk 

a more complex system of habits and patterns intimately connected to who we are and how we feel. It has been fascinating to explore this subject and discover how intricate, and often disturbed, our relationship to eating can be; and how easily food becomes a substitute for something we miss, have lost or need.” Luca Silvestrini completed his dance training at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and has been choreographing from 1997 when he co-founded Protein. Orlando Gough is one of the UK’s leading composers, celebrated for his compositions for contemporary dance, ballet and theatre. Recently, he has worked on the community opera Imago, which won a Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2014.

He is an associate artist for the Royal Opera House and published a book of his favourite recipes in 2012. May Contain Food-May Contain You is at the Tramshed, 51-53 Woolwich New Road, SE18 6ES, on February 17 at 7pm. Phone: 020 8854 1316.

Home inspiration

Talking art Artist Nikki Hill-Smith says she has a ‘dialogue’ with the canvas to create the abstract works for Dialogue, writes Michael Holland...

D

eptford artist Jessica Childs has collaborated with developer Pocket Living to create a limitededition range of homewares, writes Laura Burgoine...

The collection Arklow Road SE14 x Childsdraw launches alongside a new development of14 one and twobedroom homes. Jessica, who is the founder of Deptford based brand Childsdraw, has a unique style combining traditional drawing with digital design. The artist draws inspiration from her urban surroundings, the people of Deptford, and the buzz of everyday London life. Jessica’s illustrations and art are applied to various items from prints, to clothing and ceramics - always in limited collections. “Deptford is where my artistic roots are and the people here inspire me,” Jessica said. “I’m really excited about the collaboration with Pocket Living, not only do I have a new opportunity to celebrate my local area but I’m able to work with a developer who invests in and gives back to the communities they work with.”

The collection has been designed to resonate with the people of Deptford and future residents of Arklow Road, featuring Jessica’s signature motifs, including palm trees and local buildings, along with original inspiration taken from the Arklow Road SE14 building and its industrial heritage. The range will be displayed in the newly launched Arklow Road SE14 show home and is available to purchase at www.childsdraw.com Arklow Road SE14 is a period refurbishment in the heart of Deptford. The former propeller factory has 14 Pocket Edition homes, of which 12 two-bedroom apartments are for sale from £450,000. For more information visit: newhomes@currell.com or call 020 7226 6611. Mugs retail at £18, a canvas cushion is £20, velvet cushion: £32, a print is £35. £1000 from the sales is being donated to the Marsha Phoenix Memorial Trust, a Supported Housing Project for single

homeless young women aged 16 to 25. To find out more please visit www.marshaphoenix.org.uk Jessica has just opened her Childsdraw shop in Peckham’s Holdrons Arcade, 135a Rye Lane, SE15 4ST

In the exhibition notes it says that ‘there is a challenge to conjure a dynamic formal language from the almost infinite formlessmess of her medium… her subject matter is “paint itself” rather than the images that she creates’. Hence, because HillSmith wants viewers to think about the paint and conjure up our own vision, all the works are hung untitled. As a viewer I have a problem with that because I like to know what the artist wants us to see in the ‘formlessness’ - even if we still can’t see it. I got into discussion with the Eltham Arts people who were themselves divided between the Titled Untitled debate. At least with a title, I argued, we have a clue as to how we might be looking at the art. Luckily the artist was in attendance and was very happy to discuss her work. I was not a little surprised to hear that she did have titles for all her works and delightfully talked me through a couple. One piece, that had distinct light and dark areas, was meant to depict the dying of her beloved grandmother, and as Nikki spoke about certain aspects of

the sad event that she wanted to portray in the painting, the formlessness began to take a shape; I could now see something of a narrative that was hidden in the ambiguity. Her words helped me make sense of the senseless. Even so, Nikki likes to pose questions of her audience and even sets some out in the notes for visitors to ponder as they walk around the exhibition: What title would you give the work you’re looking at? If the painting was music, what would it sound like? What kind of personality do you think Nikki has? For me, I heard Vivaldi’s Four Seasons because the exhibition has many aspects to it, some artworks appeared summery and others reminiscent of autumn forests… Maybe my titles were nothing like the artists but the questions gave me different eyes to look at the work and I believe this is the reason they are asked. Hill-Smith says: ‘The truth is in the constantly changing dialogue. A rapport between painter and canvas. An invitation to the viewer to participate.’ Dialogue is on at Gerald Moore Gallery, Mottingham, London SE9 4RW until April 14th. Times: Saturdays, 10am - 4pm. Phone: 0208 857 0448. www.geraldmooregallery.org

BOOKS

The devil's in the detail

Sophia Holloway writes bestselling Regency romances in the classic tradition, as exemplified by Georgette Heyer.

She creates a world of eligible, and sometimes very ineligible, gentlemen, and ladies who vary from those anticipating marriage, those who think the chance has passed them by, and even those who have experienced it once and are resolved to never marry again. The Devil You Know is published by Endeavour Press. Why do you choose to write books set in the Regency period? There is a certain decadence, a confidence, within the upper echelon of society, a bit like the decade prior to the outbreak of World War I. Britain is at war, and it is getting to grips with an urban and industrialised working class, and yet for the most part Society, with a capital S, does not take much notice. Unless one has relatives in the Army or the Royal Navy, the war against Napoleon which takes up the first few years of the Regency is merely a background. Of course, for many of the younger characters, it has

laura@weekender.co.uk /

been in the background their entire lives. There is an unashamed joie de vivre that was later repressed by Victorian morality, which was in its turn a reaction to the licentiousness of the Regency. At the same time, there are rigid rules and conventions that are broken at the individual’s peril. It is also a period with which I am familiar, not least from my military history background. The Peninsular War was my first interest, and I grew up on Georgette Heyer. I loved her attention to detail, the repartee, the humour. Are Regency novels outdated in the 21st century? My books follow the ‘classic’ route rather than those of ‘modern Regency romance’, however they are not in some mid-twentieth century time warp. I adhere to Heyer’s principles, but I am not trying to copy her. After all, one could not out-Heyer Heyer. My style is not the same, and I spend a far greater time seeing the situations from the male perspective. It is rare in a Heyer romance to have any insight into the gentlemen’s thoughts, but since I have been writing in

www.weekender.co.uk 

another genre for over a decade, and one where the main characters are male, I feel perfectly at home working from within the male mindset. This in its turn means that where Heyer acknowledged a mere ‘batsqueak’ of sexuality, there is an acceptance of physical desire as part and parcel of their characters. Whilst well-bred young ladies were innocent to the point of ignorance (knowledge of where babies come from is not the same as how they get there), it was accepted that young gentlemen would enjoy liaisons. It is therefore perfectly natural for the male characters to allude to physical desire. I prefer allusion, since, if you need diagrams, you ought to be reading a biology text book not a novel. Do your books include the classic Regency bedroom scenes? I certainly have scenes set in bedrooms, but not ‘bedroom scenes’. This is not prudery but for two very specific reasons. The first is historicity; in a world where the unmarried woman was considered a ‘failure’, and generally condemned to living as a hanger-on in her family, without

the freedom of running her own household, any breath of scandal would be social suicide. If I was writing about the courtesans of the demimonde, or even bored married ladies, it would be different, because sex happened as it always has, but the penalties for stepping over the socially acceptable line were too high for single ladies. Ironically, The Devil You Know is the only story so far set within a marriage, but in fact it is a ‘back to front’ romance, which commences with the wedding of a couple who do not know each other, alludes to an understandably disastrous wedding night, and then works through a courtship to the point where that disaster can be expunged. The second reason is that I see

the relationship between a novel and the reader as one where the reader is not passive, but involved, and is encouraged to use their imagination. How the reader imagines exactly ’what happens next’, or indeed ‘what has happened’, is up to them. I merely give enough hints on which to build their own picture. The Devil You Know is published by Endeavour Press and is available to buy as eBook for £2.99 from Amazon.

FOOD By Michael Holland

American dream

Texas Jacks 238 High Street Bromley BR1 1PQ www.texasjacks.co.uk

A

fter Alaska, Texas is the biggest US state, and in Texas everything is big: guns, egos, Stetsons, cowboy boots and dinners. Continuing the theme, Texas Jacks does a good job of making you feel that you are in the Lone Star state with flags, American memorabilia and huge plates of food, which was very handy because myself and Print and Digital Consultant Extraordinaire Catherine were starving. As I waited at the bar for my dining companion I quaffed a Boston Lager and chatted with the mixologist, who told me that the King Prawns were good. I took note of that bit of info and noted too that there were quite a few people in at this early hour (6pm). I further noted that there is a 5pm - 7pm Happy Hour and it all made sense. When Catherine (Call me Cat) arrived, a little flustered from rush hour traffic, she quickly ordered a Mojito and took charge of the menu like a Boss, steamrolling over any of my suggestions as she called on lots of meat. I mentioned the prawns being good and she agreed to let me have some as a starter. I feel fortunate that she did as they were very nice, with just that right amount of garlic and chilli to make the lips and tongue tingle. We also had Buffalo Chicken Wings that were massive, fall-offthe-bone-tender and in a sticky sauce that coated my fingers for licking and ended up all round my mouth. Scrumptious. If buffalo could fly they would need wings this size. Between courses Emy the manager came over to make sure we had all we needed, and arranged another round of drinks for us. Cat then told me how busy she had been in the Digital Consultant world and about her nut allergy. What! I knew that she had not informed the kitchen about this so, internally, I panicked because my Level One First Aider training had expired in 1998. Outwardly I smiled, had a large glug of lager while trying to remember what the recovery position was. My anxiety levels hit the roof. Just as I was about to feign my own illness and run away a platter of sizzling Chicken Fajitas was set down and making me flinch or get burnt, plus enough Tortillas for wrapping that hot meat. Cat was an expert in Tex-Mex and demonstrated how to load up the tortillas with the sauce, add the meat, the stir fry veg and then roll it. Very novel. As I was constructing my first fajita I scanned the steaming dish for signs of nuts. I saw none and felt my blood pressure subsiding.

How big were those cows to have ribs of those proportions? But then another large plate arrived, this time piled high with Beef Ribs in BBQ Sauce. How big were those cows to have ribs of those proportions? I could have made two cows from the meat on that plate! I gallantly dived in. After about half hour of pretty much nonstop feeding we still had a table full of food, so agreed on allowing the server to clear everything away in order to stop us from picking. I was relieved. But not for long because Cat demanded I have a dessert. ‘I’m too full,’ I pleaded.

‘Don’t be a baby,’ she said with a look of disdain that increased my pain. ‘I swear I couldn’t eat a dessert.’ ‘Have ice cream, anyone can eat ice cream at any time.’ ‘I promise you I can’t right now.’ ‘What kind of reviewer are you that doesn’t have a dessert?’ I was silenced. Cat continued mocking me until our server went by: ‘Can my friend have the ice cream, please? One scoop of vanilla and one of toffee fudge.’ Inside I died. ‘And I’ll have a glass

of Rosé, please,’ she added. The ice cream came and it was delicious - good ice cream always is - but I hardly touched it. I was now more in fear of dying of overeating than Cat’s allergy kicking in. In fact, I was now tempted to force feed her a handful of cashews! Texas Jacks has made me admire those Texas cowboys much more now. It serves good American food and provides a nice atmosphere to enjoy it in. We had a lot of fun there.
