setting beckett to music Brighton Festival’s Chris Challis meets JUDY HEGARTY LOVETT, whose ‘Here All Night’ finds the music in Samuel Beckett

Where did Here All Night originate? As a company – Gare St Lazare – we’ve been working pretty much solidly on Beckett’s texts for the past fifteen years. To date we have produced, performed and toured over seventeen Beckett titles in over seventy cities, and across twenty five different countries.

That’s quite a mix of performers! Yes, a lovely mix, particularly contrasting Caoimhin’s fiddle playing, which is very much improvised, with the cello and the piano, considerably more classical. Much of the work has been the marriage of those two very disparate forms, and then marrying them to the text, and building a structure that itself to all three.

THE DAY THE FAIRY DUST LANDED, Monday 13 May, 20:00, TOM The Old Market

inmates’ inner calm 250,000 prisoners & guards de-stressed Inmates worldwide are being taught inner calm, and this month an event at TOM The Old Market - The Yoga Jam raises funds for the project.

“Prison SMART offenders are easier to look after” Since its inception in 1992, the Prison SMART project has become a massive worldwide success. More than 250, 000 people in around 40 countries have already experienced its positive effects. Prison SMART serves the needs of all people involved, incarcerated or working in the criminal justice system: from adult and juveniles inmates to law enforcement personnel and administrators. The program teaches advanced breathing techniques which bring relief from the accumulated effects of stress

and negative emotions. Practical skills and knowledge teach participants how to handle stressful situations, deal with emotions, live up to their highest potential and contribute in a positive way to society. By focusing specifically on de­stressing and calming the mind, Prison SMART courses mean that offenders are easier to look after, require less work from prison officers, and are more receptive to rehabilitation. At a time when prison budgets in many countries are under pressure due to the financial crisis, Prison SMART offers an efficient alternative at a lower cost than many other therapies. Proceeds from The Yoga Jam, a club night fueled by natural energy boosters, this month go to the Prison SMART project.

[...continued from cover] share what we had come to realise and enjoy about Beckett’s work. How and why is Beckett still relevant today? He is absolutely modern and I think there’s no mistake when people discuss him as one of the greatest writers of this century. His philosophy is not localised - what he speaks about

is not particularly Irish… he’s discussing universal themes; why are we here, what is it for, what is it about and what has to be. These things are on everybody’s mind. LISTEN TO THIS INTERVIEW IN FULL ON FESTIVAL RADIO:
