Pig Earth - An Evening of Alternative Folk

Local band, Pig Earth, sound like no other. They deliver their brew of original, melodious, acoustic folk song with an infectious zeal that lifts the spirit. Whether it be the stomping rhythms that at times embrace skiffle or the rolling narrative tales punctuated with classical strings, you will be hooked.

This is 'alternative folk' borrowing from the age-old traditional partnership of melodeon and fiddle, but still very much of this time. Songs of love, travel, roots and home, with the odd steam train thrown in, are told through the harmonised vocals of the songwriters. Piano, guitar, fiddle, melodeon, bass and drums fuse to form a myriad of sound that is unique to the Pig Earth experience.

Next add a young lady patient who the doctor takes a fancy to, but who in turn takes an interest in his son, and the doctor's sister who is more concerned about her flat chest than her courtship with the limp but good-natured vicar, Canon Throbbing. Finally stir this with the President of the British Medical Association and an assortment of characters which include a "bust" fitter salesman from Leatherhead and you are left with this wickedly funny play from the talented Alan Bennett.

Monday 20 - Friday 24 July
10am-12noon
at Morley College, Waterloo, London
Taught by Alex Crowe

Skinner Releasing Technique (SRT) teaches the fundamental physical skills and awareness that underlie almost any style of movement and dance. Learning is through non-stylised, improvisatory movement, guided by carefully designed imagery and music, supplemented with hands-on partnerwork. Combining technique with creative process, and precision with playfulness, SRT can lead to deep neuro-muscular changes, yet is enjoyable and accessible to people of all levels of movement aptitude and experience.

This intensive course, covering the first five classes of the Introductory Pedagogy, offers an in-depth experience of this gentle but powerful approach to finding alignment, freedom and creativity in our movement.

The compassionate treatment of our inner lives, focusing on everyday events, now continues into exotic realms to which we would all like to be lifted, and we are indebted to Eileen for enticing us with these sublime works.

Ultimate Love Story
17 April - 16 May
www.bearspace.co.uk
BEARSPACE presents 'Ultimate Love Story', the first solo-exhibition by artist Isabel Rock. BEARSPACE will become the location for Rock's investigation of human behaviour through a series of works layering drawing, print, collage and other intriguing media. Isabel Rock states of her work 'I use distorted animals as a metaphor for human relationships to create a world inhabited by these lecherous slobbering beings, ever ready to consume.' This parallel world creates a space for Rock's creatures to interact with each other making nightmarish, surreal fairy tales for the viewer to observe.

Connaught Brown


Shani Rhys James: Two Ateliers
24 April - 30 May
www.connaughtbrown.co.uk
Connaught Brown presents its first solo exhibition of works by Shani Rhys James.
Her subject matter is consistent and familiar - self-portrait, domestic interior and still life, yet she creates an unusual paradox through her distinctive figurative realism which gives private subject matter very public exposure. Raw paint colours hint at the fragile skin which exists between concealment and exposure, and the often uncomfortable process of self discovery. Disturbing in their mesmeric directness, even at a distance, Rhys James's paintings are characterized by an unmistakable magnetism.

Laura Letinsky: Likeness
30 April - 30 May
www.jameshymangallery.com
Laura Letinsky is one of the most important North American artists working in photography today. Her elegiac photographs of detritus on a table-top are both elegantly prosaic and art historically resonant in their reference to Dutch vanitas still life painting of the Seventeenth Century.
These still lifes are both everyday and infused with significance. Lyrical and formal, the subjects are dissolved by light, often set off against white walls and table cloths.
