    "I envy the Japanese" Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo.  In the exhibition on which this film is based - VAN GOGH & JAPAN at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam - one can see why. Though Vincent van Gogh never visited Japan it is the country that had the most profound influence on him and his art. One cannot understand Van Gogh without understanding how Japanese art arrived in Paris in the middle of the 19th century and the profound impact it had on artists like Monet, Degas and, above all, Van Gogh.

    Visiting the new galleries of Japanese art in Paris and then creating his own image of Japan – through in-depth research, print collecting and detailed discussions with other artists – Van Gogh’s encounter with Japanese artworks gave his work a new and exciting direction. After leaving Paris for the south of France – to what he thought of as near to a kind of Japan as he could find - the productive and yet troubled years that followed must all be seen in the context of Van Gogh bending Japanese influences to his will and defining himself as a modern artist with clear Asian precursors. In this little known story of Van Gogh’s art we see just how important his study of Japan was. The film travels not only to France and the Netherlands but also to Japan to further explore the remarkable heritage that so affected Van Gogh and made him the artist we know of today.

    In a reimagined 1590, England is a matriarchy. Baptista Minola is seeking to sell off her son Katherine to the highest bidder. Cue an explosive battle of the sexes in this electrically charged love story. Justin Audibert (Snow in Midsummer, The Jew of Malta) turns Shakespeare’s fierce, energetic comedy of gender and materialism on its head to offer a fresh perspective on its portrayal of hierarchy and power.

    'Dispatches on The Red Dress' is a deeply connecting musical essay, uniquely presented in song, poetry, fiddle music and storytelling by twice-BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner, Rowan Rheingans. As a testimony to Rowan's reputation as one of the foremost composers and innovators on today's folk scene, this project has been funded by grants from Arts Council England, PRS Women Make Music and the EDFSS. 

    The show centres around Rowan's German grandmother's stories from her childhood under the Nazi regime, using one true story to explore a rich tapestry of themes including: memory, trauma-recovery, waltzes, fascism, history, handicraft, identity, folk-song and bird-song, family and war. It is at once an urgent and very relevant anti-war piece, which questions our collective handling of 'dark histories' in the present day political climate, as well as an uplifting and poignant celebration of small acts of resistance, transformation, human empathy and hope.

    Romeo and Juliet
    Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan’s 20th-century ballet masterpiece. Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

    Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan

    Music: Sergei Prokofiev

    Approx. 195 minutes (including two intervals)

    "To whom should I complain?"  When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet it remains astonishingly resonant today. Artistic Director, Gregory Doran, directs this new production."

    It is said that a change is as good as a rest, and for Katie Doherty it is both a rest, and a change, that provide the backdrop to her latest album 'And Then'  Back in 2007, Doherty became an award-winning songwriter, and released her debut solo album Bridges to much acclaim - including airplay from BBC Radio 2 - leading her to share stages with the likes of Karine Polwart, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, and Ray Davies. Life however - as it has a habit of doing - got in the way, putting the brakes for the moment on a soaring trajectory.

    It was after the success of November Club’s rural touring musical Beyond The End of the Road, for which Katie composed the score, that a spark was ignited and The Navigators emerged. Shona Mooney on fiddle and vocals (The Shee, former BBC Radio Scotlands Young Traditional Musician of the year)and Dave Gray on melodeon and vocals (Världens Band) elevate Katie’s songs, and the trio often sound much bigger than a three.

    It perhaps should not be a huge surprise then that much of Doherty’s new album is rooted in her keen observation of the concept of change. Whether the focus be on the changing seasons, life circumstances, the passage of time, or the shifting of social attitudes and behaviour, on And Then we see Doherty shine a light on how it feels to be part of a world that can be hard

    “Hers is an ascent worth following… and then some.” - Folk Radio

    “And Then is a timely interval, a brief moment if respite, an oasis of tranquility…thankfully there are those in the world who have the foresight to take stock and recognise whats important” FATEA Magazine

    “Real life has rarely sounded as good.” - NARK Magazine

    “This is lovely!” - Mark Radcliffe

    “And Then is poetic, original and brings a traditional folk style into the 21st Century” - Maverick Magazine

    “And Then, well, play it again. It’s an album of great musicianship to bring you joy and was well worth waiting for” - ArtsDesk.com"
