Faust (Gounod)

24 Jun at Kino-Teatr, St. Leonards-on-Sea


Why Will?

One man, one Bard, 20 speeches, 20 circles, 20 questions. Performed outdoors at the C16th Half House Farm in Three Oaks, Hastings, this is a one man show that explores Shakespeare's most famous speeches. Bowler Crab's Artistic Director, Stephen John answers twenty questions, the most prominent being "Why Will?" In an effort to answer why BC are a Shakespeare only company, Stephen presents his case to twenty socially distanced circles with twenty speeches from his eight years of running his Theatre Company. Presented in two 45 minute acts, Stephen presents snippets from Shakespeare's finest works: from Hamlet to Benedick, to Romeo to Bottom, to Caesar to Jaques. Tragedy and comedy lace this charismatic and personal performance as Stephen fights, feasts, frights, fakes and falls about laughing in every effort to share his passion for Shakespeare.

Small circles are 2m across , large circles are 3m across; all circles are 1.5m distance away from their neighbours. We still don't know what restrictions will end up being like throughout this summer but we aren't socially distancing because we have to, we're offering social distancing because we want all our playgoers to feel safe. Free program with every ticket, we will not be running a bar but safe toilet facilities are always available. Hay bales(s) are provided within each circle.

Allo'allo

Join Rene, Edith and many others well-known characters at Caf Rene!

Based on the hugely successful British television series, which ran for seven seasons, this uproarious comedy relates the adventures of a hapless caf owner, Rene, in occupied France. You can see all of your favourite TV characters in the flesh, including Rene's tone-deaf wife Edith, Major-General von Klinkerhoffen and the Gestapo officer Herr Flick! He and his wife have stashed a priceless portrait stolen by the Nazis in a sausage in their cellar, where two British airmen are also hiding until the Resistance can repatriate them. Communications with London using the wireless that is disguised as a cockatoo add to the many embarrassments this intrepid proprietor endures in the company of his patrons. News that the Fhrer is scheduled to visit the town inspires tricksters disguised as Hitler to frequent the caf. Meanwhile, Rene summons all the wit he can muster to save his caf and his life.

Austerity All-dayer

austerity records are honoured to present a day of music at The Piper, Saint Leonards. Daisy Coburn Daisy’s musical journey started years ago under the saccharine guise of conveyor belt indie pop, Daisy Dares You, though short-lived, it crafted the road she has been on after rejecting it entirely. Voyaging through genres playing in different bands in different cities (Pink Lizards, Bad For Lazarus, Clever Thing where they spent several months developing their unique sound by experimenting with loops, synths and samples via home recordings. They released their debut EP 'Dream Button' digitally and as a limited vinyl pressing in July 2016 and have since played alongside the likes of Wolf Alice, Lets Eat Grandma and Bat for Lashes at Dreamland Margate, as well as supporting slots for STATS, Indoor Pets, Bloody Knees, The Eskimo Chain, Two Tribes, LELO and Merlin Tonto. Their singles 'Miles Per Yeah', 'Shockwave', Do It' and latest release ‘Daisy Chain’ have all featured on BBC Introducing Kent. Seadog Seadog is the project of Brighton-based musician and songwriter Mark Benton and Tom Chadd and their eclectic troupe of performers that create dream-pop songs. They combine a variety of influences into a myriad sound of lullabies with anthemic electric and acoustic samples and textures. The band are currently working on their forthcoming second album “Internal Noise” at Bella Union Studios, Brighton. Recordings began deep in the 2020 lockdown and have been expanded upon in the studio with Jack Wolter of Penelope Isles on production duties. The album features Jack Wolter on drums, backing vocals and additional guitars, while sister Lily Wolter, also from Penelope Isles, guests on the record. Seadog have previously worked with Phill Brown (Audio Engineer for Talk Talk, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Bob Marley) to complete their debut album "Cabin Fever Blues", released in 2018. Seadog have had songs playlisted on Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing The South, on which they have also performed a live session. They have also been selected and reviewed numerous times for Tom Robison's Fresh on the net blog. The new single Tidal Wave was selected for his BBC Introducing mixtape on 6 Music. Snayx Founded in late 2018, SNAYX have taken the scene by storm having supported international acts such as D-Boy, Kid Kapichi, Nova Twins and more. The British punk rock duo hailing from the South East, are renowned for ferocious live sets and visceral, hard-hitting bass riffs. Their upcoming, debut album, ‘Weaponized Youth’ is the cataclysmic embodiment of Brexit Britain. Recorded at Brighton Electric studios with producer Josh Harrison (Royal Blood, The Cure, Blood Red Shoes), the record is a scathing assessment of the past quinquennial, but also reminisces upon the wild misadventures of British youth. Marked as ‘ones to watch’ by Modern Age Music, the serpents have performed to sold out crowds across London and Sussex. SNAYX are set to shake up the scene in 2021 and are certain to bring Snake-like charm and swagger to stages across the UK. Tape Runs Out Formed in Cambridge in 2012, Tape Runs Out combine acoustic and electronic sounds to craft their unique fusion of melodic, dreamy, eclectic sounds. Expect exquisite harmonies, inventive structures and distinctive instrumentation in their shoegaze-y, indie, post-rock blend. Winter Gardens Taking influence from 80's post-punk, Factory, Rough Trade, 4AD, Creation era bands, Winter Gardens have developed their own 'dream punk' sound, all the ethereal haze of shoegaze and dreampop with the energy of punk, their current set will take you through a cascade of shimmering tones, hazy melodic vocals and raw energy. Winter Gardens have managed to secure support slots for Modern English, Petal,The Wave Pictures, Mammoth Penguins, Say Sue Me, Magic Wands, Charles Howl and opened last year's Rockaway headlined by Gary Numan and Echo & The Bunnymen. This is an 18+ event.

The Flaming Lips

Melodically, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as “Psychiatric Explorations of the Fetus with Needles”, “Free Radicals (A Hallucination of the Christmas Skeleton Pleading with a Suicide Bomber)” and “Yeah, I Know It’s a Drag… But Wastin’ Pigs Is Still Radical”. They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne’s signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the “50 Bands to See Before You Die”. This is an 18+ event.

Alan Dixon

The House Of House is BACK and we present a breakthrough star of House, Disco & Italo vibes Alan Dixon!

Alan Dixon - Tracksource LIVE! mix

Alan Dixon "Acid Drop" played by Gerd Janson at Printworks London

You know you’re doing something very, very right when you get regular Radio 1 airplay and you’re signed to Running Back, Permanent Vacation and Correspondant.

Then again, Alan Dixon has long been a name on the edge of big-time success, marked out as one to watch by industry taste-makers including Mixmag, Defected and Traxsource.

After making a name with his disco edits and soulfuric gospel tracks, he’s made the move into pulsing big-room Italo anthems that are equal parts disco strut and peak-time breakdowns.

With an established new peak-time synth sound championed by Danny Howard and Annie Mac, and Pete Tong naming Alan’s ‘Edge Of Forever’ release as his Essential New Tune, Alan is finally breaking through and getting noticed by all the right people.

With support from Chill DJs, Altitude360 DJ, Mikx & Khaki and Gina-D

Luisa Omielan: God is A Woman

"How different would the world be if women’s stories had been included more in the Bible? Did you know that Adam had a first wife before Eve? Her name was Lilith and she left Adam because she wanted to do reverse cow girl and he would only do missionary - they didn’t mention THAT in the creation myth." At a time of pandemics and global warming, we all turn to spirituality for hope and purpose, so let's hear about the true meaning of Christmas, Jesus and cunnilingus, courtesy of BAFTA breakthrough act winning Luisa Omielan - now that’s a Sunday school we all would have stayed awake in! Fresh from a successful Off-Broadway run, comedian Luisa Omielan tours the UK with her highly anticipated God is a Woman show. Luisa already has three groundbreaking hit shows under her belt. First, she asked "What Would Beyonce Do?! " (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!), then she asked "Am I Right Ladies?!" and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views. Then she turned to politics and got a show on the BBC entitled "Politics for Bitches". So the next logical step was for Luisa to bring her unique genre of comedy to religion - expect Mary Magdalene and dick jokes. Luisa has been featured in The Guardian, The Radio Times, Forbes, Vogue, The Metro, Stylist Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Telegraph and countless other publications. She’s been nominated two years in a row for Best Comedy Show at the Melbourne International Festival and loves taking her universal shows around the world. Luisa is the first comedian to be acknowledged with a BAFTA Breakthrough award. Luisa has created a unique genre of comedy that’s a heart-wrenching journey; part rave and part rally. Her shows are uplifting, thought provoking, ahead-of-the-times and damn funny. She counts Dawn French, Lenny Henry, Richard Curtis and Ruby Wax as super fans. And yes, Luisa will be accompanied on stage by her partner in crime, Bernie - the funniest Bernese mountain dog on the block.

‘The biggest stand up hit of the decade’ - The Guardian

‘She should be put on the national curriculum’ - The Scotsman

Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

BLOG are delighted to have been granted limited license to perform the adult cast version of this fantastic musical, and to have an amazing production team.

One of the most enduring and exuberant shows of all time, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is set, according to Tim Rice's playful lyrics, "Way, way back many centuries ago, not long after the Bible began".

This all singing, all dancing extravaganza follows the story of Jacob's favourite son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, Joseph meets the Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the advances of Potiphar's wife. While imprisoned, Joseph discovers his ability to interpret dreams and soon finds himself in front of the mighty Pharaoh. Joseph's solution to Egypt's famine elevates him to Pharaoh's right-hand man and reunites him with his family.

Combining country and western, ballads and calypso with Elvis-style rock, the show includes songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice that have become unforgettable pop and musical theatre standards, including Any Dream Will Do, Close Every Door To Me, Jacob and Sons, There's One More Angel In Heaven and Go, Go, Go Joseph.
