3804_Hoops-740_R.jpg#667D18[6]Dralion is a classic Cirque du Soleil production that has received international acclaim and astonished more than 8 million people worldwide since it premiered in Montreal in 1999. Dralion features an international cast of 50 performers, clowns, singers and musicians from 15 different countries.

The amazing 2-hour production features gravity-defying acrobatics which will wow and blow away audiences of all ages. Spectators will be at the edge of their seats when fearless aerialists bounce off trampolines using the wall as diving board and landing pad.

In the Crossed wheel act, the artist masters this unique acrobatic apparatus, turning, spinning and manoeuvring the wheel; while in the spectacular aerial hoop act, the aerialist is suspended high above the stage while performing some evocative choreography.

Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to more than 100 million spectators in more than 300 cities in over forty countries on six continents.

We are running a competition for you to win a pair of tickets to the show on Wednesday 4th June 2014.

David Robilliard: The Yes No Quality of Dreams @ ICA until 15th June 2014

Life Isn't Good It's Excellent 1987TIME AND PLACE:

11:00-18:00 (Thur until 21:00)

@ Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, London SW1Y 5AH

Tickets: included in a £1 one day membership

The intimate paintings combine figurative elements with text taken directly from Robilliard’s own poems. Coded and knowing, his evocative prose alludes to intimate sexual encounters and passing infatuations that ultimately conjure an image of 1980s queer London.

Robilliard moved to London in 1975 and would become close friends with Gilbert & George, momentarily appearing in the film The World of Gilbert & George (1981). Throughout the 1980s Robilliard published books and postcards of his poetry, as well as contributing to publications such as The Fred, Square Peg and The Manipulator. Robilliard was described by Gilbert & George as ‘the new master of the modern person’.

Robilliard’s paintings appeared in numerous gallery exhibitions during his lifetime, as well as exhibiting in venues such as London’s Hippodrome and L’Escargot restaurant. In 1993, a major retrospective was held at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam.

“Like mushrooms babies grow in rubbish. They construct themselves from rotting leaves, coke cans, syringes and empty packets of monster munch and wait for their parents to find them. I know this to be the truth. Because I found one.”

An odyssey of love and loss, pain and imagination, Debris is an unreal journey through two disturbed minds. Enter the dark and chaotic world of orphaned teenagers Michael and Michelle. They are desperate to piece together their story; work out where they came from and find hope and meaning amongst life’s debris.

Abigail Graham directs the first London revival of the play since its première ten years ago. Her production follows the success of her critically acclaimed Molly Sweeney at The Print Room last year, which subsequently transferred to the Lyric Belfast before a Northern Ireland tour. Debris marks the much-anticipated second collaboration between Graham and designer Signe Beckmann following Molly Sweeney.

Friday Late: Synthetic Aesthetics @ Victoria and Albert Museum / Friday 25th April 2014

Friday Late - Synthetic Aesthetics at Victoria and Albert MuseumTIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 18:30–22:00

@ Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), Cromwell Road, South Kensington, London SW7 2RL

Free entry

Friday Late turns V&A into a living laboratory, bringing science and design together for one night of events, workshops and installations, each exploring our biological future.

The evening will feature the book launch of Synthetic Aesthetics: Investigating Synthetic Biology’s Designs on Nature (MIT Press). The book marks an important point in the development of the emerging discipline of synthetic biology, sitting at the intersection between design and science. The book is a result of research funded by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and the National Science Foundation in the US.

Can we design life itself? The emerging field of synthetic biology crosses the boundary between science and design to manipulate the stuff of life. These new designers use life as a programmable material, creating new organisms with radical applications from materials to machines.

All events are free and places are first come first served.
