Circus, street and theatre mix where glamour and sleaze rub shoulders in this diverse trip around the streets of Soho.
SOHO – just one word conjures up London’s world famous district full of sounds, vibes and its unique buzz: a place filled with gloriously diverse characters. SOHO – It’s not just a place, it’s a state of mind….
The show has a seriously crazy and multi talented international cast tell the fast-paced story of a young man’s walk on the wild side, as the colourful characters he meets reveal an unexpected and darkly fantastical world, where glamour and sleaze rub shoulders.
Featuring soaring aerial acrobatics on moving trapezes take the energetic world class performers on a rollercoaster ride. With the pulsating sound of the underground, and the music scene that is Soho’s heartbeat = 21st century indie, buskers, the burlesque of the 50s, the 60s love and peace Carnaby Street generation, disco and punk of the 70s, Cool Britannia pop of the 80s and rave of the 90s – SOHO has THE iconic soundtrack that is….Soho
Do Ho Suh meticulously constructs proportionally exact replicas of dwelling places, architectural features, or household appliances from stitched planes of translucent, coloured polyester fabric.
In exquisitely made works, Do Ho Suh explores contemporary arrangements of space and the unstable boundaries of its categorisation along lines of individuality and collectivity, physicality and immateriality, mobility and fixity. Influenced by his peripatetic existence – leaving his native South Korea to study and live in the United States, he has more recently moved between New York, Seoul and London – an enduring theme of the artist’s practice is the connection between the individual and the group across global cultures. The multiplicity of individuality is tested through meditative processes of repetition: whether interlinked along a lattice of fishing nets, amassed into monumental tornado-like forms, absent from ranks of empty uniforms, or present in every yearbook photo taken at the artist’s high school over 60 years, the artist uses the reproduced human figure to explore sensitively, and with spectacular formal effect, the ways in which personal space inherently extends into the collective sphere.
Everyone’s a winner at Miss Behave’s late night smash hit show. With a stellar cast of comic genius, and a fresh take on an evening out – part Gameshow, party Variety show, part Disco. audiences can expect games and prizes (from the rubbish to the fantastic), acts (from the sublime to the superb) and guaranteed stupidity and silliness in this deliberately lo-fi, silly and audience-centric bag of fun.
Welcome to the playground for illegitimate entertainment.
Featuring: Earl Okin, Matt Hennem, Bruce Airhead, Raymond & Mr Timpkins, The Two Wrongies, Kalki the Hula Girl, Paul Morocco and Skate Naked.
