Commemorating Usain Bolt’s last competitive races at the IAAF games, Robomagic is hosting Jamaica House 2017 at Indigo O2. This unique event will celebrate both the Jamaican way of life and the accomplishments of the nation’s people. It is being produced on behalf of the Jamaican Ministry of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.

The event is showcasing Jamaican artists old and new, as well as UK artistes of Jamaican descent, along with acts from far and wide influenced by Jamaican music. Performances from incredible talent such as Freddie McGregor, Ziggy Marley, Luciano, OMI, Nesbeth, Protoje, Krishane, Stylo G, The Skints, Nadia Rose, Yungen and Melissa Steel, to name a few, will be held across the nine days.

The IAAF World Championships will be screened live on the big screens at the event, so nobody will miss out on the excitement of watching Usain Bolt’s final races. The Jamaica House concerts have been created to provide visitors with the chance to catch the races live each evening during the event and grab mouth-watering and traditional Jamaican food and drink including jerk chicken, patties from Port Royal Patties, tasty Appleton Rum cocktails and Red Stripe beer.

The motto for the Island of Jamaica is ‘Out of many, one people’ and this series of shows absolutely highlights the diversity and excitement of the island’s music scene. Jamaica has traditionally punched above its weight in terms of influence and culture, and these performances at Indigo at The O2 will illustrate just why the island’s musical heritage is still unrivalled.

WALALA x PLAY @ NOW Gallery / until 24th September 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors:
Mon-Fri 10am-7pm
Sat-Sun 11am-4pm

@ NOW Gallery, The Gateway Pavilions, Peninsula Square, Greenwich Peninsula, London SE10 0SQ

Free entry

Renowned digital print designer Camille Walala is showcasing her work as the gallery’s 2017 Design Collaborator with an interactive abstract installation and immersive maze.

Visitors are welcomed to explore, examine and enjoy a labyrinthine network of corridors and enclosed spaces in a ‘temple of wonder’ created by Walala Studio. A key part of this installation will be an imaginative puzzle which invites the solver to identify the inconsistencies between two otherwise identical images. WALALA x PLAY brings this concept off the page and into three- dimensional space, inviting visitors to linger and explore colour, shape and scale, contemplating formidable pattern to find the differences.

The anomalies and asymmetries will generally be discreetly positioned, requiring visitors to scrutinize the space from all angles to complete the puzzle. Secret spots will be found when looking down from the balcony or looking up at the suspended elements. This element of physicality will encourage individuals to become more aware of their bodies, engage their minds and give themselves over to PLAY.

Visitors are encouraged to pass through the gallery and experience a range of spaces, some open, some tight and uncomfortable, some with dead ends. With walls of different heights, passageways of different widths, curved and zigzag paths, the installation addresses the idea of human scale. It ensures that visitors leave with not only a visual impression of the installation, but transformed by the experience of their own passage through it.

Mirrored panels reflect the space back on itself; suspended shapes introduce a feeling of lightness and playful disorientation – the installation is a journey that will challenge, reward and engage the visitor in equal measure.

The waterways of the Greenwich Peninsula, the curve of the Thames, and the internal shapes and angles of the Marks Barfield buildings are referenced and represented in the ideas of flow and reflection that define WALALA x PLAY. The layout of the installation playfully mirrors the shape of the building. The gallery sets the template for the flow of the space.

Ping Pong
Two unique ping pong tables are available in the Peninsula Garden. Get a bat and ball from NOW Gallery reception and play a WALALA game of ping pong.

Mon – Fri 10am – 7pm
Sat – Sun 11am – 4pm

Special event tickets £20

The inaugural Sundance London is finally here! Since it’s beginnings in 1978 as the Utah/US film festival through its name change to Sundance in 1985, the festival has been integral for showcasing and supporting independent filmmaking. 14 films have been selected from the 120 screened at Sundance 2012 in January, to make their UK premieres.

Highlights from today’s schedule include the UK premiere of Safety Not Guaranteed at 9pm: a modern version of the classic madcap romantic comedy. Clever dialogue and outlandish antics, peppered with misfit characters – each one charming yet flawed – are wrapped in a love story tingling with the tantalizing possibility of time travel. In a world where moments are fleeting and soul mates are scarce, it seems that even the simple act of falling in love is never safe. Winner of the Sundance 2012 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award.
