                     LIVE ART
MY ARM- TIM CROUCH The Basement, Brighton, 16 & 17 April,
Doors: 7.30pm, Entry: £8 / £6. Told through performance, film (by
Chris Dorley-Brown) and animation of everyday objects, My Arm is
the story of an empty gesture. It‟s the confession of a man who has
lived for thirty years by the courage of his lack of conviction. In that
process he‟s become a celebrated medical specimen and an icon of
the New York art scene. It‟s about modern art, bloody-mindedness
and how the things we do when we‟re ten stick with us for life. Having
toured internationally since 2003, these are its first public
performances in Brighton. A rare treat. www.thebasement.uk.com

SCRATCH! The Basement, Brighton, 22nd April, Doors: 7.30pm,

WORLD OF WRONG, THE TWO WRONGIES 7th & 8th May. 7.30
pm £8. This is the upfront, personal and schizophrenically chaotic
world of The Two Wrongies. Onstage its show time, glitz and
glamour, dance and comedy. Offstage it‟s all talk: fast, furious,
honest, and at times, very rude. The Two Wrongies invite you to
glimpse into their world…a world that reveals an underbelly of murk
beneath the glistening spotlight. Celebrating and re-interpreting the
classic double act in an unrestrained and honest female sort of way,
The Two Wrongies subvert the Locker Room mentality in a brave
expose of the female psyche. Their onstage relationship, playful
rivalry and absurdist humour is not for the faint-hearted! Please note,
this performance features material of an explicit nature. Over 18s
only. Info and tickets: http://www.brightonfestival.org/

KIM NOBLE WILL DIE at The Basement, Brighton. 7th & 8th May.
9pm, £10. Life is tough. Kim Noble will help you get through it whilst
laying bare his plans for departing this world. Forced to assess his
meagre legacy as his contemporaries become more and more
successful, what Kim bequeaths to the world has become of utmost
importance to him. In a series of benevolent acts, audience members
are written into Kim‟s Last Will and Testament, provided with guides
to surviving terrorist plots on the underground and, perhaps most
touching of all, containers of Kim‟s sperm will be available to female
audience members in a bid to populate the world with genius once he
is dead. Please note this performance features material of an explicit
nature. Over 18s only. Info and tickets:

17th May, 8pm Tues 18th & Wed 19th May, 6.00pm & 8.00pm, £8.
Limited Capacity. Booking essential. When you are miles away from
the place of your birth, can you ever feel at home? Confused,
fatalistic, loyal, Japanese. This solo show for a small audience tells
the story of Sachi, a young woman, and her comedic, yet sincere
search to find a „home‟. Performed up close, personal, and partly
promenade, Flying Eye‟s magical theatricality invites people of all
backgrounds to celebrate their own journey in finding home. „This
magical 45-minute piece made us feel like the lucky few to catch a
glimpse of a mini masterpiece...‟ OneTaste Cutting the Cord is

Foundation. Info and tickets: http://www.brightonfestival.org/

HOW DO YOU LIKE MY LANDSCAPE at The Basement,
Brighton.17th May 9pm 18th & 19th May, 7pm & 9pm, £10. Limited
Capacity. Booking essential. “And God felt great and powerful and
He thought some animation should be very cute and He ordered little
animals, first a brown antlered deer, then two spitters or little deer,
one must be dotted, they were so beautiful” (Genesis). In „How do
you like my landscape‟ Manah Depauw and Bernard Van Eeghem
use sharp imagination, a miniature landscape and fake plastic
animals to redefine the place of the human body within the history of
the earth and society. The four-episode spectacle takes place around
a landscape where apparent tranquillity only serves to camouflage
the terrible beasts of desires that we prefer to remain hidden. The
audience follows a world that transforms and develops through over
four ages... Info and tickets: http://www.brightonfestival.org/

THE MOMENT I SAW YOU I KNEW I COULD LOVE YOU at The
Basement, Brighton. 21st -23rd May, 5pm, 6.10pm, 7.20pm, 8.30pm,
£10. „This is how I dream it. This is how it feels. And I am not a sailor.
I cannot steer a craft. I cannot tie a reef knot. I cannot swim. But still,
this is how it ends. I am out here with the lost mariners, the
castaways, the shipwrecked and the sea-swallowed.‟ A new Curious
performance made in collaboration with film-maker Andrew Kötting,
composer Graeme Miller and performers Claudia Barton and Joseph
Young. It is about gut feelings; fight, flight and freeze reactions;
impulse, love and undefended moments. Set in the belly of a whale.

LATE AT TATE 9 April, Tate Britain, London. Tickets: FREE.
Shards of Utopia is an event incorporating live art, music, installation
and discussion. Situating itself in a post-utopian world in which we
struggle to accept the notion of a holistic, universal idea of utopia,

and hopeful past continue to be powerfully resonant for our present.

WHAT IF…FESTIVAL Brighton and London, until 11th April. A
festival drawing from work in film, dance, live and visual art co-
curated by 5 artists with a background in dance, visual art and film-
making. What if… is the second in a series of festivals initiated by
Independent Dance seeking to encourage an expanded perception of
what might be seen as dance work. What if… takes place throughout
the Siobhan Davies Studios with affiliated talks in Brighton,
and is comprised of installed film and video works, film screenings
and live performance. The festival responds, through the perspective
of dance artists working with the moving image, to recent thinking
about choreography as an expanded field - of the choreographic as
something that can be separated from dance and dancing and that
involves unique ways of thinking to do with structure and a sense of
embodiment. Info and tickets: http://www.whatiffestival.co.uk/

songs, whether they‟re fast or slow, feel like they‟re bursting with
energy and wisdom. The Travelling Band‟s live show is a feel-good
tour-de-force. Supported by Lucky Jim, "bruised acoustic
melancholia" UNCUT **** Info: www.thebasement.uk.com
