University of Plymouth Choral Society and Sinfonia Summer Concert

For this concert, the University of Plymouth Choral Society and Sinfonia have chosen three contrasting works of Mozart, and a favourite Bruckner motet.

Mozart’s delightful string serenade Eine Kleine Nacht Musik precedes his setting of Ave Verum Corpus – a motet that portrays redemptive meaning of suffering. Bruckner paid homage to this work in his own Locus Iste. Mozart’s Requiem – in the portentous key of D minor – is haunting and powerful.

The programme is led by Musical Director Alice Dennis, BEM.

Programme: Mozart - Requiem Bruckner - Locus Iste Mozart - Eine...

In a world where data is as valuable as land, how vigilantly are we protecting our most prized assets, and how much of ourselves is available on the open market?

By sharing our personal preferences, thumbprints and 3D face scans how easily can we be tracked and influenced and who is watching on the other side of the telescreen?

In 'The Unknown Knowns', Plymouth-based curator Vickie Fear brings together artists...

Film: Imperfect Orchestra – Metamorphosis

Imperfect Orchestra (IO) presents Metamorphosis, a short film exploring transformations through experimentation and abstraction in this contemporary reimagining of Franz Kafka's 1915 novella. IO's first foray into self-production of moving image uses the prism of 21st-century life and its many distortions to explore our cultural and societal values.

Continuing the use of live soundtrack, but with the inclusion of experimental live sound design, the film considers how these very values have transformed over time, and how they exert an almost farcical pressure upon all of...

Performance: Macbeth | Director's Cut

Arresting, untraditional Shakespeare with powerful performances, striking design and sensory surprises! We have stripped back action and character to zoom in on the dynamics of the killer couple, tracking their murderous ambitions, escalating anxieties and disintegrating bonds against a backdrop of sensual pleasure and normalised violence. Expect a boisterous, playful Macbeth with ribald humour and a muscular undertow of menace. This production is ideal for anyone interested in both the play itself and in contemporary performance techniques.

“The extreme theatre of Brecht, agit-...

Talk: Recalling Revolt: Popular Contestations of Egypt’s ‘Arab Spring’

Dr Dina Rezk lectures in Middle Eastern History at the University of Reading. She has researched the revolutions that swept across Iraq, Syria and Yemen, three devastating Arab-Israeli wars and moves towards an uneasy peace between Egypt and Israel in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Dina has looked at formative events, individuals and themes that have shaped the modern Middle East, from 'Nasserism' to political Islam. Her recent work concerns the latest upheavals of the 'Arab Spring' across the Middle East, and she has briefed UK and US government departments on...

Film: An American Werewolf in London (1981)

MONDO MONDAY presents a Halloween special. Mondo Monday and Halloween go together like ghosts and Ghoulies, so, finally, mighty Mondo is claiming this holiday as its own and delivering a ‘transformative’ slice of prime lycanthrope action (that’s werewolves folks!) with this stone cold classic. So, if certain parts of your well watched VHS copy have started to go all fuzzy then come on down and see it as nature intended, on a big screen. And remember, "stay off the moors”!

Director: John Landis Cast: David Naughton, Griffin Dunne, Jenny Agutter. Running time: 93 mins Cert: 18...
