Some things for the weekend (Jan 13-15)

Friday: Situationist Sense and Sensibility
It's mood movie watching.

Sense and Sensibility, published in 1811, was Austen's first published work under a pseudonym. Take yourself back to southwest England circa 1792 and experience the life and loves of the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, daughters of their father Henry's second wife, Mrs. Dashwood.

Friday: The Art Of Falling Apart
Bringing their trademark ferociously-paced, wilfully anarchic comic theatre to a piece of intricate storytelling about how we all cope with just being alive, The Art Of Falling Apart sees a number of out-of-kilter lives interweave within a city on the edge of badly organised chaos.

ArttFollowing on from previous sell-out shows such as Insomnobabble, Dark Grumblings and The Friendship Experiment, Big Wow breeze into Unity Theatre this January with this brand new comedy.

Performed by Tim Lynskey and Matt Rutter, scripted and directed by Robert Farquhar (Dead Heavy Fantastic) with soundscapes by Simon James (Wizards of Twiddly).
*The Art Of Falling Apart, Unity Theatre, Hope Place, Friday January 13, from 8pm, tickets £10


Sunday: Make plans for Nigel
For over quarter of a century, Nigel Kennedy has been acknowledged as one of the world’s leading violin virtuosos and is, without doubt one of the most important violinists Britain has ever produced.

His masterful technique, unique talent and mass appeal have brought fresh perspectives to both the classical and contemporary repertoire. We thought it was Vanessa May, but only in a tight frock and heels.

Kennedy was attacked for his approach to classical music by John Drummond in 1991, who called him "a Liberace for the Nineties" and criticised his "ludicrous clothes and grotesque, self-invented accent."

Whether you buy into the bad-boy image of theviolin virtuoso or not, you can still enjoy his music at the Philharmonic Hall. This special performance feature members of Nigel Kennedy’s band and Orchestra of Life; as well as his new composition, the Four Elements, Kennedy will perform his new interpretation of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
*Nigel Kennedy, Philharmonic Hall, Hope Street, Sunday January 15, from 7.30pm, tickets from £39.50

By gad the Philharmonic tickets are more expensive than the last time I saw Nigel Kennedy there - mind you it was in the 1980s. He was still wearing white tie in those days.

Fancied that at The Kazimier tonight. Alas, my work commitments still restrict my weekend fun.
