Weekend larks (Nov 17-19)

You're stuck here so you might as well get on with it

Published on November 18th 2011.

Weekend larks (Nov 17-19)

It's all a bit spooky
TOP TIPS: Pretend you are in a Thriller video by going into Wetherspoons at three o'clock in the afternoon”.

When Mr Howard Be Thy Name (crazy name, crazy guy) organises an event you know, if you don't go, your mates will be telling you about it on Monday morning and you'll only be filled with regret.

The Carny Ball is a 70-minute musical and visual extravaganza being held at the Kazimier on Saturday night, so diarise.

It takes the form of a movie with simultaneous live performances from Zombina and the Skeletones, Jimmy Lightfoot, Lovecraft and Howard B Thy Name who also appear in the movie adventure.

Produced by Howard, aka Laird Howard Ashley Storey and Dr. Captain Lee Isserow, the audience will be further entertained by stilt walkers, freaks, magicians, fire breathers, and much more.

Hell's bells.

This is a one off, never to be repeated night of Carny fun, they say. Dress in Carnival mode. Doors open 22.00 – the fun finishes at 04.00  

Carny Ball, Kazimier, Wolstenholme Square.Saturday 19th November at the Kazimier, Liverpool. Tickets £6 from here

Geek is the word
Club Geek Chic bills itself as the night out for Liverpool’s discerning socialites.

That may be very true, but it has been absent for, goodness, two years, so you have probably been discerning in a toilet cubicle somewhere else, you filthy little socialite beast..

Not to worry, we forgive them. Club Geek Chic creators Gemma Aldcroft and Karen Podesta have spent the last two years concentrating on their In Conversation events.

Now they have returned to their roots with a 1980s themed extravaganza and they want you down there, this Saturday night.

You should dress up for this one.

The evening’s entertainment will include Club Geek Chic’s own dance troupe ‘Hot Chrome’ , up and coming electro-pop duo Stereo Electric Mistress and superstar DJ, Che ‘The Hitman and Hair’ Burnley.  There will also be an extra treat at the end of the night to give the evening that true 80s magic, they say.

Club Geek Chic 80s Night, Liner Hotel, Lord Nelson Street, Liverpool, Saturday 19th November from 8.30pm – 1am.  Tickets are £12 each.

A Clockwork Orange

A nasty little shocker, or a profound exploration of state power and free will?
Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange may be 40 years old but its description of a corrupt state and bankrupt civil society have never seemed more familiar. In a world like this, how is the nation's youth to behave?
To survive, you have to be feral: violent, drunk, drugged and debauched.

“What's it going to be then, eh?”
You choose. Volcano Theatre's takes on Burgess's inventive, disturbing little masterpiece fifty years after it was written.
A Clockwork Orange, Friday 18th November,  Unity Theatre, Hope Palace, Tickets from £12
Indian thing
Architecture and dance have more in common than many of us think. Yeah, right.
Nirmanika-866950155Erm, well: both manipulate space, both create sculpted forms. Architecture and dance come together in a dynamic way with Nirmanika, a new dance production whose name means “architectonics” in Sanskrit.
Specifically, Nirmanika explores various aspects of Indian temple architecture through the medium of Bharatanatyam dance. Through Bharatanatyam’s unique movements and expression, Nirmanika touches on concepts of geometry, space, structure, form, philosophy, history and more in five unique and beautifully choreographed dance pieces. #
This exciting international collaboration presented as part of The Cornerstone Festival features dancers from Singapore and Britain along, but with live music. 
Sorry you asked now, aren't you?
Nirmankika, Saturday 19th November, The Capstone Theatre, Liverpool Hope University, Tickets from £8
