Coffee Concert: Naomi Burrell (violin) and Zosia Jagodzinska (cello)

Sunday September 27th at 11am

Naomi and Zosia first met playing in Raph Clarkson’s Dissolute Society, an ensemble fusing free improvisation, jazz, baroque music and spoken word. Since then, their versatility and kinship has brought about a busy schedule of recordings and performances together in an eclectic range of ensembles and sessions. Highlights include; David Hockney’s Tate Britain Retrospective Exhibition, numerous film scores, and contemporary jazz, folk and pop albums.


In 2019 they formed a duo to explore their love of repertoire from the Baroque era to the present day, as well as folk songs and improvisation.


Drawing on progressive ideas of movement and expression from thinkers including Rudolf Laban, Jacques Dalcroze and Moshe Feldenkrais, they have shared their approach through creative residencies, performances and educational and community settings in the UK and Norway. 


So far they have performed works by Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and Karin Govaerts and are currently working on a concert series and album recording to include the Ravel Sonate and new commissions from acclaimed composers Deborah Pritchard and Dan Samsa.


They will present a programme of music for violin and cello from classical to folk music including Bach, Bartok, Edmund Finnis and some improvisation.

Hope Gap

Sunday September 27th at 2pm & Wednesday September 30th at 7.30pm

UK 2019, 12A, 140Mins - Drama Romance


Set and filmed in Seaford, with its white limestone cliffs and a spot called Hope Gap, this intimate, loving and intense drama is written and directed by William Nicholson OBE and is based on his own life experience, when his parents’ marriage broke down after 33 years. The twice Oscar nominated director (Shadowlands, Gladiator) views his latest work as a story mid-point between Brief Encounter and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Schoolteacher Edward (Bill Nighy) has fallen out of love with his perpetually critical, intellectually rigorous wife Grace (Annette Bening). When their adult son Jamie (Josh O’Connor) comes for a visit, Edward reveals his plans to end the marriage and move out, forcing Jamie to act as a mediator between his muddled father and raging, wounded mother.


Last year Kino-Teatr had the privilege of being permitted to have a single screening of the film prior to its general release in August 2020. The film enjoyed fantastic reviews from the audience. It is miles away from the works William Nicholson is best know for (he has also adapted Les Miserables into a movie and wrote the scripts for First Knight and Grey Owl).


At Saturday’s 6.30pm screening, William Nicholson will attend Kino-Teatr for a Q&A.
