Madonna: Truth or Dare 
US 1991, 18, 120 mins, documentary/ musical

Celebrating International Women's Day.

 

A 1991 critically acclaimed documentary directed by Alek Keshishian chronicling the life of Madonna during her 1990 Blond Ambition World Tour, kicking off in Japan during its rainy season, then traveling to North America with significant stops in Los Angeles, Detroit, Toronto and New York. The film is a behind-the-scenes look at Madonna's relationships with her dancers and crew, her then-boyfriend Warren Beatty, and her family and friends, achieving an intimate glimpse into the boundary-pushing singer's drive and individuality. Initially planned to be a traditional concert film, Keshishian was so impressed with the backstage life that he persuaded Madonna to make it the focus of the film.

Madonna served as executive producer, the film being edited to be in black-and-white, in order to emulate cinéma vérité, while the performance scenes are in colour. 

‘The 1991 hit film gave us the pop star at her most open, inviting us into her uncensored world, a far cry from the tightly protected celeb docs we see today' Guy Lodge - The Guardian

Exhibition On Screen: Painting the Modern Garden - Monet to Matisse

Claude Monet was an avid horticulturist and arguably the most important painter of gardens in the history of art, but he was not alone. Great artists like Van Gogh, Bonnard, Sorolla, Sargent, Pissarro and Matisse all saw the garden as a powerful subject for their art. These great artists, along with many other famous names, feature in an innovative and extensive exhibition from the Royal Academy of Art, London.

From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists’ gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical and widely travelled journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract color, decorative design and utopian ideas. Guided by passionate curators, artists and garden enthusiasts, this remarkable collection of Impressionists, Post-Impressionists, and avant-garde artists of the early twentieth century will reveal the rise of the modern garden in popular culture and the public’s enduring facination with gardens today.

Ireland/UK 2023, 15, 79 mins, sci-fi/war

LOLA is a 2023 independent Irish–British ‘found footage’ science fiction film directed by Irish director Andrew Legge, starring Emma Appleton and Stefanie Martini. It received universal acclaim and holds 100% approval from the Rotten Tomatoes website. The film even got permission from the David Bowie estate to use his songs, which is very rarely granted. It won the Méliès d'Or for Best European Film and earned the highest opinion by Mark Kermode who interviewed director Andrew Legge at the BFI. 

Shot on 16mm, the film  tells the story of two women who have invented a machine that intercepts future television broadcasts. Fionnuala Halligan of Screen Daily wrote that it is ‘conceptually sharp, with wonderful period sound work‘.

'Thrillingly inventive Irish sci-fi thriller' The Guardian  ★★★★

The Harper Trio

The Harper Trio, described as the new voice of contemporary UK jazz, is led by electric harpist Maria Christina Harper. While flirting with the avant-garde and psychedelia, it creates an exciting, inventive, spiritual free jazz sound. It’s where East meets West as Harper's compositions build on her Greek and Egyptian heritage.

Electric jazz harpist and composer Maria-Christina Harper is reinventing the sound of the harp in the jazz world. With her anarchic spirit and an interest in exploring what the harp can do, rather than exploring its traditional sounds, she presents her instrument in new and exciting ways. Combining her traditional music roots with free jazz she creates an irresistible, compelling sound cosmos.

It’s where East meets West.

 

Maria-Christina has gathered two outstanding, highly acclaimed players to form The Harper Trio for whom she has specifically composed 7 original tracks. Featuring drummer’s-drummer Evan Jenkins and the dynamic saxophonist Josephine Davies (Instrumentalist of The Year, 2019 Parliamentary Jazz
Awards), the trio released Passing By, a powerful debut recording of shimmering soundscapes and psychedelic sounds that flirt with the avant-garde, creating an inventive slice of spiritual jazz. ‘Passing By’ was released on 27 October 2023 and was launched at The Royal Albert Hall on 2 November.


Earlier this year, The Harper Trio released the album’s first single, ‘In Cairo/Grandma’s Coat’. The track enjoyed significant radio play and critical praise establishing a new voice at the cutting edge of contemporary jazz.

All three members of The Harper Trio are part of the musical exodus to Hastings and is where they met. It is also the place that inspired Standing Alone, the second single to be taken from the album; an unapologetically slow, yielding contemplative piece of music and the album ‘s only ballad. The grace, beauty and the meditative nature of the composition “reflects the expansive vistas
and seascapes of Hastings’s East Cliff where I so often find myself alone” says Maria Christina, “it’s about those moments of deep reflection when we question who we are and appreciate what we have”.

The Royal Ballet 2023-24 Live Cinema Season: MacMillan Celebrated

The Royal Ballet celebrates the breadth of Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan’s one-act ballets.

 

Danses Concertantes, commissioned by Ninette de Valois in 1955, was MacMillan’s first major work. An early sign of the incredible artistic output that would follow, the work’s critical success spurred MacMillan to abandon performing in favour of choreography. It is followed by Different Drummer, MacMillan’s complex and haunting balletic interpretation of Woyzeck, Georg Büchner's play about a soldier’s descent into madness.

 

The mixed programme concludes with Requiem, his 1976 work for Stuttgart Ballet, created in memory of its late artistic director, MacMillan’s friend and former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer John Cranko.
