FOR SINCE A WOMAN, 23 June, 8pm

Rambert’s Simone Damberg Würtz collaborates with curator/photographer Dolly Brown to create a new contemporary dance work, ‘For since a woman’. For Since a Woman proposes a novel way of experiencing dance, free from the traditional divide between performer and audience. There will be no stage; no assigned seating. As visitors move around the Grade-I listed church of St. John on Bethnal Green, they will pass through the work itself.

TROPIC OF CANCER, Tuesday 28 February, 8pm

“Tropic of Cancer deal with a romanticism that’s curdled into a profound and unending depression, with no manic upswings in sight to relieve the darkness. It’s all the better for being so uncompromisingly bleak.

Fay Hield & The Hurricane Party, 13 October, 7pm

A singer who seems to have been born knowing how to carry a tune, but with the rarer gift of knowing how to go straight to the heart of a song, Fay Hield is “one of folk music’s most pre-eminent modern voices” (MOJO). Fay was the brain behind The Full English, an academic archive project sponsored by the English Folk Dance and Song Society. For the first time many of the finest early 20th century folksong collections were brought together and to celebrate this Fay developed a supergroup of folk performers, touring for two years, winning Best Group and Best Album at the 2013 BBC Folk...
