HEDDA GABLER - REVIEWS

Posted: Tuesday 7th March 2017

HEDDA GABLER - REVIEWS

Hedda Gabler, broadcasting to The Cut on Thursday 9th of March, is recieving shining reviews. Here are a select few:

Ivo van Hove’s production underlines the aestheticism. Jan Versweyveld’s design is an enormous white box, at points flushed golden with light. Everyone on stage could be an installation in an unforgiving art gallery.

Full review on The Guardian

[...]if I wasn’t a Wilsonite – I certainly am now; she is sensational. Sensational might suggest “showy”, but Wilson’s gift is to keep us watching when she is almost a bystander.

Full review on The Telegraph

Rather than smoothing Ibsen’s text into contemporary speech, Patrick Marber’s new version honors the original: strangely stiff, slightly formal and vaguely unsettling as a result. The people are recognizable but also off-kilter. They exist in a play — actors in character on a stage — and Van Hove’s calculated choreography never loses sight of that.

Full review on Variety

Hedda Gabler is showing at The Cut on Thursday 9th March at 7pm. Tickets can be bought online here or by calling the Box Office on 0300 3033 211

THINKING FAST AND SLOW

Posted: Friday 3rd March 2017

THINKING FAST AND SLOW

How do we make decisions? Especially about really important things, like our health? What do we consider, take account of, or gamble on? Or do we not make them at all, but have our decisions made for us? Let’s get together to consider, slowly, the impact of fast thinking on all of our lives.

Dr Gary Barker of the Intsitute of Food Reasearch will be presenting. He will be joined by Dr Michael Grey, a motor neuro science phsyiologist and Dr Grey's research student, Miss Alison Welsh.

Want to see what Science Café is all about? See below some photos of our last lession, "Sex, Art and Genes"

DR SCHWAMP, SAT 4TH FEB REVIEW

Posted: Tuesday 21st February 2017

DR SCHWAMP, SAT 4TH FEB REVIEW

And It arrived, a long, sleek Shwampmobile which parked (sort of discreetly) in the quiet lanes on Halesworth and the doors of The Cut opened to welcome Dr Schwamp and their travelling fans.
A buzz could already be felt, Aafke and Imogen had seamlessly arranged the night, the café staying open especially late to feed the hungry traveller, the bar was in full swing as guests lined up with eager anticipation.

Dr Schwamp played marvellously, never faltering throughout their nearly two hour set! Beginning with poetic musings over their time in the Yukon inflected with the occasional instrument before bursting into songs from the new Gold Rush themed album.
They look as good as they sound with a carefully considered character curated for each member doing everything to create an experience as much as a gig. Playing to an arrangement unusual for them- a seated crowd- they conquered the room quickly, with everyone soon up and dancing.

Lead singer Sean MacGloin occasionally pulls out the bagpipes, violin and harmonica (not all at once but we are sure he could) enhancing their musical arrangement, giving it much variation and gusto. Their new album was played in full with their old favourites thrown on the end for good measure. Fantastic bass lines, riffs, horns and drumming coming at the audience from all angles with unrelenting energy. Trevor, sound engineer at The Cut, masterfully pulled out all the elements.
Each song was as driving and danceable as the next, there is definitely something for everyone in this band. They will make an unmissable festival set, dragging all proximal ears into their tent!

EXHIBITION: GEORGE FARROW-HAWKINS

Posted: Friday 17th February 2017

EXHIBITION: GEORGE FARROW-HAWKINS

Our new exhibition, on show until Saturday 18th March.

George Farrow-Hawkins sees art as a means of being in the world. As a tool of self-knowledge and apprehending ones own subjective notion of existence. Authenticity to ones own experience is sought through investigating the idea of memory of touch. George's artwork, which takes the form of raw materials such as graphite and carbon applied to surfaces such as bedsheets, paper and hair exist as the residue of a lived moment and the visceral embodiment of the people and environments around him.

DARK ENERGY & DARK MATTER

Posted: Tuesday 17th January 2017

DARK ENERGY & DARK MATTER

Our ideas about the Cosmos have changed radically over time. Indeed our idea of time itself has been altered. What does that mean for planet Earth? Join us for an exciting journey where we shall go boldly, [as we know our grammar], into the final frontier… The Universe.

For the first of the 2017 Science Cafe season, the well known Astrophysicist  and Astronomer Professor Michael Rowan-Robinson of Imperial college London, will discuss Dark Energy and Dark Matter.

Professor Rowan-Robinson is a local man, living in Southwold, and writes a monthly column in the Southwold Organ about astronomy, tides, coastal erosion and climate change called Stars'n Tides.  In addition he is Honorary President of the Darsham And Surrounding Hamlets (DASH) astronomical society. He is strongly involved in astronomy outreach activities, frequently giving talks about astronomy and space to primary schools, festivals, and meetings such as this one.

Professor Rowan-Robinson is also, and increasingly interested in the history and philosophy of science.

Mr Richard Symes will be chair person for the evening.

Food  served from 6.30
The talk will begin at 7.30 and end at 9pm
