Culture Calendar w/c 12th Feb
Wanna know what's on in London this week? Look no further.
Where: Southwark Playhouse
When: Weds 14th Feb - 10th March
A spaceship hurtles towards a black hole. A book-loving couple ﬂee a burning city. A bloodshot eye conjures up kisses and wild animals. The world premiere of Philip Ridley’s Angry is a menacing, magical, and darkly comedic collection of stories that vibrate with the lingering unease of our times.Georgie Henley (The Chronicles of Narnia) will be joined by Olivier Award nominee Tyrone Huntley (Jesus Christ Superstar, Dreamgirls, Book of Mormon), to perform the series of six gender-neutral monologues on subjects as diverse as refugees, millennial anger, and interstellar travel. Both actors will learn all six monologues and both will perform every night, but who performs each monologue will alternate from night to night.
What: Jorja Smith
Where: Shepherd’s Bush Empire
When: Weds 14th
Get down to Shepherd’s Bush Empire to see the winner of the Brits 2018 Critics’ Choice Award slay the stage. Hot off the back of a huge 2017 (we’re talking an appearance of Drake’s More Life and a North American tour with Bruno Mars), she’s ready to take on a new year, and has already had major success with ‘Let Me Down’ and a feature on the Black Panther soundtrack. The fact that she’s done all of this without a record label is a testament to Jorja’s flawless voice, and an unflappable determination to succeed. This’ll be a special one.
Where: Jazz Cafe
When: Thurs 15th
We got to know Superorganism last year with the release of their 10/10 debut single ‘Something For Your M.I.N.D’, and from that moment on we were hooked. Superorganism is an eight-person pop band, dealing in bright, fun tunes that sound like updated versions of something you might find on the Juno soundtrack, half-nostalgic retro, half bang-up-to-date electro-pop. Whatever it is, head over to the Jazz Cafe on Thursday and find out for yourself just how good this band is.
What: Women Look At Women
Where: Richard Saltoun
When: Thurs 15th - 31st March
Women Look At Women explores feminine identity through the work of thirteen internationally renowned women artists. In this inaugural exhibition at Richard Saltoun’s new gallery in Dover Street, each of the works on show reflects a different aspect of the relationship women have with their own bodies and how they judge and respond to the physicality of other women.
What: Nature Morte Late
Where: Guildhall Art Gallery
When: Friday 16th
Reject valentines and celebrate something we all have in common: life and death. Join Guildhall Art Gallery for a night of music, art, taxidermy, drawing, and cocktails and explore the themes of still life, inspired by exhibition Nature Morte. Tours will also take place giving you a chance to hear from the artists and curators themselves, whilst DJ Museum of Vinyl will provide the soundtrack to the night, with a playlist inspired by life and death.
