What: YGRG154: Body Heat: Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė

Where: Amanda Wilkinson Gallery 

When: Tuesday 27th - 21st April 

The Young Girl Reading Group is a collective formed by Dorota Gawęda and Eglė Kulbokaitė to consider what constitutes a voice in today’s world of social media, celebrity culture and all-encompassing capital. Their latest work, Body Heat, explores quotations from Richard Sennett’s Flesh and Stone: The Body and the City in Western Civilization (1994) in which he considers the history of the city as told through people’s bodily experience, and suggests that this physical relationship to urban architecture is crucial to the history of gender politics. YGRG combine Sennett’s words with selections from other writers including their own writing and the performers lie on a carpet under a heat lamp inscribed with quotations from the text. They create a space to considering the relationship between the body of the performer, the text being read and the surrounding environment.

What: Rae Morris

Where: Heaven

When: Wednesday 28th 

In February, after the release of her latest record we wrote: “She’s ditched the drudgery of album one and, on Someone Out There, has shown she’s capable of a much more confident, cinematic sound.” It’s with that growth in mind that we can’t wait to be front and centre at Heaven to see her perform live. After this show she kicks off a UK festival tour so it’ll be the last chance for a while to see a more intimate kind of performance.

What: Ouroboros

Where: Rosemary Branch Theatre & Pub 

When: Friday 30th and Saturday 31st

Charlotte Fox's new playOuroboros’ (a symbol representing coming full circle), discusses our society’s obsession with ego, superficiality, narcissism and over-consumption. Where superfoods are devoured with religious devotion and our desperate need for the next quick fix rules. Fox portrays a conveyer belt of hyper-functional characters, combining music, physical theatre, mime, clown, dance & bouffon in a dynamic, confrontational piece that will lead you down a rabbit hole of delicious chaos.

What: Guy Gerber (All Night Long)

Where: KOKO

When: Sunday 1st 

Guy Gerber is a boundary pusher and DJ force to be reckoned with. He's highly rated as one of the best touring acts with his long, deeply dug sets made legendary by a 12-hour performance at Burning Man back in 2014. This weekend he returns to KOKO for an all-night session from 10pm to 5am. What better way than that to head into the bank holiday Monday?
