Brighton’s Theatre Royal will host a unique play called ‘The Complete Deaths’ together with the Brighton Festival: Spymonkey, one UK’s leading comedy companies, will perform all the 74 deaths that appear in the works of William Shakespeare in a unique and funny tribute for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. The show will be on schedule on Friday and Saturday at 19.30pm, Saturday and Sunday at 14.30pm. For tickets and information click here.
Comedy lovers will be pleased with these two shows selected from the Komedia and Brighton Fringe programme: ‘The Girl who fell in love with the moon’, by ‘The Human Zoo Company’, and Louise Reay ‘Que Sera, 些拉 ’. The first one, on Friday and Saturday at 6.45 pm, is the tragic tale of Luna, and it explores the fascinating relation between mankind and its attraction to the skies; the show will feature a mixture of puppetry, poetry, movement and live music, for an absorbing visual journey that will surely catch the audience’s attention.

In the second show, Louise Reay will provide spectators with ‘Comedy in Chinese for people who don’t speak any Chinese at all!’. You will be surprised to understand everything, apparently without a reason! On Saturday 14th this weekend, the show will be repeated next Sunday, always at 4pm. Tickets can be bought here.
If you look for new experiences rather than plays and comedies, Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre, located in Lansdowne Road, is hosting an interesting day retreat called ‘My dreams are my spiritual guide’. Kadaman Neil, senior teacher with international experiences and education in meditation and dreams, will guide meditations based on the experience of dreams, in order to learn how to gain and keep that deep and positive experience in our daily life. From 09.30 to 17.00, on Saturday 14th May, the daily course can be booked here.
And for something even more unique, go to Hove George Street on Saturday 14th May at 10am and 2pm, or on East Street on Sunday 15th May at the same times: you will have the possibility to see a nomadic street event co-commissioned by Brighton Festival called ‘Bed‘. This outdoor performace by members of Entelechy’s Elders Company, will feature memories of the past that come back to haunt an older woman between waking and sleep. This travelling installation aims to raise awareness upon social issues such as loneliness at older age that can be tackled contacting the Campaign to End Loneliness.
