It’s finally Friday! There is so much on this weekend that we struggled to pick our favourites but we have and are they absolute corkers. From extended International Women’s Day celebrations to two art exhibitions (two!) here are some of our top picks for this weekend.
Mort: One year after his passing, this Performed Reading is a celebration of Terry Pratchett’s life and work featring one of his most popular characters; Death. ‘Mortimer needs a job. Perhaps something in farming? There’s a reaper hiring but he seems a bit…Grim. Soon, responsibility for a whole world of princesses, priests, wizards, witches and fast food vendors could rest on young Mort’s shoulders.’ The performance is running for Friday and Saturday this weekend at the New Venue Theatre.
Dick Tracy: The comic book detective is coming to The Old Market! After wowing audiences acrosst the globe, Le Navet Bete’s Dick Tracy ‘is a slapstick comedy influenced by the world-famous detective, incorporating live music, audience interaction, lightning-quick character changes, and plenty of over-the-top silliness’.
Character Heads – Johannes Kerkhoven: New to The Naked Eye Gallery, poet and artist Johannes Kerkhoven ‘portrays life’s emotions and gives us an insight into how a subtle change of a brush stroke can change the face of his subject, just as the most subtle change of the movement of muscles in the face can change the entire expression of an individual’. The exhibition is only running until the 15th.
Al Fresco Queer Disco: Traumfrau and Pink Fringe have teamed up to create a night long queer festival in line with International Women’s Day this week. With everything from dancing, shows, live art and a garden party, this is definitely one night you won’t forget!
Heike Roesel Exhibition: Residing at The Round Georges, this exhibition by Brighton University graduate Heike Roesel this exhibition is not one to be missed. Described in her own words, Roesel’s artwork could be described as ‘semi-abstract imaginative ‘worlds’…living in Brighton and the landscape surrounding the city are a constant source of ideas’.
Have a good weekend!
