Sat 7 Mar 2015, 19:00

Finest Workers UK presents

Two Worlds in Harmony

A night of songs from your favorite musicals.

A vocal trio based in Essex called West End Mamas composed of three Filipinas who have played significant roles in various musical shows in the London Westend. Gia Macuja Atchison (Miss Saigon, Lion King and very recently Here Lies Love); Cez Campos Bonner (Kim in Miss Saigon, The King and I); Maya Barredo Duffy (Kim in Miss Saigon, Lion King). In 2013, they were awarded Best New Artist Group category in the Philippines’ ALIW Awards. They will be joined in the show by their better halves, the West End Papas who themselves have been performers in different musicals in the Westend. One of them is Robert Atchison who is an international concert violinist and conductor.

Nick Bonner and Gerrard Duffy have been in Miss Saigon, Jesus Christ Superstar and Starlight Express.
Two Worlds in Harmony is also a celebration of Filipinos’ success in the London West end, in the world of musicals even years after they have left theatre performing as they continue their musical journey with their husbands performing in different venues in UK and the Far East. From home to stage, life indeed is a performance for these vocal groups where harmony in both family life and music performance is embedded.

A night of songs from your favourite musicals will also feature guests singers: Grace dela Cuesta and singing competition winners Neneth Ortega Lyons and Joel Miranda. Hosted by Maribeth Gasper.

Tickets: £15 (£20 door) can be purchased online

Nous Quartet

Noûs (nùs) is an ancient greek word whose meaning is mind and therefore rationality, but also inspiration and creativity.

Quartetto Noûs, formed by four young Italian musicians, was founded in 2011 in "Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana" in Lugano, Switzerland, where they had the chance to meet internationally renowned teachers as Aldo Campagnari ("Quartetto Prometeo"), Bruno Giuranna, Carlo Chiarappa (“Nuovo Quartetto”), Massimo Quarta, Robert Cohen ("Fine Arts Quartet"). 

The Quartet is attending the prestigious "Walter Stauffer Academy" in Cremona studying with "Quartetto di Cremona" and with Professor Reiner Schmidt ("Hagen Quartett") in the "Musik Akademie Basel". 

The Quartet won the first prize in the International Competition "Luigi Nono" of Venaria Reale in Turin and was invited to play for the season "I Concerti del Quirinale" in Rome live broadcasted on Radio3.

It won the first prize in the "International Music Competition Anemos" in Rome and, in 2014, it was awarded a special mention in the context of the "Sony Classical Talent Scout Competition" in Madesimo, Italy.

Behind the Headlines: What's all the fuss about feminism?

Wed 18 March 2015, 19:00

Guardian Live presents

Behind the Headlines: What's all the fuss about feminism?

Why do some women hate feminism? What is the 'fourth wave' of feminism? Who decides what it means to be a feminist? Can men be feminists? And, with the pay gap still widening and sexism prominent across campus and offices, where has it really got anyone?

With gender equality firmly on the news agenda, and comment and criticism from all sides, Guardian Live presents a range of voices from different generations and perspectives. 

Chaired by founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, Laura Bates, join us to discuss the why, the what and the where now for feminism. 

Behind the Headlines is a live series that dissects and debates some of the most prominent news stories of the time, hearing from the people making and shaping the news itself.

Tickets £15/£12

Start and Ends: 19:00-20:45

Thu 7 May 2015, 19:45

The Conway Collective presents:

CounterPointe Shorts: new work by women for pointe

CounterPointe is a performance series dedicated to presenting the latest experimental, innovative, risk-taking choreography that shows a depth of investment in ballet by women dance makers working with the pointe shoe. Investigating new and old territory the series highlights new work, opening up discussion, and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take risks. 

Presented by Norte Maar’s Julia Gleich with Briar Adams and in collaboration with Conway Collective. 

This instalment of CounterPointe Shorts will feature informal showings of new works and post-performance discussion. Past post-performance talks have been led by: Claudia Jeschke, Karole Armitage, and Susie Crow. 

I remember one of my first ideas in these early punk pointe pieces was to think of pointe shoes as weapons. – Karole Armitage, 2013 CounterPointe

Tickets £10, £8

Parade

Mon 11 May 2015, 19:45

The Conway Collective presents:

Parade - a carnival of exhibitionists and seekers, peddlers of tales and talents, a cornucopia of performance delights! 
 
After the great success of last year's Parade, the elegant main space at Conway Hall echoes once again with memories of the original Ballet Russes, the lost romance of Alain Fournier's Le Grand Meaulnes and the melancholic circus of Federico Fellini.

Curated by Luke Dixon and Jane Turner this Parade will be another glorious unfolding display by experienced individualistic artists of their essential best.

A multiplicity of theatrical forms intertwine as fireworks of ingenuity in Conway's atmospheric theatre emblazoned with the banner:

'to thine own self be true....'

Turner & Dixon bring together 25 years of artistic collaborations in a new mix of both experienced and fresh young talent.

Tickets £10, £5
