Gothique Film Society

17 October 2014 - 20 March 2015

The Gothique Film Society presents

A Tribute to Edgar Wallace

The Gothique Film Society is fast approaching its 50th season.  Hard to imagine that any member could survive this long!  Hopefully we will get there; just watch this space!

Newcomers to the Gothique are always welcome.  Note that for each programme the screening order will not necessarily be as shown here.  Also, the society is really for people interested in the films being shown rather than those who enjoy a perfect cinema experience.

6:45pm start

For members unable to attend screenings, copies of Dave Simpson’s programme notes (for the current season) are available from Simon Davies:

Spiritualists

Sun 19 April 2015, 16:00

The Conway Collective presents:

Spiritualists, a rehearsed reading of a new play loosely based on the Rochester Rappers

written by Anne-Sophie Marie

In the years preceding the American Civil War, a young spiritualist medium struggles with her profession, her beliefs and her powers.

Margaret and her two sisters earn a living through séances, passing for the real thing by using various tricks to fool their audience.

When Margaret meets Elisha, an explorer who remains a sceptic, something triggers the kind of experience she usually only pretends to have. As other events unfold, Margaret no longer knows her own mind nor the kind of life she must lead to survive while keeping her integrity.  

Tickets: £5

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

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

No Frills

Wed 8 July 2015, 19:45

The Conway Collective presents:

Dotdotdot Dance Company in No Frills
 
Three dancers, one voice, one guitar and one percussion box.

No Frills is flamenco stripped down to its bare essence.

Through an exploration of a number of its traditional styles in their most evocative form, this show is a celebration of the raw and nuanced energy that flamenco awakens, not only in the dancer but in the spectator too.

Dancers Noemi Luz, Magdalena Mannion and Yinka Esi Graves, seamlessly interweave their individual styles creating a shared flamenco language which is accompanied by Ana Colom's evocative singing. 

No Frills asks the spectator to put aside pre-conceptions of what flamenco is, instead giving a unique insight into its rhythms, melodies, energy and power.

Tickets £10, £8

The Conway Collective presents:

Golem

Writer and performer Richard Waring  teams up with director Luke Dixon in the creation of a new solo show. 

Times are dangerous for the Jews. Their windows are being smashed, their graveyards overturned, and some are being murdered.
They are even being accused of using the blood of Christian babies in their Passover bread.
The threat of violence is ever present.
One dark night a Rabbi creates a creature from the mud of the river bank.
It is a being of enormous strength, with power to defend the Jews from those who would destroy them.
But can the old rabbi control his own creation? 

An old tale retold.
Never has the story been more pertinent. 

Only London performance prior to New York. 

Tickets: £10, £5

The Conway Collective presents:

The UK premiere of a new work from Natasha Levchenko (Ru) and Caroline Waters (UK).

First meeting in Moldavia in 2003, Natasha and Caroline's passion for improvisation in performance has led them to collaborate on many projects over the years. In January 2015 the two gave a first showing of a new work in progress. Tonight after further work in Russia and the UK, they give the premiere of their new show.
Natasha Levchenko started her dance career at the end of the 80’s in a dance team ‘Slang’ in Ekaterinburg dancing styles of break, funk hip hop. When more information came to Russia after Perestroika her interested started to shift to Dance Theatre, Contemporary, CI, Improvisation/Performance. She can now add Somatic Disciplines to that list. She has been the director of her own dance company Kipling Dance for 15 years based in Ekaterinburg.

Caroline Waters started off studying Mime and Physical Theatre in the early 80’s, which led to a Degree in Theatre at Dartington College of Arts in the UK. Here she got to study across genres all kinds of improvisation in performance. This set her up for a lifetimes work internationally creating work on the road as well as organising many Contact Improvisation and Improvisation in Performance Festivals in Europe, Russia and The USA. After teaching for 15 years at Dartington, before it closed she now teaches at Chichester University and continues to develop her freelance performance work and Festival organising.
