This acclaimed show tells the true story of Cafe Society – the first racially integrated jazz club in New York.

Full of swinging jazz, blues, gospel and bebop, Cafe Society Swing follows the venue’s struggles and triumphs to its eventual demise in America’s ‘Red Scare’ of the late 1940s.

Sancho: An Act of Remembrance
4th – 16th June Tickets

about


“Thrilling one man show”
The New Yorker

In this revealing and funny show, Paterson Joseph inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Charles ‘Sancho’ Ignatius, casting new light on the often misunderstood narratives of the African-British experience.

After an international tour, Paterson Joseph’s new play receives its London premiere at Wilton’s Music Hall. Co-directed by Simon Godwin, this is the little known story of a man who lived a remarkable life.

Born on a slave ship, educated in secret, he became a composer, actor, anti-slavery campaigner, and the first Afro-Briton to vote in a British general election. Sancho’s story casts new light on the often misunderstood narratives of the African-British experience.

He was born on a slave ship but never a slave, was immortalised by the great English painter Thomas Gainsborough, and in 1774 became the first Afro-Briton to cast a vote.

In this endlessly revealing, often funny one-man show, celebrated actor Paterson Joseph (ITV’s Safehouse, Channel 4’s Peep Show and HBO’s The Leftovers) inhabits the curious, daringly determined life of Ignatius Sancho – composer, social satirist, general man of refinement – while casting new light on the often misunderstood narratives of African-British experiences.

Lamb @ Rich Mix
5 June Tickets

about


first Ethiopian film ever invited to the Cannes’ prestigious festival.

The young Ephraim is left to his own devices, even though he is still almost a child. His father left him behind with relatives to go and seek his fortune elsewhere.

Ephaim’s biggest friend is his sheep: he is inseparable from the animal. One day his uncle tells him that the sheep has to be slaughtered for a religious sacrifice. But Ephraïm is ready to do anything to save his only friend and return home.

Without being strictly autobiographical, Lamb draws its characters and mood on the director’s own childhood years – years of dictatorship and starvation, yet also youthful happiness.

Journey to a world where your partner can arrive in an Amazon package or your child can be chosen from the top shelf. It could be the answer to all our problems, but what might we lose along the way?

what's on killed negative | www.imjussayin.com

What’s On Recommends
Killed Negatives @ Whitechapel Gallery
Until  21 Aug Free

about


Thousands of negatives by American photographers were systematically destroyed in the 1930s; these irreparable images were known as ‘killed negatives’.

Roy E. Stryker, head of the Information Division of the Farm Security Administration (FSA), launched a historic photographic initiative between 1935 and 1944. In order to expose American rural poverty, the FSA commissioned photographers, including Walker Evans (1903–1975) and Dorothea Lange (1895–1965), to record the struggles of rural life following the Great Depression. Omitted from the story of this landmark documentary project is the ruthless method of editing Stryker deployed for the final selection. The negative of each rejected image was punctured with a hole puncher; if a print was made the image would feature a black disc, floating surreally over faces and landscapes.

This display presents prints made from some of the rejected negatives as well as photographers’ personal and administrative records. Also included are contemporary artists’ responses to these haunting images. The photographs transform an act of censorship into abstract, conceptual and strangely beautiful pictures.

detail


FSA photographers include Paul Carter, Jack Delano, Walker Evans, Theodor Jung, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Edwin Locke, Carl Mydans, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn, John Vachon, Marion Post Wolcott, alongside contemporary works by Etienne Chambaud, Bill McDowell and Lisa Oppenheim.
