about

H R Haitch is a musical comedy.

The Olympics are doomed, the East End is being gentrified for houses no-one can afford, Amy Winehouse has died, and Adele’s released her second album. It’s been a tough year.

But, in a world where Kim Kardashian can’t stay married for a whole TV series, love has blossomed between feisty East Ender Chelsea and dopey toff Bertie. He’s never going to win Mastermind, but he won Chelsea’s heart when he boned her trout at catering college.

Its 2012 and Chelsea’s future is bright. She has a new man and there’s a new progressive Prime Minister to light the days ahead (#blessed). The media can stick their obsession with the identity of Prince Albert, the secret royal who’s been in hiding for 20 years.

Bertie has something big to tell Chelsea. He’s down on one knee, but it’s not a ring he has in store… it’s a crown. And Chelsea will soon discover that travelling from Barking to Buckingham Palace takes more than a topped-up Oyster Card.

What’s On Recommends
Sex With Robots and Other Devices @ Kings Head
15 May – 02 June Tickets

about


“I turned it off. Shut it down. Re-booted it. It started asking questions and I didn’t want that, made me feel uncomfortable.”

Consider the future of sex. The terrifying, the inevitable, or perhaps the exciting answer to our problems. In a world where your partner can arrive in an Amazon package, or your child can be chosen off the shop shelf, how much will curiosity and ease play into people’s temptation.

detail

The piece has been inspired by a wealth of research including the work of Isaac Asimov, Abyss Creations and their development of ‘real dolls’, and the Science Museum’s robotics exhibition 2017. It takes a bold look at the development of robotics, and the ethics behind their use in day to day life.

Sex With Robots and Other Devices is presented in a co-production between King’s Head Theatre and Cloakroom Theatre. Cloakroom are an all-female collective, and are working with an all-female creative team to create the show. It is a direct response to the under-representation of female voices in theatre.



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

What’s On Recommends
Killed Negatives @ Whitechapel Gallery
16 May – 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.

Noir Sacre #2 @ Southbank
18 May Tickets

about

An explosive new work from the mother of contemporary African dance, Germaine Acogny.

Created specially for her by Ballet du Nord provocateur Olivier Dubois, this scenically minimalist, emotionally maximalist solo performance draws deep from Acogny’s prodigious well of experience.

As the performance opens to the strains of Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rite of Spring), a soft glow pulses and the smell of pipe tobacco wafts through the darkness.

Confined atop a brutally lit platform of black walls, Acogny confronts the audience with her furious presence, fearlessly carving out a space for her artistry in the deepest trenches of Western modernism.

Fresh from critically acclaimed sell-out runs at the 2018 Vault Festival – and shortlisted for an Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award at Edinburgh in 2015, Bismillah! is a hilarious, heart-breaking and compassionate contribution to the vital discussion around the experiences of disenfranchised young people in modern Britain.

Can you imagine being straight and going to a night called the ‘Cock and Hole’?

The women in black. The best tables are marked theirs by a crowd of empty prosecco bottles. They sit there in their uniformed black, a deep rich black only lots of money can buy… and they are looking at you.

They are not nice girls. But this is not a nice story.

Grotty is a dark, savage, and unflinching exploration of lesbian subculture in London.
