Before the termination of a flight

Poster for Before the termination of a flight.JPG

British artist David Bomberg was a soldier during the First World War. Deprived of access to his primary art-form, painting, he took to writing poetry about his experiences in the trenches. He still drew scenes from his life as a soldier, but these are distinctly different from his poetry and do not show the horrors of the war.

To mark the centennial of the end of the war, this performance explores three of Bomberg’s poems from the war and examines how different art-forms can express different emotions and experiences. The performance will consist of three sound pieces mixing electronic music and ambient soundscapes with Bomberg’s poetry and three correlating movement performances, all created by current LSBU students.

Space is limited please RSVP here

An Elephant Walk with Isobel Durrant

Once hailed as south London's answer to Bath, the Elephant and Castle's reputation has for many years been more ugly duckling than admired swan. Named after a pub, and famous for music halls, Europe's biggest cinema, and a gang that modelled itself on Chicago's violent criminals, it was less well-known for being home to an important group of artists that included Leon Kossoff and Frank Auerbach.  The Elephant reinvented itself more recently as a music and night club venue; hip in parts, but not where most people wanted to live; a grimy and gritty place, somewhere only its locals could love. Then  along came regeneration, and suddenly unfamiliar words like investment, opportunity, desirable started to be used about the neighbourhood.
