A Quiet Place: Day One (15)

A Quiet Place: Day One shows us the moment when the Earth fell silent in this spin-off prequel to the postapocalyptic story.

It begins on an otherwise ordinary day in New York that is suddenly ripped apart by the arrival of extraterrestrial creatures that hunt humans by sound. A small group of survivors must band together in absolute silence if they want to see a brand new dawn.

BOOK FESTIVAL

SAVE THE DATE!


The Flavel is embarking on a brand-new venture: a Book Festival on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 September 2024, in partnership with Browser Books, The Community Bookshop and Dartmouth Library.


Dartmouth has become known, not only as a sailing and tourist destination, but also as a town that holds very successful and enjoyable festivals: the Music Festival, the Food Festival and Dartmouth Royal Regatta.So, we thought a Book Festival would to be a wonderful addition to the busy calendar of events in the town. We have a large number of authors living in the area, and this will be a superb way to showcase their work, and of course, to welcome authors from further afield.


This is an exciting new venture for The Flavel Centre, in partnership with Browser Books, Dartmouth Community Bookshop and Dartmouth Library, and one which we hope will evolve into an annual event.


For the Book Festival, we are planning a range of events, such as speaker sessions, panel discussions, workshops, film, and children’s events. These events will take place in different areas of The Flavel Centre, Dartmouth Library, Browser Books and Dartmouth Community Bookshop, which are all within a concentrated area.


The Flavel Centre’s new patron is John Suchet, the renowned broadcaster, journalist and author, and we are delighted that he is supporting the Book Festival, and will be participating in the event.

We are also delighted that Jo Loosemore, a prolific BBC producer and presenter, will be participating.


We are currently working on the programme, and several authors have expressed an interest across a variety of genres. We will be sending out more detailed information as soon as we are able and look forward to seeing you there.

Christian Garrick & the


Budapest Café Orchestra


are:


CHRISTIAN GARRICK – violin, darbuka


EDDIE HESSION – accordion


KELLY CANTLON – double bass


ADRIAN ZOLOTUHIN – guitar, saz, balalaika, domra


The refreshingly unconventional and snappily attired boutique orchestra are BACK!! If

you missed them last year, here’s your chance to catch them!

Budapest Café Orchestra bring you gypsy and folk-flavoured music in their own fresh

and surprising way. From Balkan and Russian traditional pieces to artful distillations of

the masterpieces by the great Romantic composers to Gaelic folk anthems their

infectious music will get into your veins and stay there forever.

With 13 albums to their name the Budapest Café Orchestra was established in 2009 by

British composer and violinist, Christian Garrick, and led by him have won legions of

fans with their magical and infectious performances. A small but impeccably formed

ensemble of just four players, the BCO combines violin, guitar, accordion, double bass,

saz & balalaika to dazzling effect, creating an awesome aural alchemy normally only

characteristic of far larger ensembles.


Two of the country’s celebrated international soloists revel at the heart of proceedings.

Accordionist exemplar Eddie Hession is a supreme accordion champion of Great

Britain. In his illustrious career he has accompanied Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo,

Jose Carreras and Chris Rea. Christian Garrick is one of the world’s most celebrated

jazz violinists. He has played music with Dame Cleo Laine & Sir John Dankworth,

Wynton Marsalis, Nigel Kennedy, Bireli Lagrene, Tim Minchin, Caro Emerald and John

Etheridge. One of Russia's most enigmatic musical exports, The Sultan (sic Adrian

Zolotuhin) is a master of the strummed strings of domra, balalaika, guitar and saz.


Veteran bass-man Kelly Cantlon has been in the business of laying down the low notes

for many-a-moon. Kelly first found fame in the as a Vagabond with Northern Soul

sensations Jimmy James and the Vagabonds.

Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy

campfires - plus a few surprises along the way - hugely entertaining, immense skill and

profound musicianship, a show by the BCO is enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube! "Not so much a band name as a whole genre of its own, Budapest Café Orchestra embraces an encyclopaedia of music and mischief." SCOTSMAN ONLINE:

Exhibition On Screen

Van Gogh: Poets & Lovers


Directed by David Bickerstaff – Produced by Phil Grabsky


200 years after its opening and a century after acquiring its first Van Gogh works, the National Gallery, London is hosting the UK’s biggest ever Van Gogh exhibition. Van Gogh is not only one of the most beloved artists of all time, but perhaps the most misunderstood.

This film is a chance to reexamine and better understand this iconic artist. Focusing on his unique creative process, Van Gogh: Poets & Lovers explores the artist’s years in the south of France, where he revolutionised his style. Van Gogh became consumed with a passion for storytelling in his art, turning the world around him into vibrant, idealised spaces and symbolic characters.


Poets and lovers filled his imagination; everything he did in the south of France served this new obsession. In part, this is what caused his notorious breakdown, but it didn’t hold back his creativity as he created masterpiece after masterpiece. Explore one of art history’s most pivotal periods in this once-in-a-century show.


Made in close collaboration with the National Gallery.

MATTHEW BOURNE’S : EDWARD SCISSORHANDS (12A)



EDWARD SCISSORHANDS: MATTHEW BOURNE’S DANCE VERSION OF TIM BURTON’S CLASSIC FILM



Edward Scissorhands: Matthew Bourne’s dance version of Tim Burton’s classic film of 1990.


In a castle high on a hill lives Edward; a boy created by an eccentric inventor. When his creator dies he is left alone and unfinished with only scissors for hands until a kindly townswoman invites him to live with her suburban family. Can Edward find his place in the well-meaning community which struggles to see past his curious appearance to the innocence and gentleness within?


Matthew Bourne’s magical dance production of Edward Scissorhands has carved a place in the hearts of audiences worldwide since its premiere in 2005.


Based on the classic Tim Burton movie and featuring the hauntingly beautiful music of Danny Elfman and Terry Davies, Bourne and his New Adventures Company return to this witty, bittersweet story of an incomplete boy left alone in a strange new world.


Filmed live in March 2024 at the Wales Millenium Centre, Cardiff, this ’visually arresting and ceaselessly inventive’ (★★★★★ Metro) production is ‘the perfect treat for all the family’ (★★★★★ The Times).

Luminescent and shimmering, Fool’s Paradise marked the first of Wheeldon’s many collaborations with composer Joby Talbot. It was created in 2007 for Wheeldon’s own company, Morphoses, and first performed in 2012 by The Royal Ballet.


THE TWO OF US

The wistful songs of Joni Mitchell set the scene for the UK premiere of The Two of Us, a duet of deep intimacy and yearning. It was created in 2020 for the Fall for Dance Festival in New York, and had American ballet dancers Sarah Mearns and David Hallberg in its original cast.


US (DUET)

Us is a tender duet danced by two men. It was created in 2017 for BalletBoyz and is set to Keaten Henson’s music.


AN AMERICAN IN PARIS (BALLET)  

The Royal Ballet celebrates Wheeldon’s extraordinary success in musical theatre by performing the ballet scene from his Tony Award-winning musical An American in Paris. Set to Gershwin’s jazzy melodies, the musical is inspired by the 1951 film of the same name starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron. The musical went on to win four Tony awards.  The full musical depicts a blossoming romance between the American G.I. Jerry Mulligan and a French ballerina, Lise Dassin. The ballet excerpt was Wheeldon’s take on one of the most memorable scenes from the film – an extended sequence in which the two central characters dance through Paris.
