Aquarela takes audiences on a deeply cinematic journey through the transformative beauty and raw power of water. Captured at a rare 96 frames-per-second, the film is a visceral wake-up call that humans are no match for the sheer force and capricious will of Earth’s most precious element. From the precarious frozen waters of Russia’s Lake Baikal to Miami in the throes of Hurricane Irma to Venezuela’s mighty Angel Falls, water is Aquarela’s main character, with director Victor Kossakovsky capturing her many personalities in startling cinematic clarity.

The Bikes of Wrath (CTBA)

Dir. Cameron Ford, Charlie Turnbull 2019 | 101 mins | Australia

SHOWING TIMES:

  • Sat 18 Jan: 5.30pm 
  • Wed 22 Jan: 6pm

TICKET PRICES:

  • £8* – Standard
  • £5* – Student / Under 25
  • £21* – 3 film tickets for £21

The Bikes of Wrath tells the story of five Australian friends as they attempt to cycle 2600 kilometres from Sallisaw, Oklahoma, to Bakersfield, California in honour of the mighty westward migration undertaken by The Grapes of Wrath’s Joad family.  With an inordinate amount of self-belief, the cyclists set-off on their 30-day adventure with no training, no support vehicle, and as one member puts it best, ‘no real idea’. Burdened with trailers, musical instruments, and camera equipment, the group set themselves the additional challenge of surviving on $420 (the modern-day equivalent of the Joads’ $18 in the 1930s) and whatever their musical performances can yield.  Riding 90 kilometres a day, the journey along America’s iconic Route 66 takes them from the farmlands of Oklahoma to the blistering Mojave desert and countless places in-between; the diversity of landscapes only matched by the assortment of characters met along the way. It is through these chance encounters with everyday Americans that the cyclists expand on the novel’s central themes: migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity.  The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration, and the American Dream.  These vastly different small-town characters quickly become the central focus of the series, as well as integral to the groups’ success; letting the cyclists into their homes, lives, and demonstrating the startling parallels of The Grapes of Wrath seventy-eight years after its publication.  The Bikes of Wrath seven-part series uncovers a deep insight into the human spirit and shines a positive light on America at a time when the world needs it most; all rolled into a unique, funny and life-affirming observational documentary series filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkin’s Bait is a timely and funny, yet poignant new film that gets to the heart of a Cornish community facing up unwelcome change. Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Edward Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, Airbnb and stag parties to his harbour village. The idea of an idyllic Cornish village is a thing of the past and as the summer season heats up, simmering tensions between the locals and newcomers rise to boiling point. Hypnotic and nostalgic, BAIT’s distinctive visual style is not afraid to ask searching or neglected questions about modern Britain.

A SOUND NOT MEANT TO BE HEARD

A solo exhibition by Cardiff based artist Anthony Shapland that combines film, photography, audio, objects and printed text. Shapland has a fascination with the act of viewing and reviewing film, and how we can build fictions through the editing of documentary footage. Here, using sound, silence and speech, believable illusions and oblique narratives, he seeks out the gaps between what is seen and said, heard and understood.

The Teachers’ Protest

Presented by Amnesty International Exeter

The Teachers’ Protest

How Norwegian teachers defeated Nazi education

Dir. Jon Seal 78 mins | 2019 | UK Norwegian & English with Subtitles

SHOWING TIMES:

  • Sun 26 Jan: 1pm

1942. Occupied Norway. Teachers must join the Nazi Teachers’ League and teach Nazi ideas in their classrooms. 8,000 of them write protest letters. They are threatened with salary withdrawal and the sack. Still they refuse. In a desperate attempt to break them, the Nazi government arrests 1000 male teachers and sends them to prison camps, 300 miles above the Arctic Circle. The education system is in chaos and now the battle begins. 

Following successful launches in the UK and Norway, Jon Seal’s documentary weaves together archive footage, first-hand testimony and the skilful animation of Herlov Åmland’s poignant drawings to tell this gripping story to an international audience for the first time. The Teachers’ Protest is a sad, tender and uplifting documentary exploring a completely different kind of war story – an inspiring tale of passive resistance, where the heroes fight without weapons and still win.


There will be a Q&A session with the director after the film and a collection for Amnesty International.

Half Day Workshop


Session Times

  • Thu 30 Jan: 10am - 1pm

Creative Skills Multi-buy Offer: £30 per session £80 for 3x sessions £120 for 5x sessions £170 for all sessions
These workshops are aimed at Creative Businesses. Whether you are an artist, maker or musician these are practical, digital marketing workshops, to help you grow your business. A brand isn’t just a logo; it is your voice, your message – the ‘you’ that you will be projecting wherever you are. It is so important to get this right so your audience understands who you are and what your story is.  We will be exploring: Knowing what you know about your target customer, are you talking to them in a voice they will respond to? Looking at the products you make or service that you provide – is it obvious in your business name and logo or biography? What are you using as your tag line – can you summarise what you do in a short sentence? What is your USP – what stands you apart from everyone else? And how can we maximise that?  We will be looking at:
  • The Brand Promise
  • The Brand Expectations
  • The Brand Perceptions
  • The Brand Persona
  • The Brand Elements
To do this, we will delve into language, colour and voice to help you create an authentic, consistent and cohesive brand that you are proud of and can use throughout all of your marketing.  We will be hands on so please bring your chosen electronic device – whether you prefer to use a laptop or a tablet.  We will be keeping this workshop small so there will be plenty of opportunity for some one on one advice and support. There will also be plenty of opportunity to network with your fellow creative friends.

Health Inequalities in the time of Climate Change

Recently headlines across the world in declared that Climate Change is the “the biggest global health threat of the 21st century,'' based on the Lancet Countdown on health and climate change published in November 2019. Its co-author joins us from the University of Exeter to discuss her vital work.  

The impacts of climate change are unlikely to be felt equally. Those on low incomes – who are already more likely to have worse health – will suffer most from weather extremes, food shortages and flood damages, causing further health problems.

Health inequalities in the UK are already stark. If you are born in parts of Glasgow, your life expectancy is 26 years less than someone born in Kensington & Chelsea. Across Western Europe life expectancy can vary by up to 10 years. 

In this timely talk—followed by audience questions— Dr Karyn Morrissey discusses the current health inequalities crisis and how climate change will bring our health systems to the brink. Karyn’s research is informing city level responses to climate change.


BIOGRAPHY: Dr Karyn Morrissey

Senior Lecturer European Centre for Environment and Human Health University of Exeter

Karyn’s research focuses on understanding the impact of socio-economic and environmental inequalities on health outcomes, using data both big and small. An economist by background and having worked in a Department of Geography, her multi-disciplinary approach centres on the application of computational methodologies such as simulation models, econometric models and geo-computation models. Karyn is interested in the science-policy interface and has been a rapporteur for an OECD Workshop on the Future of Maritime Spatial Planning and Ocean Monitoring. She was an invited speaker at the Second Irish Maritime and Energy Resource Cluster Annual Conference in Cork in 2013, and an invited keynote speaker at the National Ocean Forum in Mauritius in 2012.

Jojo is one of the Nazi's newest, and most committed recruits. Encouraged by his imaginary best friend, Hitler (played outrageously by Waititi) Jojo is desperate to make an impression and help win the war, even if it means nearly blowing off his own head.  His world is turned upside down when he discovers his mother (Scarlett Johannsson) is hiding a young Jewish girl in their attic. Unsure of what to do Jojo must confront his blind nationalism and get on with the job. Packed with Waititi's signature style and sensitive to the horrors of WWII, Jojo Rabbit delivers a fresh retelling of a well known story.

BREAKFAST + FILM

Enjoy breakfast in our Café Bar before the screening on Tue 28 Jan. £10: Film + cup of tea + something from our breakfast menu.

Anthony Shapland

Anthony Shapland

A Sound Not Meant To Be Heard


A solo exhibition by Cardiff based artist Anthony Shapland that combines film, photography, audio, objects and printed text. Shapland has a fascination with the act of viewing and reviewing film, and how we can build fictions through the editing of documentary footage. Here, using sound, silence and speech, believable illusions and oblique narratives, he seeks out the gaps between what is seen and said, heard and understood. At the centre of the exhibition, playing out over several screens, is an expanded film installation and series of photographs that, by separating script, footage and soundtrack, reveals the central conceit of narrative filmmaking. The exhibition’s title can stand as a direct reference both to Foley sound effects (the fictional noises used in filmmaking without which footage can feel unnaturally quiet or uncomfortable) as well as to a sense of fitting in, of blending into the world so well that we pass unnoticed.

Autobiographical references are woven into Shapland's exhibition; filmed in the area where the artist grew up and drawing on relationships and family. They make reference to a world that was only just starting to shift its social, legal and moral attitudes toward gay men, which meant that life had to be lived in two parts, performed. Nothing was what it seemed on the surface, and the desire to ‘not stand out’, even after ‘coming out’, has had a lasting impact. His practice is filled with references to stage and backstage, to a performance of life, which adds to a sense that the world is constructed in the same way as a film set, constantly evolving and always temporary.

Sophia Wormald


traditionally the bowl represents woman or womb, water is also a feminine element. The bowls are not just finished items, they are a physical representation of the energy that has created them. their audible potential is an exa- mple of our isom- orphic relationship with vibration. the process of creating these bowls is an endurance based, monotonous, repeptative exercise, but forming these physical objects is a meditative activity promoting stilness and the recognition of unity. the bowls represent my own consciousness.

We all have a story and our own way of sharing it. Sometimes we stumble in that sharing. Sometimes there are too many blocks in the way, too many voices that hold us back. What happens when we let ourselves land on the other side of fear?   In this intimate spoken-word workshop led by Rebecca Tantony we are asked to open up and examine those places that we are sometimes scared to enter.  Rebecca Tantony is the author of three collections, has read her work in a variety of locations, from the Royal Albert Hall, to Wits University, Johannesburg. For the past two years Rebecca has taught Creative Writing to BA students at Bath Spa University. This 2 hour workshop is perfect for writers and poets of any ability.  ]]>

Sam Lee

Sam Lee plays a unique role in the British music scene. A highly inventive and original singer, folk song interpreter, a passionate conservationist, committed song collector and a successful creator of live events. Alongside his organisation The Nest Collective and fellow collaborators Sam has shaken up the live music scene breaking the boundaries between folk and contemporary music and the assumed place and way folksong is heard. He’s injected a renewed passion into this old material, helping to develop its ecosystem by not only inviting in a new listenership but also interrogating what the messages in these old songs hold for us today. With his forthcoming album, Old Wow, he’s summonsed up a truly compelling and emotional album that takes his work to yet another level. He may not intend to, but Sam Lee always surprises. When he released his first album ‘Ground Of Its Own’ in 2012, he dared to dramatically re-work old songs by matching his direct and rich singing style against an extraordinary backdrop of sound, making use of anything from Jews harps, trumpets, fiddles, banjo or the drone effects of an Indian Shruti box. This bravely original set made possible by a prestigious Arts Foundation award, set up to ‘support artists at a breakthrough moment in their careers’ made an immediate impact and the album was short- listed for a Mercury Music Prize. Three years later, Sam’s second album ‘The Fade In Time’ saw him break further new ground and receive accompanying accolades including a Songlines Award for artist of the year. But possibly the largest audience Sam found himself being heard by was when Guy Ritchie chose him to write the lead song for his epic Hollywood fantasy King Arthur: Legend of the Sword from which ‘The Devil and The Huntsman’ was born receiving tens of millions of plays internationally. And now comes ‘Old Wow’, yet another dramatic change of musical direction where, for the first time, Sam includes the instrument most notably absent from his recording career, the guitar and electric guitar at that, played by the album’s producer Bernard Butler (of Suede and McAlmont & Butler fame). Sam explains,
Yes, Sam plays a unique role in the British music scene. And now, with Old Wow he has re-worked traditional songs to create what he describes as “a timeless bridge, music that can be looking both backward and forwards, and a soulful accompaniment to an urgent need to fall back in love with nature if we are to know how to protect it”.

As Angus struggles between the weekend raves and weekday restlessness, we are swept along into a world where dogs run security businesses, flies talk, and nothing is quite what it seems. Salmon blends spoken word, music and surrealism to ask of its audience: why is it so hard to admit you're not okay?

Pattern Pusher Presents IV

Pattern Pusher + Foniee + Velvet Shakes + Shake The Geek


After a momentous 2019 Exeter indie trio Pattern Pusher return triumphantly to the Phoenix for their annual presents show.  The boys have used the event to demonstrate their ever growing immersive stage show and to also shine a light on new artists from the area.  For 2020 the gig will include; a new light installation which has been supported by the centre of Exeter's creative tech scene Kaleider; songs from their upcoming album and of course a pick of new bands and musicians from the South West.  Come and support the pioneers of the Exeter music scene and the "most energetic live band" according to GQ magazine.  Expect a night of live music until 11pm, followed by a DJ set in the auditorium until midnight. 

About Pattern Pusher

Pattern Pusher are a fun-loving three piece that will fill you with warm summer hooks. They are a quirky band. A keys player with soaring vocals, a bouncing bassist and a drummer full of disco beats. Their crusade of happiness has earned them a loyal fan base, accolades from BBC Radio 6, and a string of festival shows; now lining up on the same bills as their idols.  Pattern Pusher's highlight of 2019 has to be performing at Michael Eavis' 8000 cap Pilton Party before Supergrass and Wolf Alice after they won a multi heat contest judged by the man himself. 

Foniee

Winners of the University of Exeter Battle of the Bands 2019, Foniee are a high energy 5-piece funk-fusion band based in Exeter. With groovy guitar riffs, funky bassline grooves and powerful saxophone licks, they’ll keep you dancing all night!

Velvet Shakes

A four piece band formed in Manchester. Their sound is an amalgamation of Electronic Disco and Cosmic Pop. 

'A perfect blend of groove-soaked bass and subtle psychedelia sprinkled with a bit of summer lovin’. Velvet Shakes are whirred up to produce a sensational sub-genre dance floor mega merge that invites everyone to get down and boogie, regardless of their state of mind.' THE DOG'S FATHER


Shake The Geek

Braunton 4 piece rock band Shake The Geek are Pattern Pusher's new local talent pick. The female fronted group will remind you of No Doubt with high onstage energy and riffs to enjoy.

WALKWAY GALLERY

Marina Neil | Young SW Artists Showcase #1


Marina Neil’s practice is informed and inspired by social and political forms of expression through musical sub-genres such as punk, hip-hop and techno and how these can be used as a vehicle for expression and release. Her recent paintings touch on issues of bullying, mental health and gender dysphoria and aim to open conversations and reflect on experiences that may be shared by other young people. This is the first of two exhibitions that form an exchange between Exeter Phoenix, Bristol’s Creative Youth Network and a young emerging artist based in each city. This project pilots a new relationship between the two organisations, providing support, mentoring and opportunities for young, emerging artists to gain experience and access to the art-world. It aims to offer the artists a chance to access new audiences for their artwork and to overcome or meet any particular barriers they may face in developing their professional practice.

Federico Fellini’s exquisite tale of celebrity casts an adoring yet critical eye towards over Rome in the 1960s. Set over seven decadent days, the film follows Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist, pursuing a happiness that’s always just out of reach. Back in cinemas in a brand-new 4K restoration to celebrate both its 60th anniversary and Fellini’s centenary, La dolce vita is an enchanting fable of fame and folly.

Be Natural: The Untold Story Of Alice Guy-Blanché (PG)

Alice Guy-Blaché was a true pioneer who got into the movie business at the very beginning – in 1894, at the age of 21.  Two years later, she was made head of production at Gaumont and started directing films. She and her husband moved to the United States, and she founded her own company, Solax, in 1910. They started in Flushing and moved to a bigger facility in Fort Lee, New Jersey. But by 1919, Guy-Blaché’s career came to an abrupt end, and she and the 1000 films that bore her name were largely forgotten.  Pamela B. Green’s energetic film is both a tribute and a detective story, tracing the circumstances by which this extraordinary artist faded from memory and the path toward her reclamation.  Narration by Jodie Foster.

Jah Wobble's The Invaders of the Heart

+ support: TBC

Over the past four decades, Jah Wobble has ploughed his own furrow as a solo artist, as well as becoming a well-respected session musician, with a genuine passion for Eastern and Global music. He has worked with a diverse range of musicians, including Baaba Maal, Bjork, Primal Scream, Brian Eno, Sinead O’Connor, Julianne Regan, Dolores O’Riordan, Holgat Czukay, U2's The Edge, and Chaka Demus & Pliers. The man born John Wardle began his musical journey when he met John Lydon and Sid Vicious in 1973. It was Vicious who not only nicknamed John ‘Jah Wobble’ after a drunken binge but also loaned him his first bass guitar. Lydon asked JW to join Public Image Limited (aka PiL) in 1978. Wardle’s distinctive ‘low end’ bass became the backbone of PiL’s pioneering sound. After its follow-up, the exploratory yet sinister soundscapes of 'Metal Box', Wardle became disillusioned by politics within the band and their reluctance to play live. He eventually split from PiL in mid-1980 and embarked on a prolific solo career. Jah Wobble and the Invaders of the Heart released their debut album in 1990 and received a Mercury Music Prize nomination in 1991 for the 'Rising above bedlam' album. After the acclaimed 'Take me to God' album in 1994 the band split and Jah Wobble launched his own 30 Hertz record label which has subsequently released more than 30 albums.

Nick Maclean Quartet

Nick Maclean Quartet ft. Brownman Ali

This contemplative and often thrilling quartet's explorations of modern, original repertoire is led by the 26 year old star of Toronto's jazz piano community, Nick Maclean.  Formed in 2016, Maclean's foursome delivers jazz between the two poles of thoughtful introspection and powerhouse performance, taking influences from Herbie Hancock's primordial 1960's Blue Note era recordings, while paying tribute to some of the greatest improvisers in jazz history. Nick's style very clearly reflects Herbie Hancock's BlueNote sound, but his early influences were Fats Waller, Basie and Ellington. Definitely a gig for modernists happy to move towards the contemporary end of the spectrum. 

This will be an intriguing gig, modern jazz from Canada, featuring a truly provocative multi-award winning and 'Canada’s preeminent jazz trumpet player' (NYC Village Voice) Brownman Ali (Jay-Z, Beyonce, Paul Simon, Quincy Jones), whose  music ranges from Be-bop to Acid-jazz to Hip-hop to Brazilian Samba to Cuban Salsa as well as being featured on major motion picture soundtracks, music videos and live television broadcasts.  His sound has been called Freddie Hubbard meets Randy Brecker & Clifford Brown with hints of Woody Shaw and is quickly becoming familiar to jazz, latin & urban music fans. 

 The group is frequently lauded for the strength of their collective improvisatory vision and, as well as featuring Nick Maclean on keyboards and Brownman Ali on Trumpet, includes two of Toronto’s top-tier rhythm section 20-somethings: Jesse Dietschi on bass and Tyler Goertzen on drums. The synergy of the 4 is always palpable in concert. 

The quartet’s debut 11-track full-length album “Rites Of Ascension” features 6 Maclean-penned compositions, 1 Brownman original and 4 re-imagined Herbie Hancock classics, all recorded at the renowned Canterbury Studios in Toronto. Produced by Brownman Ali, this new disk was released on October 31st, 2017 and was nominated for CJSF’s ‘2018 Julian Award of Excellence’, it won a ‘Gold’ Global Music Award in the ‘jazz’, ‘band’, and ‘album’ categories, and was featured as one of the Global Music Awards’ ‘Top 5 Albums of Spring 2018’.

Trinidadian-born Brownman Ali stands at the forefront of innovation in the Canadian jazz community. He spent 4 years as the featured trumpet player with Guru’s Jazzmatazz, doing 4 world tours, catapulting him into the hip-hop history books. He has since worked with a wide assortment of artists, including Beyonce, Paul Simon and Quincy Jones. In 2009 he launched his own record label: Browntasauras Records. Now, using the label as a breeding ground for new and visionary talent in the modern jazz realm, Browntasauras and Brownman himself are widely regarded as vanguards for the evolution of Jazz in Canada. 

'...A well-deserved award winner in many jazz and music circles, Maclean leads his crew into the untamed wilds of really doing right rather than just showing up. A smoking set that sounds and feels like the real thing, this forward into the past set – where most of the songs are originals – is a first class doozy. Killer stuff throughout.' Chris Spector, The Midwest Record (Illinois, USA)

'Personal expression and fun are the hallmarks of Nick Maclean’s music and both are in abundance here...Trumpeter Brownman Ali, with his crystalline tone, controlled vibrato and precise facility tips his hat to Hubbard while accelerating ‘Driftin’ into double time... The highlight is the contribution from Ali ‘Madness of Nero’ which seems to encompass all the stylistic elements of the album into one piece including samples from philosopher Christopher Hitchens.'  Peter Wockner, Jazz and Beyond (Australia)


 Brownman Ali

‘Canada's preeminent jazz trumpeter’ Village Voice, New York City

‘ Energy is never in short supply in Brownman Ali's world. This Toronto/Trinidadian trumpeter loves skipping from style to style almost as much as he digs mixing it up with the jazz elite’ NOW magazine, Toronto

Chloe lives in a world with only one colour, a world that is completely grey. But at night, when she’s wrapped up tight, her dreams are colourful and bright.  Unable to contain her imaginative thoughts, Chloe tells of the vast blue seas, lush green jungly-trees and golden yellow sands she’s seen. But, hushed at once by her parents, Chloe is warned to keep such thoughts at bay – for the Grey Queen is out to wash all trace of colour away.  Join Chloe on her courageous journey to unleash all seven shades of the rainbow in this extraordinary and wholly original tale of bravery, self-expression and fighting for what your heart knows to be true.
★★★★★ ‘Entertaining and funny, but also full of significant meaning... can’t recommend enough’ BRISTOL POST ★★★★ ‘This show glitters even when its world is grey’ THE STAGE ‘As a parent it’s great to see a piece that is enjoyable and entertaining, but perhaps a little more challenging than standard children’s theatre’ WESTON SUPER MUM

Perfect for ages 4+ and their families | 50 mins running time

Venue: Exeter Phoenix, Auditorium

To Move In Time is a monologue written by Tim Etchells for performer and collaborator Tyrone Huggins, in which an unnamed protagonist speculates playfully about what he’d do if he were able to travel backwards and forwards in time.

From fantasies of changing the present, to obsessions with everyday events in the past, to dreaming up ways to get rich from knowledge of the future, the text is an unfolding compulsive thought process.

In the end though, far from the science fiction of time travel it is ostensibly working with, To Move In Time concerns itself with questions of value and priority – what matters, what needs to be cared for and what can be changed.

An obsessive stream of consciousness tangled and contradictory, the work combines Etchells’ text with Huggins’ powerful performance to walk a line between comic absurdity and melancholia.


★★★★ - ‘Tim Etchells is surely a master of the late-night pub conversation. Give him a thought experiment and watch him go’ THE GUARDIAN ★★★★ - ‘An insightful script and detailed performance in this thoughtful new piece of work’ THE LIST ★★★★ - ‘To Move In Time is a collision of the human and superhuman. A piece of wondrous phrase-making that revels in the fragility of the unknown’ A YOUNGER THEATRE
A Tim Etchells and Forced Entertainment Production, in collaboration with Tyrone Huggins. Co-commissioned by The Yard Theatre and supported by Lincoln Performing Arts Centre

Fun and energetic, Armando Iannucci’s (The Death of Stalin) fresh retelling of a Charles Dickens classic is bold and inspired.   Shipped from home to home David (Dev Patel) is faced with every form of fortune; the good, the bad and the tragic. Taking each situation in his stride he ceases the opportunity to put his experiences down on paper and word-by-word his autobiography is born. With an all star supporting cast, including Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie and Ben Whishaw and playful, evolutionary visuals The Personal History Of David Copperfield will appeal to all.

BREAKFAST + FILM

Oscar nominated British actor Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Jodie Turner-Smith (The Neon Demon) star as a couple on their first date who become fugitives after an altercation with the police.  As the film unfolds, the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for African Americans across the country. Within a narrative that’s clearly reminiscent of Bonnie and Clyde, Matsoukas tackles the pain of systemic racism and continued police brutality towards African Americans in the States, whilst also telling a beautiful, powerful and thoroughly modern black love story. Directed by two-time Grammy winner Melina Matsoukas, director of HBO’s Insecure, Netflix series Master of None and Beyoncé’s ‘Formation’ video Queen & Slim is her hotly anticipated feature film directorial debut.

Dubioza Kolektiv

Once upon a time (2003) in a faraway land called Bosnia and Herzegovina, a group of friends decided to form a band. Along with local Balkan flavours, their musical influences come from all over the world: ska, punk, reggae, electronic, hip-hop. Yet, there was no music industry, few concerts, no space for cultural or political expression among the new crop of plugged in youth. In fact, the entire region was reeling from deep moral and economic stagnation. It was from this environment that Dubioza Kolektiv was born, and not quietly, but kicking and screaming, presenting no-go topics front and centre, and demanding to be heard-and in doing so, they created a phenomenon. Fast forward to 2020 the band continues stronger than ever and are now established as among the best and most popular live outfits in Eastern Europe. After blowing away audiences around the UK last year one reviewer said 'when they grace our shores again, make sure you catch this life-affirming band and their explosive live show'. They’re back in 2020 - with a UK tour and a new album #fakenews coming soon!

Rhys James

Snitch

Mock The Week regular and star of his own BBC Radio 4 series, Rhys James heads out on his first national tour.  In early 2019, Rhys was asked to go back to his school and inspire the Year 11s. Given that teenagers are a nightmare and there was no fee, he ghosted the teacher who had emailed. Bit of a shame really, given that he's figured out the true circle of life, has solved parenting despite having zero children, and even thinks he can predict the curriculum of schools in 50 years. Maybe he'll inspire some Year 11s in 2069. As also seen on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, and heard on Radio 4’s The News Quiz.

‘Charismatic, clever and self-aware... destined for great things’ GUARDIAN ★★★★ - ‘Sickeningly talented… never more than a few seconds away from another punchline’  TIME OUT ★★★★  - ‘A clever wordsmith with great timing...

Likewise, there is just one population of Narrow-headed Ants left in the UK. Ella and Ben will be run these workshops along with Ant and Bat specialists to consider the roles art and poetry can play in our greater understanding of these wonderful species. Come to one or the other or both - all welcome. No writing/art experience necessary. Both workshops are free. Booking recommended.

Tangle Presents

Ben Jonson's Volpone


THE CLASSIC SAITRE OF CUNNNING AND GREED FROM AFRICAN CARIBBEAN THEATRE COMPANY, TANGLE


'Honour? There’s no such thing' Volpone is rich – filthy rich. For him the glory of accumulating wealth is more thrilling than its simple possession. In lust for more he and his assistant, the rascal Mosca, swindle three of the wealthiest men in the city, each believing they are his sole heirs. Daring trickery and avarice ensues in this bitingly fresh version of Ben Jonson’s comedy. Inspired by Southern African Township Theatre, a multi-skilled ensemble of three actors performs to an enticing backdrop of jazz-fusion, delivered with Tangle’s trademark dynamism.

Killing Eve: Making A Psychopath

Find out what truly makes a psychopath, from the leading expert who helped to create Killing Eve’s Villanelle. Dr Mark Freestone has worked on some of the most interesting, infamous, and disturbing psychopath cases of recent times. Using real case studies, Mark will be looking into dangerous minds, while sharing secrets from behind the scenes of Killing Eve.

Do you remember the scene where Villanelle dresses up as her handler at a mock birthday party? That happened to Mark, who was hired by Killing Eve to work with Phoebe Waller Bridge to make Jody Comer’s character psychologically convincing. 

Exploring the many factors that make a psychopath, the complexities and contradictions of their emotions and behaviour, as well as an examination of how the lives of psychopaths develop inside and outside the institutions that are supposed to contain them, this talk will open up a window into the world of those who operate in a void of normal human emotion.

BIOGRAPHY: Dr Mark Freestone

Following a background in social science, he has since come to work mainly in the field of forensic mental health, conducting both epidemiological and health services research into the efficacy of treatments for offenders. He is also an Honorary Senior Research Fellow at East London NHS Foundation Trust and a Fellow of the Alan Turing Institute. He has also consulted on forensic mental health issues for NHS England. Dr Freestone’s current work includes: the epidemiology of violence; outcomes research in forensic mental health services; causal inference networks for violence risk management; clinical sub-types of personality disorder and psychopathy; substance misuse as a risk factor for violence; and patterns of service use by young men in the UK. His current research is into the understanding of causal mechanisms in risk assessment using advanced statistical modelling, and the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions for offenders with personality disorder. Dr Freestone has previously held grants from both the NIHR and ESRC. In 2015 he received funding from the UK Ministry of Justice to conduct a mixed-method evaluation of the combined Ministry of Justice/NHS England initiative to develop Psychologically Informed Planned Environments (PIPEs) within HM Prison Service and the Probation service across England and Wales.

From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes a masculine and superstitious tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s who are faced with solitude. Domestic tensions rise and fall and claustrophobia sets in as the pair start to lose their sanity and become threatened by their worst nightmares.  Shot in shimmering 35mm black and white The Lighthouse is brilliant, original and distinctive. Eggers continues to prove himself one of contemporary cinema’s most audacious and innovative filmmakers – finding ways entirely of his own of terrifying his audiences.  Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe boast extraordinary performances mastering lost dialects with ease as they compete for the best insult to hurl at each other.  ‘Just like the lighthouse beam, this is dazzling and dangerous’ THE GUARDIAN

He approaches the interview with scepticism, as he finds it hard to believe that anyone can have such a good nature. But Roger's empathy, kindness and decency soon chips away at Vogel's jaded outlook on life, forcing the reporter to reconcile with his own painful past.

WITTERQUICK’s sound combines the intensity of punk-rock and the feel of the 70’s and 80’s stadium greats, with the melody of a pop band.

The Rat Affair are proud to present RAT - The Pied Piper of Hamelin, reimagined through live music and shadow puppetry. Amidst a musical score that shifts between sensationally boisterous Eastern European folk and sparse reflective piano works, RAT tells the tale of a curious man who offers to rid a corrupt town in crisis by driving its vermin infestation away. It questions the very nature of theatre by removing speech from the narrative, choosing instead to adopt the use of exquisite puppetry and projection to present a powerful spectacle of light and sound. RAT brings together a host of outstanding artists working in theatre and performance, promising to be one of the most exciting experiences of 2020.
‘It awakes our senses and imagination, provoking those fundamental questions of human condition’ Agnieszka Blonska, Theatre Director & Senior Lecturer at Falmouth University ‘Fiercely beautiful imagery with extraordinary music and a biting political comment’ Mike Shepherd, Artistic Director of Kneehigh ‘That’s what being in love sounds like - dramatic and blistering and gorgeous’ Sarah Gosling, BBC Introducing

Riot of the Freelance Mind does The Hinterland is a tragi-comic exploration of living and juggling creative lives alongside everyday ‘real life’ pressures.  We explore what it means to be a performer/actor/creative/writer in today’s world. How do we live? How do we survive between jobs?  We look at the tensions of auditioning, interviews, workshops and also at competitiveness, age, self-esteem and how we find our ‘voice’.  In a series of overlapping and interlinking monologues we deconstruct our pasts, present and future to define or re-define who we are. All this is sprinkled with an eclectic mix of dialogue, poetry, music, projections and voice over, combined with a bit of the quirky, the honest and the irreverent.   

Audience Feedback

‘Compelling and moving’ ‘Really honest and funny, a cracking group of women!’ ‘Really enjoyed it! Funny, heart-breaking honesty, gorgeous to hear women’s stories of an idolised industry - captured the struggles versus the sheer joy perfectly’ ‘Absolutely loved your performances – the personal stories really connected and the funny ones really landed!’ ‘So much rang true.’ ‘Belly laughs with real poignancy’

Flo & Joan

Before The Screaming Starts

Following last year’s sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Festival, London's Soho Theatre, national UK tour and at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, musical comedy sisters Flo & Joan have a new hour of their dark and waggish songs to parade about the place.  'These intricately crafted, flawlessly performed numbers will have you howling with laughter one minute, wiping away a tear the next.' THE TELEGRAPH 'Their style is stiletto sharp, their diction perfect as they race through their complex rhymes’ EVENING STANDARD 'If Flanders & Swann and Flight of the Conchords and Garfunkel & Oates had a six-way time-travelling gang-bang that somehow mixed all their DNA, the offspring might end up sounding something like Flo and Joan.'  STEVE BENNETT, CHORTLE]]>

Viridian Ensemble

PLATFORM

Viridian Ensemble


Viridian are an ensemble of interdisciplinary instrumentalists based in Bristol, who advocate for Womxn in experimental arts from eclectic specialisms and backgrounds. Their ethereal blend of image, voice, cello and double bass re-imagines folkloric forms and tropes of femininity, using improvisation of both sound and image (digital & analogue) to produce a blended dialogue of textural depths. Founded in 2017 by Dali de Saint Paul (vocal), Liz Muir (cello), Caitlin Alais Callahan (double bass) and Laura Phillips (16mm films, digital projections & waterphone), Viridian’s current iteration also includes punk queercore percussive instrumentalist Esme Betamax, and special guest artists such as the classically, trained flautist & improviser, Tina Hitchens. Inspired by the vanguards of feminist free improvisation such as Les Diaboliques & Feminist Improvising Group, Viridian is open to different levels of musicianship and training; a mix of differing abilities, which champions unexpected collaborations as a serendipitous idiosyncrasy of music and expanded film.
Find out more about Viridian here >>

Platform

Over the coming season Exeter Phoenix will be developing Platform, a new programme that reflects the diversity of contemporary visual arts practice made by artists based in the SW region. It will offer opportunities for emerging artists to test out ideas, new work and recent developments in their practice in a public arena, using a variety of spaces throughout our busy building.

Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020

Happiness is A State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema The UK’s largest festival of Japanese cinema is back for its 17th edition under the concept of ‘happiness’. Happiness, though universal in its importance, is felt so subjectively by humankind that the definition of the concept is still very elusive. And yet, the search for happiness has long provided Japanese cinema with a staple theme, and it is within its framework that the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020 has been curated. Embracing the rich and complex spectrum of emotions that go hand in hand with this concept, the programme seeks to present the highs and lows experienced in pursuit of happiness in Japan, showcasing diverse cinematic voices as they shine a light on stories of love, social inclusion, the resilience of humankind through times of hardship, and non-conventional paths to achieving and maintaining joy. Since 2004, the Japan Foundation has showcased, in close partnership with distinguished film venues across the nation, some of the finest Japanese films in order to introduce their versatility and uniqueness to the UK. With a line-up of contemporary titles that have never had a UK release, documentaries, anime, and classic masterpieces, there is always something for everybody.

Botanical Prints

Three Week Course: From Thu 5 mar


SESSION DATES:

  • Thu 5 Mar: 2pm - 4.30pm
  • Thu 12 Mar: 2pm - 4.30pm
  • Thu 19 Mar: 2pm - 4.30pm

This course will use some early photographic processes and techniques including; photograms, cyanotype and pinhole cameras to capture different and intriguing plant forms to create unique prints of botanical specimens.
Week 1 Cyanotype We will explore cyanotypes – a Victorian process originated in the 1840s by John Hershel which produces a characteristically blue print. Anna Atkins was inspired by him and used this process to produce images of plants, ferns, and seaweed. Cyanotypes have also been used to reproduce architectural drawings (known as Blueprints). The process is fairly straightforward, and you will learn how to mix chemicals to produce your own light sensitive paper. Objects are then placed on the paper and exposed to light to create a blue and white photographic image. Week 2 Photograms From the beginnings of photography images have been made by placing objects onto light sensitive paper, for example Fox Talbot and his photogenic drawings and Man Ray’s Rayographs. We now refer to images made in this way as photograms. In this session we will be using photographic paper in a darkroom and exposing it to light, learning how to develop and fix the images we create. The results are incredibly effective, visually stunning black and white photographs without using a camera. Week 3 Anthotypes An anthotype is an image created using photosensitive material from plants. In this session we will be using plant material to create a photosensitive emulsion to make light sensitive paper on which we can print. All materials are provided but you may want to bring along your own botanical specimens to print.

‘This tour won’t be another arsehole comic talking about his girlfriend or the funny things his kids do or the funny things cats do or how he doesn’t understand the internet or bleeding Brexit… This is ALEXEI FUCKING SAYLE you’ll be seeing.’


Following the huge success of his popular Radio 4 show ‘Imaginary Sandwich Bar’, alternative comedy legend Alexei Sayle is returning to stages across the UK in 2020 with his first stand-up tour in 7 years. Of his return to the stage, Alexei said: ‘I can’t wait to hit the road on a UK tour once more in 2020. And I’ll be kicking it off on the 31st January, which, given a certain delay announced last week, means I might have quite a lot to talk about…’ Sayle has been performing stand-up for forty years since the day he invented modern comedy. He’d like to stay at home with his cat but he’s still really funny, dangerously political and wildly energetic so he feels compelled to do a live tour. The least you can do is to come and see him.
  ‘Master of standup comedy’ THE GUARDIAN ‘Sayle’s humour has a streak of anarchy that sets him apart’ THE TIMES

Joanne Shaw Taylor

Following the release of her acclaimed seventh album, Reckless Heart and a sold-out European tour of the same name in early 2019, Joanne Shaw Taylor, one of Britain’s most celebrated and exciting blues-rock artists, has announced that she will be touring through the UK again in March 2020. Joanne Shaw Taylor was discovered by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics at the age of 16 who, having watched her play, immediately invited her on the road with his supergroup D.U.P. - a career in music was born and in the proceeding years, her incredible guitar playing saw her build an army of plaudits including Jimmy Cliff, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Wonder and Annie Lennox. Still only 24, and fast become one of the most sought after guitarist in the world of rock, she released her first album White Sugar (2009), unleashing her distinct soulful voice on the world and demonstrating a songwriting prowess way beyond her years - the world of blues rock had a new star! Now, a decade on, Joanne has proven herself as a prolific songwriter, releasing seven acclaimed albums in under ten years, each increasingly more successful with her 2019 Reckless Heart breaking into the top 20 and cementing herself as one of the most important exports in British blues-rock. Limited VIP tickets will give a rare opportunity to watch the band soundcheck in front of just a handful of people as well as meeting Joanne - these tickets are exclusively available through www.joanneshawtaylor.com.

Pinterest is the platform that we can get lost in very easily! Full of incredible images, inspiration and information, it is impossible to limit the time you spend on it… But how can you use it for your own business?

  • How to use Pinterest
  • Business accounts
  • What are the benefits for you?
  • How can you encourage followers?
  • How can it help you?
  • Understanding keywords and descriptions
  • What visuals to use and how to create them

We will get a plan of action together so that you can leave the session ready to build your boards!

A single glove in the street, a torn up love letter in a Metro carriage, a pair of shoes hanging from a telephone wire, a phone box that rings as you walk past… You never see them, but you see their work. So subtle you might not even notice. Snags in the fabric of everyday life. Objects, moments, the seeds of stories, the odd little things you come across every day that make you think, what’s going on there…? The Department of Distractions, an organisation so clandestine you won’t have heard of them. They say their job is to plant stories in the world “to make life more interesting.” Others would argue that their job is as much to stop us looking in certain directions. But things are starting to unravel, a story they started has got out of hand, they’ve lost control of it and now they’re in danger of being exposed. How far will they go to maintain their anonymity? How much are you willing to believe? A conspiracy-theory documentary-exposé detective story for the 21st century that asks: what aren’t you looking at?

JAPAN FOUNDATION TOURING FILM PROGRAMME 2020

Happiness is A State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema The UK’s largest festival of Japanese cinema is back for its 17th edition under the concept of ‘happiness’. Happiness, though universal in its importance, is felt so subjectively by humankind that the definition of the concept is still very elusive. And yet, the search for happiness has long provided Japanese cinema with a staple theme, and it is within its framework that the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020 has been curated. Embracing the rich and complex spectrum of emotions that go hand in hand with this concept, the programme seeks to present the highs and lows experienced in pursuit of happiness in Japan, showcasing diverse cinematic voices as they shine a light on stories of love, social inclusion, the resilience of humankind through times of hardship, and non-conventional paths to achieving and maintaining joy. Since 2004, the Japan Foundation has showcased, in close partnership with distinguished film venues across the nation, some of the finest Japanese films in order to introduce their versatility and uniqueness to the UK. With a line-up of contemporary titles that have never had a UK release, documentaries, anime, and classic masterpieces, there is always something for everybody.

Lloyd Griffith

Not just a pretty face

Lloyd is back on the road for his third UK stand up tour. It’s been a busy few years for Grimsby’s favourite (for now, anyway) comedian/choirboy. He’s recently been supporting Jack Whitehall on tour, and you may have also seen him in on 8 out of 10 cats (Channel 4), Can You Beat The Bookies? (BBC), Soccer AM (Sky One), Flinch (Netflix), Live At The Comedy Store (Comedy Central), Roast Battle (Comedy Central), Songs of Praise (BBC2) ((lol)). 
'Lloyd bounces off the audience and has everyone laughing along with him. This is an hour of uplifting stand-up that’ll have you smiling for days. A warm, relatable and hilarious show' THE SUNDAY POST 'Disarmingly good’ DOMINIC MAXWELL, THE TIMES ‘Lloyd Griffith has to be my favourite find from this show. It's not often you get a comic and a choirboy rolled into one, and he's seriously talented in both areas’ LEICESTER MERCURY 'What is evident from the outset is that Griffith is both bursting with talent. He is a funny, charming, self-effacing comic who very obviously gains great joy from making people laugh. It is evident in the way he feeds off the audience'. JOE.CO.UK

GARDNA

'Good Time Not A Long Time' Tour

  • Hollie Cook, Kiko Bun & Charli Brix
  • Live Sax From Tailored Sound & Fat Stash
  • With Special guests Don Letts, Kreed

  • Doors: 7.30pm - 11:00pm
  • After Party in The Bar: 11pm - 1am

Good Time Not A Long Time is the debut solo album from Bristol based MC, Gardna. This album is the culmination of years of dedicated service to the UK’s reggae and dub scenes, that have seen Gardna establish himself as one of the country’s leading MCs and hosts. Good Time Not A Long Time is a fine insight into how Gardna has reached those heights, drawing on influences from multiple genres to create an exceptionally strong and effective fusion of dub, reggae, hip hop, grime and beyond. As you would expect from an artist of Gardna’s calibre, the album is peppered with contributions from a number of notable names, both on the production side and the vocals. The former is mainly handled by the ever reliable Brad Baloo, who is perhaps best known as part of production and DJ duo, The Nextmen as well as credits from regular creative partner Kreed, plus Mungo’s Hifi, Gold Dubs, Coki and Bukka. The guest players feature an equally strong team of vocalists with Hollie Cook, Eva Lazarus, Omar, Fox, Charli Brix, Dread MC, Rider Shafique and Taiwan MC all bringing their inimitable flavours to the mix. The combination of all these artists, underpinned by Gardna’s own talent and vision, result in an album which bridges the gaps between the different areas of music thereby creating an audible utopia which will be sure to lure in diehard fans of each genre, while also enticing new listeners into Gardna’s world. To coincide with the album’s release, there will also be a tour to celebrate the occasion. Gardna will be visiting a number of spots across the UK including Exeter, Bristol, London, Newcastle and Glasgow, as well as some dates in Australia & New Zealand and Europe later in the year. Gardna has a reputation for putting on electrifying live performances allowing the audience to experience the album in its rawest form.

Seafret

The east Yorkshire band, made up of Jack Sedman and Harry Draper made a rousing return with this powerful track, produced by Ross Hamilton at Rocket Science Recording Studios, Glasgow. Speaking about the new single, the band comments, 'Sometimes it feels like all the doors are closing around you and you can start losing heart in what you’re doing or where you are in your life. ‘Fall’ was written about overcoming that feeling and never giving up'. Seafret’s emotive debut album Tell Me It’s Real’, released in 2016 through Sweet Jane Recordings / Columbia Records spurred some huge singles including ’Oceans which was nominated for a VMA and featured Game of Thrones actor Maisie Williams, ‘Wildfire’ and ‘Atlantis’ to name a few. They returned with their ‘Monsters EP’ last September. The four-track EP – which marked the beginning of their collaboration with Ross Hamilton on production/co-writing - featured lead single and EP title track ‘Monsters’, as well as ‘Can’t Look Away’, ‘Bad Blood’ and ‘Heartless’. ‘Fall’ follows on from Seafret’s most recent single release ‘Loving You’ which is accompanied by a very emotive video, directed by Stuart Alexander. They’ve clocked up an impressive 300 million streams across Spotify and Apple and 170 million views on YouTube and have toured with the likes of Hozier, James Bay, Kodaline and Jake Bugg not to mention their own extensive headline tours in the UK, Europe, Russia and beyond.

Abbi Bayliss

WALKWAY GALLERY

Abbi Bayliss | YOUNG SW ARTISTS SHOWCASE #2


Abbi Bayliss’s work centres on her experience as a woman of colour in Britain. Her digital portrait illustrations consistently feature women of colour and she is uplifted by either in her immediate community, such as family and friends, or the greater global one, such as positive role models. To Abbi, representation is a really important theme in her work, as she enjoys creating art that reflects the faces that aren’t featured enough in the arts. She’s inspired by women in all creative fields from poetry, theatre, literature, music and visual arts which Abbi translates by illustrating them. This is the second of two exhibitions that form an exchange between Exeter Phoenix, Bristol’s Creative Youth Network and a young emerging artist based in each city. This project pilots a new relationship between the two organisations, providing support, mentoring and opportunities for young, emerging artists to gain experience and access to the art-world. It aims to offer the artists a chance to access new audiences for their artwork and to overcome or meet any particular barriers they may face in developing their professional practice.

JAPAN FOUNDATION TOURING FILM PROGRAMME 2020

Happiness is A State of Mind: Joy and Despair in Japanese Cinema The UK’s largest festival of Japanese cinema is back for its 17th edition under the concept of ‘happiness’. Happiness, though universal in its importance, is felt so subjectively by humankind that the definition of the concept is still very elusive. And yet, the search for happiness has long provided Japanese cinema with a staple theme, and it is within its framework that the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2020 has been curated. Embracing the rich and complex spectrum of emotions that go hand in hand with this concept, the programme seeks to present the highs and lows experienced in pursuit of happiness in Japan, showcasing diverse cinematic voices as they shine a light on stories of love, social inclusion, the resilience of humankind through times of hardship, and non-conventional paths to achieving and maintaining joy. Since 2004, the Japan Foundation has showcased, in close partnership with distinguished film venues across the nation, some of the finest Japanese films in order to introduce their versatility and uniqueness to the UK. With a line-up of contemporary titles that have never had a UK release, documentaries, anime, and classic masterpieces, there is always something for everybody.

Chris Wood *Subject to a £1.50 ticketing system charge. We don’t charge this to make a profit. Find out more >>

Chris Wood

In a world of soundbites and distractions Chris Wood is a truth seeker. His writing is permeated with love and wry intelligence, uplifting and challenging as he celebrates the sheer one-thing-after-anotherness of life. Tom Robinson and Chris Difford are fans while Stick In The Wheel and The Unthanks look to him as an influence. Winner of 6 BBC Folk Awards, he's played with The Royal Shakespeare Company and was a key member of The Imagined Village along with Billy Bragg and Martin Carthy. A wise and soulful craftsman, his concerts are a cliche free zone. 'Chris Wood might be the Ken Loach of songwriting. Very political, but at the same time full of compassion, and he grows sharper and more acute with each passing album. He’s good, quite probably the very best we have today, and we need him more than ever.' FROOTS MAGAZINE
***** - 'As close as it gets to a perfect union of voice and guitar, lyrics and melody, compassion, irony, realism, wit, and humanity.'  THE HERALD ***** - 'Nobody comes even close to equaling his bird’s-eye-view.' THE IRISH TIMES  **** - 'A rarefied talent, both as writer and interpreter.' MOJO

What does it take to make a baby? An accident / right timing / a drunken night / right people / right parts? But what if you don’t have all the right parts? Or you do, and one of them is broken. As it turns out, some things are un-mendable. Egg is a powerful and evocative new aerial theatre production from acclaimed circus theatre company Paper Doll Militia, a highly visual exploration of female fertility, sexuality and choice. Weaving together personal testimony, live original music and stunning aerial artistry, the piece takes audiences on a deeply personal and political journey, following the true story of a woman who gave her eggs to her friend to have a child. Paper Doll Militia’s innovative approach to choreography and poignant use of theatricality have gained the company the reputation of being pioneers in original aerial theatre. The Company was formed in Santa Fe, New Mexico (USA) in 2006, relocated to California in 2008, and set up their UK base in Edinburgh Scotland in 2013. Referred to as “The sophisticated circus of now” (Edinburgh Review), their work seamlessly weaves high octane aerial arts and visual theatre into a contemporary circus spectacle. ★★★★★ THE SKINNY ★★★★★ THE WEE REVIEW ★★★★★ EDINBURGH GUIDE ★★★★★ EDINBURGH FESTIVALS MAGAZINE ★★★★½ TO DO LIST ★★★★ THE STAGE ★★★★ ACROSS THE ARTS

Wille & The Bandits

+ Troy Redfern The band’s latest album Paths encapsulates the excitement and gusto of rock and roll. The album is a breath of fresh air challenging the listener while embracing technology and instrumental possibilities that are afforded to musicians in current times. The singles Find My Way and Four Million Days were playlisted on Planet Rock with Find My Way making it on the A-list for three months. Wille & The Bandits manage to encompass musical diversity which makes their music so appealing. They adopt the musical essence, nostalgia and discovery of the late 60's and 70's and mix rock and roll with a contemporary approach, combining elements of world music, dance music and hip-hop, all of which creates something unique. The Bandits have toured with the likes of Deep Purple, Status Quo, Joe Bonamassa, the Jon Butler Trio and Warren Haynes. In 2014 the band was voted in the Top Ten bands to see at Glastonbury. They also played the Isle of Wight festival as well as at the London Olympics, picked to play by being voted one of UK’s best Live acts. Other festival appearances include Boardmasters and several festivals in Europe. Don’t believe our word but Blues in Britain magazine thinks Wille & The Bandits are eclectic and highly recommend everyone to experience them live. Powerplay magazine describes the band as authentic sounding. The rest of the media has nothing but good things to say about the band, and highly recommend the best way to get the most out of them is by seeing them in concert. The band just returned from their first American tour which included a dream gig in Nashville.
'Their thoughtful ambition, allied to hard-touring independence, remains refreshing' CLASSIC ROCK MAGAZINE  'Wille and the Bandits are a blues rock powerhouse'  GUITARIST MAGAZINE 'If you give them them a chance, these Bandits may steal your heart – they have mine' POWERPLAY MAGAZINE

Troy Redfern

Over the last 12 months Troy Redfern has been relentlessly touring, leaving a blazing trail across the festival main stages in the UK, Europe and Russia. His fiercely powerful, emotive guitar playing and songcraft leaves an ever growing fanbase in his wake!

Viruses That Improve Our Health


We think about viruses as harmful to us, but research by our speaker Martha Clokie shows that some improve our health. These tiny viruses known as ‘phages’ do this by invading bacteria, multiplying, and bursting out, eventually destroying their host. When these are bacteria that attack our bodies, this could be beneficial—our enemy’s enemy is our friend.

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health. As a result, a growing number of infections—such as pneumonia, sepsis and diarrhoea—are harder to treat.

Professor Martha Clokie is leading the fight against antibiotic resistant bacterial infections with this vital research. In particular, her work shows the potential for the use of phages against superbugs such as Clostridium difficile, Salmonella, and Borrelia (the causative agent of Lyme disease).  

In May 2019, headlines around the world told the story of the successful phage treatment of Isabelle Carnell-Holdaway, a sufferer of cystic fibrosis who contracted tuberculosis, who was initially given a 1% chance of survival.

As antibiotic resistance increases, and previously treatable diseases are left without a cure, our speaker asks if phages have a greater role to play in modern medicine.

The fascinating history of phage therapy dates back to the 1910s in Georgia, but never reached widespread use following Stalanist purges, Cold War politics, and the wider use of antibiotics.


BIOGRAPHY: Professor Martha Clokie

Professor of Microbiology, University of Leicester

Martha’s interest is in understanding the ecology and molecular biology of bacteriophages and their relationships with bacterial hosts; both in bacterial pathogens and environmentally important bacteria.

Her work focuses on the exploitation of bacteriophages and phage-derived products as an alternative to treating antibiotic resistant bacterial infections.

INTRODUCTION TO EDITING

ONE DAY COURSE


SESSION DATES:

  • Fri 27 Mar: 10am - 5pm

Film editing is now something that anyone can do at home to a basic level, however to take it to a professional level and understand what works and what doesn’t, takes the same amount of dedication and awareness as any other art form.

You’ll be able to hone the almost infinite possibilities of your footage to create a desired effect and a cohesive whole. Suitable for those looking to create video content for a company or filmmakers look to expand their skill set. The session is taught on mac computers with Adobe Premiere Pro, however a majority of the skills taught are transferable to other platforms and software. We offer a range of film production courses covering scriptwriting, cinematography, sound, editing and visual effects, please do take a look at the full programme of courses available.
Workshop attendees get 10% off all food and hot drinks at the Café Bar.

Motherland is a visceral full bodied dragged up howl of a show exploring nationalism, identity and our ability to speak out. Some people say it’s about British values.

In Motherland Jo Tyabji unapolgetically reclaims the voices of politicians, you-tubers, British Indians and OCIs. In an era of India Rising and people Taking Back Britain, this is a show that asks: who are you, first? Motherland is created and performed by Jo Tyabji (My Name Is My Own and What’s Far is Near – Southbank Centre, Lovely Ugly City – Almeida).

A courageous new work by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award-winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans. Adventurous new writing meets the warmth of a live gig in this heartfelt and personal show, uniquely weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and genre-melding original songs. Unravelling a story of her grandmother's youth in 1940s Germany, Rowan celebrates small acts of resistance and boldly asks a troubling question for our times: can hope for our future be found in the very darkest pockets of our history?

Hayseed Dixie *Subject to a £1.50 ticketing system charge. We don’t charge this to make a profit. Find out more >>

Hayseed Dixie

Hayseed Dixie began one innocent summer day in 2000 when John Wheeler aka Barley Scotch and his pal, dobro and pedal steel player Mike Daly, drank roughly enough whiskey to float a battleship from the Florida Coast over to Portugal and back and decided to play around in John’s East Nashville studio. Having spent the previous few years touring around with assorted country hat-acts, John had assembled a proper pile of recording equipment and also a heroic collection of Bourbon and Scotch. Thus when he and Mike discovered in their drunken epiphany that the Lost Highway of Reverend Hank Williams and the Highway To Hell of Bishop Bon Scott were indeed the same identical stretch of tarmac, they were well and truly prepared to document this historic revelation in situ.

East Nashville, Tennessee in the Summer of 2000 was a proper Bohemian party place. Nobody had any money, but since the playing field was level, nobody much let that get in the way of anything fun, and a few other friends stopped by, drank some whiskey, and played and sang on this recording here and there. And ten classic AC/DC songs were suddenly re-imagined and recorded forever anew, entirely reinvented as Appalachian Mountain hillbilly rave-ups. Everyone danced (oh how they danced!) around the studio room and out onto the front porch and drank more whiskey. You should have been there. Really. You should have. Oh well.

Fast forward through 17 years, 14 further albums - consisting of both original songs and reinterpretations -  and over 1,300 live shows, and Hayseed Dixie have evolved into a proper force, one that some people deeply love, other people truly hate, and quite a lot of people have never heard of. Such is the life of a cult band. Hayseed Dixie are the undisputed creators of the musical genre, Rockgrass.

The Undercover Hippy


Drum and Bass MC turned singer-songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. Described by Tom Robinson (BBC6Music) as being 'like the love-child of Steel Pulse, Kate Tempest and The Sleaford Mods', his music brings together powerful messages, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled MC. Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe. Renowned for the electric atmosphere of their live shows, Billy and his band have performed at some of the UK’s best festivals, including Glastonbury, Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Green Man, The Secret Garden Party, Ireland’s Electric Picnic, and many more. As the music clocks up over 6 million streams on Spotify, the band have been clocking up motorway miles, touring relentlessly, with over 80 shows and festival appearances across the UK and Europe each year. One of Billy’s biggest strengths is the way he manages to pack his songs full of political and social commentary, whilst at the same time remaining playful and uplifting, and in this respect the new album does not disappoint. Covering topics from fake news, internet privacy and the U.S. election, to nappy wearing barristers and best friends trying to snog your mum, this album once again takes you on a rollercoaster of storytelling and thought provoking protest pieces.

These workshops are aimed at Creative Businesses. Whether you are an artist, maker or musician these are practical, digital marketing workshops, to help you grow your business. Facebook is the most well known, and still the most popular, social media platform. However, it is still relevant for businesses because of the saturation of content on the channel and the popularity of other social media forms? This workshop will look at how you can use Facebook for your business, the power of Facebook groups and community and how we can start to create a following. We will be looking at using Facebook from a business perspective; we will touch on promotion and boosting posts as well as live chat. We will be looking at making the most of your Facebook presence and find ways to make Facebook be relevant and important for your business.  We will be hands on so please bring your chosen electronic device – whether you prefer to use a laptop or a tablet. Please sign up to Facebook beforehand if you haven’t already (although this is not a complete beginners workshop so if you need additional support please get in touch.) If you are already signed up please bring all your log in details. We will be keeping this workshop small so there will be plenty of opportunity for some one on one advice and support. There will also be plenty of opportunity to network with your fellow creative friends.

Questioning the relationship between three dancers and three life-size human sculptures, Still Touch is Richard Chappell Dance's collaboration with internationally renowned sculptor Anna Gillespie. Still Touch emotes the personal and human need for touch to be reciprocated by a living and moving person. Created initially for the Royal Opera House’s Month of Sundays Festival, the work explores the sensitive dynamic of touch between performers who are alive in perpetual motion, and individual sculptures of people fixed in time and constant stillness. As RCD’s first interdisciplinary creation, Still Touch dives into the combination of what people can express in motion and what sculpture expresses through image. Following his critically acclaimed first full length work At the end we begin, Richard Chappell Dance's new creation Still Touch will be a continuation of his unique and distinguishable use or ballet, improvisation, floor work and partner work in an intimate and rich new collaboration with visual arts. Still Touch embraces an intimate and emotionally sensitive work that explores the weight felt on the body when devoid of touch and the lightness touch can bring from others who are loved.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN

Easter In Art

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilisation’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment. This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.

Simon Munnery | Alan Parker Urban Warrior Farewell Tour

Show And Tell present


Multi award-winning comedian Simon Munnery reprises his notorious alter ego, the bedsit anarchist Alan Parker Urban Warrior. Once the most radical, now the only radical, Alan returns with the old gold, the old truths, and some new truths (based on the old truths). For over 35 years, Munnery has performed around the world, experimenting with and innovating the stand-up form. In the 1990s, his Alan Parker: Urban Warrior character took the comedy circuit by storm, garnering Munnery his own BBC Radio 1 series, which Time Out London called ‘the funniest thing on Radio One’ and a residency on ITV’s Saturday Live.

1996 saw him collaborate with Graham Linehan and Stewart Lee for BBC2 show, London Shouting, in his Alan Parker guise, and the character also become a regular contributor to NME magazine.


Gloriously inept radical anorak.' THE TIMES

Marx, Engles and Sid Vicious would all have died laughing.’ THE GUARDIAN

Munnery’s parody of a punk rock anarcho snowflake, hand drawn with real love for its subject, returns to a world worse than any he could have imagined in his home decade of the 1980s.STEWART LEE


Simon Munnery is a British Comedy Award nominee, Perrier Award nominee, Sony Radio Award winner and Chortle Award winner. He’s most recently appeared in C4’s acclaimed Flowers, and will soon be seen in Will Sharpe’s Louis Wain movie biopic, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Claire Foy.

Cherelle Sappleton

Cherelle Sappleton

Among Other Things


Exeter Phoenix is pleased to present Among Other Things a solo exhibition of new and recent works by Cherelle Sappleton. Sappleton’s practice centres on an exploration of photographic media, with an interest in feminist agendas and performance, utilising abstraction and surrealist aesthetics. Recent works have been grounded primarily in processes of collage and abstraction, which are used to explore and respond to issues of representation, agency and the materiality of photographic imagery. Utilising a collection of shared and appropriated source imagery, Sappleton seeks to find alternative ways to address the problems she identifies with representing ‘blackness’ and the (female) body as an artist. While still alluding to the body, her work moves away from actually depicting or using the figure explicitly and, through the process of making, the works become affirmations of the fluidity and flux of gender and identity, materialising into a proposition for a new way of being and thinking. By fragmenting and distorting the original images she seeks to complicate them – intentionally making them difficult to read - in an effort to reflect the complicated layering of image and identity, not only in her personal experience but also as a universal human experience.

EXHIBITION PREVIEW

Thu 13 Feb | 6PM – 8PM | FREE Join the artist for a glass of wine and a first chance to see the exhibition.

Ed Wynne

+ Support TBA

Ed Wynne is undoubtedly a gifted instrumentalist. He is credited as one of the linchpins of the UK festival scene’s re-emergence along with his band Ozric Tentacles, who formed at Stonehenge Free Festival 1983 and became staples of the Glastonbury Festival, with their most recent performance at Glastonbury in 2016 on the Glade stage. With an incredible flair for creating masterful tapestries of sound, and for having sold over a million records worldwide, Ed Wynne’s debut solo album, Shimmer into Nature (Kscope), will be re-launched with bonus tracks to coincide with the tour. Shimmer into Nature was recorded and inspired by the different locations Ed Wynne travelled to over three years, from deep in the Colorado Mountains, to the coastlines of Cornwall and South Devon, before being completed on Scotland’s East Coast by the Firth of Forth. Expect an enthralling performance of Ed Wynne’s solo material and classic Ozrics.

A fund-raiser for Phonic FM, Exeter’s sound alternative community radio station.

Lanterns On The Lake

+ Wyldest


It’s strange – not to mention fundamentally disconcerting - to live through turbulent times. Yet as many feel like the world is slipping out of control, artists are enlivened as they seek to make sense of the shifting sands. Hazel Wilde of Lanterns on the Lake is now a songwriter necessarily emboldened. On Spook the Herd, the band’s fourth record, her voice and preoccupations rise to the fore like never before. In tandem, the band break new ground on a set of songs that are unavoidably direct – and crucial. Wilde does nothing less than dive headlong into the existential crises of our times. Beginning with the record’s title - a pointed comment at the dangerously manipulative tactics of ideologues - its nine songs turn the microscope to issues including our hopelessly polarised politics, social media, addiction, grief and the climate crisis. The world is brought into focus, but Wilde’s style is not declarative. She also proves herself a songwriter possessed of a rare talent for finding the personal contours to contemporary issues, fully inhabiting them to make them real. On “Baddies” she sings of the lacerating division in our online spaces with knowing, biting irony as simply commenting deepens the rift. “Blue Screen Beams” is a litany of worries - fallible idols, paranoia and hopelessness, technological distractions worming into consciousness, broken relationships - but finds a steadying refusal to give up hope in the centre of the storm. As she says of her work, the process is “...exploring what it’s like to live this point in time - not just as an observer but as someone experiencing it: it’s where a personal life and politics are intertwined, because the two aren’t mutually exclusive.” Recorded as live where possible, the band’s natural touchstones of gauzy dream-pop and monumental post rock still float in the air, but listening to Lanterns on the Lake now feels like actually sitting in the corner of the room as they play. As guitarist and producer Paul Gregory says of approaching a fourth album, “There was a sense of release in terms of what kind of music we felt we could make. The idea of what kind of band you’re supposed to be really disappeared. It was great; you felt you could do whatever you like.” Musically, this is a leaner Lanterns on the Lake – at times unusually stark. Their sound has been beautifully winnowed into something more pared back, urgent and direct – in-keeping with Wilde’s messages - on an album loaded with songs marked by an arresting intimacy. “Swimming Lessons”, first teased as an in-progress idea on Instagram, is writhing and supple as Gregory’s arpeggiated guitar dovetails with Ol Ketteringham’s pulsating drumming and Wilde’s keening vocal. “Every Atom” rides on insistent beats which lay a bed for a warped and playfully robotic guitar line, while “Secrets and Medicine” weaves and lopes achingly, weaving its atmosphere from Spartan means: piano, celestial guitars and diminished brass.
While Wilde pored over the bulk of the songs in isolation before the band developed and finessed them, remarkably Spook the Herd marks the first time the band has left their native Newcastle upon Tyne to record in a studio. Moving to Distant City studios in Yorkshire, where Joss Worthington engineered the album, shook up comfortable mindsets. Wilde admits: “We are a pretty insular band in how we work, and trusting other people enough to allow them to get involved is not always easy for us.” Yet once recording began, any trepidation was swept away. The band barrelled through sessions, finishing the record in just three weeks. This uncovers the threads of a long-term musical understanding that Wilde, Gregory and Ketteringham share, and it’s invigorating to hear them regathered. Lanterns on the Lake, completed by bassist Bob Allan and viola player Angela Chan, have always known how to cannily manipulate texture and space. But rarely before have they captured such sheer presence. Stripping layers away, unearthing their essence, proves to be a new alchemy as their sound is writ large at its boldest – and its simplest. Yet Wilde’s romantic streak is still the record’s beating heart. It can be a characteristically dark one, as in the obsessed narrator of “When it All Comes True”, or its counterpoint in the last-night-on-earth abandon of “Before They Excavate”. Mining emotion in our fractured times unearths an inescapable truth: despite our seemingly myriad differences, all we have is each other. It’s a hopeful beam of light shone into the darkness, and balances the cynicism and dread elsewhere. As stately drums thud and guitar feedback wails and roils and rises around her on closing track “A Fitting End”, Wilde sings - almost presciently - “What a die-for moment this turned out to be.” Spook the Herd contains plenty such moments to discover and savour.

Japanese Woodblock Printing | Botanical Prints

Two Day Weekend Workshop


Session Dates:

  • Sat 18 Apr: 10.30am - 4pm
  • Sun 19 Apr: 10.30am - 4pm

With a Focus on floral and botanical shapes, form, and abstraction this short course is ideal for both those trying this beautiful traditional Japanese technique for the first time and for those who wish to learn more. Learn the process of designing for woodblock, with emphasis on botanical shape form and composition considerations that give you a solid foundation for any artistic practice, though the thrill of carving and creating your own custom prints might be hard to beat! Work with the wood to carve curvilinear shapes and learn how to create stark and clean prints that have a precise and professional finish. Explore the possibility of working with watercolour inks, producing both vivid and subtle hues that give your work a lasting luminous quality. Numbers are limited to ensure that you will experience a unique and engaging workshop in which you can experiment and develop your own ideas and style. Day 1 will begin with a walk around various areas of the city picking up ideas and inspiration. We will then back to the studio for group work focusing on drawing and carving of the woodblock. Day 2 will be focussed on printing and you will have plenty of time to create a set of prints to take away with you. There will be lots of opportunities to experiment with colour and different papers and you will learn all about how to treat your paper before and after printing.
Skills/Techniques Covered;
  • Designing for woodblock
  • Piecing out the design onto wood
  • Using cutting tools safely for a clean print
  • Managing paper, rice and paints
  • Printing and aftercare

Materials: All materials will be provided by the tutor. The items you will need to bring with you are listed below. Please bring with you:
  • Any sketches or photos that inspire you, but this is not compulsory (Keep ideas simple!!!)
  • you might like to bring your own watercolours (which must be in tubes) as the tutor will just have basic colours
  • Any of your own paint brushes you want to use.
  • Wear something that can be splashed without disaster, (although it is not a particularly messy process)
  • A cushion for your bums

Course Tutor: Adrian Holmes

Adrian is a multi disciplinary artist whose primary focus is woodblock printing. He fell in love with the art of printing when living in Japan and began to study this beautiful craft and its various techniques.

Fiona Irene Graf

GALLERY333

Fiona Irene Graf


Fiona’s practice is driven by a deep interest in the character and complexion of the materials she works with. Her ideas are attempts to grasp the essence of those materials, and to get a holistic understanding of their nature.

Instead of using a material in order to fulfil the function of converting a concept into something corporeal, Fiona’s work is primarily led by the material, thus it almost becomes the idea in itself. Therefore, the outcome of her working process is highly unpredictable and often very spontaneous.

Fiona is aiming to create situations that enable the viewer to gain an immediate understanding of the compositions as a whole in the direct relation to the spaces they are in. Her works are an essay to explore the confinements of a space, and are concerned with questions of territoriality and the transgression of limits in general. Most recently, her practice increasingly focuses on interactivity and public sphere.

Leveret

ANDY CUTTING • SAM SWEENEY • ROB HARBRON


Leveret is a unique collaboration between three of England's finest folk musicians. Andy Cutting (button accordion), Sam Sweeney (fiddle) and Rob Harbron (concertina) are each regarded as exceptional performers and masters of their instruments. Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity. Leveret’s music is not arranged in the conventional sense and the trio rely on mutual trust and musical interaction to create new settings of their repertoire in the moment, with no two performances alike. Their playing is relaxed and natural, drawing audiences in and inviting them to share in music making that is truly spontaneous and yet deeply timeless. Fiddler Sam Sweeney was the 2015 BBC Folk Awards Musician of the Year, directs the National Youth Folk Ensemble and is known for his work in Bellowhead and The Full English, and his new solo album The Unfinished Violin. Melodeon genius Andy Cutting, a four-time BBC Folk Awards Best Musician, is a compelling solo performer and works with Blowzabella, Topette, June Tabor, and Roger Daltry. Concertina wizard Rob Harbron leads the English Acoustic Collective summer school and is known for his work with The Full English (Best Group and Best Album BBC Folk Awards 2014), Emily Portman, Emma Reid, and Jon Boden. Leveret's music is firmly rooted in the English tradition but sounds fresh and new. With their first three albums and over a long string of sell-out gigs, the trio have built a strong reputation as superb musicians, fine tunesmiths and captivating performers. On their new album Diversions they have brought their trademark groove, energy and intuitive playing to bear on a newly unearthed set of upbeat and accessible traditional gems – truly great music from a band at the top of their game.
'Music of a rich, sinewy immersion, guided by a mutual sense of exploration, space and a very English kind of swing. It’s an intimate, contemporary reinvention of the source material' THE GUARDIAN 'This glimmering set of instrumentals cuts unfailingly elegant lines' THE SUNDAY TIMES  'Sublime, exquisite music – don't miss them' MARTIN SIMPSON

A chambermaid, a hotel room and a dead woman. It’s not what it looks like, really, it’s not. It was self-defence… and anyway the woman was asking for it. The chambermaid considers herself to be a pretty normal person; she reads books. She pretended to read the party manifestos at the General Election.  She’s even read The Psychopath Test and she’s pretty sure she’s not one so…  Ladykiller is a blood-soaked morality tale about power, privilege, and tearing up the gender rule book on psychopathy; a jet-black comedy for the age of the gig economy. Ladykiller presents us with a genuinely complex and compelling female character, tapping into the feminist zeitgeist in a most unexpected way. Ladykiller was declared 'a smash hit' after a sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 which garnered considerable critical acclaim. 
★★★★★    ‘a smash hit at this fringe and beyond’ Broadway Baby ★★★★★  ‘Madeline Gould's script is unflinching…’-  The Skinny  ★★★★★  ‘an eerily convincing portrait of an unhinged mind.’   Three Weeks ★★★★    ‘a very funny and refreshingly offbeat comedy from The Thelmas.’ The Stage ★★★★    ‘ Hannah McClean is superb as the maid.’  The Scotsman ★★★★  ‘a bracing… monologue of fierce intensity.’  The List ★★★★  ‘a mesmeric performance.’  Fringe Guru ★★★★ ‘A bloody brilliant hymn to the dark side of a zero hours worker’ To Do List ★★★★  ‘one of the best written one-woman pieces at this year’s Fringe’  Miro Magazine
Running time: 65 mins (no interval)  Age guidance: due to the complex themes, language and violent nature of story, Ladykiller is better suited to ages 16+ Content Warning: swearing, fake blood, descriptions of medical procedures, violence, murder and sexual assault.

Line Up


CASSIA

 It’s hard not to smile when Cassia are in the room – be it during an interview or watching them joyfully play headline dates to sold-out audiences. Their infectious personalities glow just as much as their sun-drenched calypso sound which, as Clash described, “transforms even the dreariest of days into a feel good carnival.” Cassia combine the positive indie pop of bands like Foals and Vampire Weekend with the jazz-tinged afrobeats of Fela Kuti and Ebo Taylor and American folk influences like Paul Simon to create an individual sound that uplifts. In the words of Gigwise, the music comes from a band “on a mission to spread positivity.”


OCTOBER DRIFT

'...a muscular slug of sugar-coated power rock' Q MAGAZINE

'A flourishing reputation for live shows' THE INDEPENDENT

Anticipation is building ahead of the release of October Drift’s debut album Forever Whatever on January 24th. Picture The National with fuzz pedals, add in one of the most blistering live shows in Europe right now, and you’re still not even close to the impact this band will have on you. Guaranteed to get Exeter moving this April.


PLUS Hotly tipped Bristol indie-pop band Make Friends / Noisy and energetic duo Moriaty, who’ve been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic / Exeter’s shoe gaze trio Soot Sprite, who have just released a brilliant EP which is generating a real buzz / Frantic and energetic buzz band Mother Vulture / Local favourites Dead Ground with their passionate, riff heavy and melodic rock / Bristol’s Pollyanna Blue, who are new on the scene and building a reputation for heartfelt and hard hitting alt-rock 

AND a whole stage of acoustic talent, including our SECRET HEADLINER (we’re struggling to keep this one quiet), Hamish Goodwin of indie folk band The Lures and more TBA.

 Be part of Exeter’s flourishing indie rock scene!


Acts will be spread across two of Exeter's most iconic live music venues; Exeter Phoenix and Exeter Cavern.

Massive Wagons

+ Special Guests

If ever there was a band that personified the phrase 'good things come to those who wait,' it’s Massive Wagons. Whilst the Lancaster hard rock quintet have been active for a decade now, 2018 was the year the band truly made their mark on the music industry, touring with the likes of Status Quo, Dead Daisies and The Wildhearts, and landing at No. 16 in the UK Top 20 with their fourth LP, ‘Full Nelson’.
Massive Wagons have come a long way since their humble beginnings as a pub band. Whilst they’ve maintained a keen work ethic and steady release schedule since day one (chalking up an impressive discography with 2011 debut ‘Fire It Up’, 2014’s ‘Fight The System’ and 2016’s ‘Welcome To the World’), the thought that they’d one day be sitting pretty in the charts alongside their childhood heroes seemed like a far-off pipe dream, even just 12 months ago.
