SONG 2017 Sensing Our World

Additional Place Info: B2A Lecture Theatre H (near bus interchange)
Our perception and experience of the world around us is constructed of sensory stimulation and the integration of sensory information across the senses. Each sensor in our body responds to different sources of information, including electromagnetic radiation reaching our eyes, or sound pressure changes reaching our ears. These sensory signals are integrated and interpreted by the central nervous system. This meeting will use current work to illustrate the neurosensory system in health and disease. SoNG is a unique opportunity for researchers from different aspects of neuroscience in Southampton to come together and share their work and ideas. The speakers and content of the meeting will reflect this diversity.

It continues into the poetic universe of the French chansons by Brel, Piaf, Ferre and further to the Argentinian world of Tango by Astor Piazzolla. Ute walks through the backstreets of Paris, Berlin, New York and Buenos Aires and lets ancient ghosts with new faces tell the stories of the lost, of love, survival, passion, dreams, societies, the past and the future.
 
Ute also performs her own songs to connect the yesterday with the today through her own stories about these places and about life.

Reasons to be Cheerful (19:30)

19:30 - 2017-09-30 22:00
2017-09-26T19:30:00+01:002017-09-30T22:00:00+01:00
Following a hugely successful tour in 2012, Reasons to be Cheerful will visit seven regions around the country this year, including Nuffield Southampton Theatres from 26-30 September 2017. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ seminal album ‘New Boots and Panties!!’, this coming of age tale rejoices in the infectious and enduring music of Ian Dury and the Blockheads. Part gig, part play, Reasons to be Cheerful features a catalogue of the band’s hits, including the disability rights anthem ‘Spasticus Autisticus’, which was performed by the cast at the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony, as well as stone-cold classic songs like ‘Hit Me with Your Rhythm Stick’ and ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’, brought to life by an inclusive cast of 15 actors and musicians. Using Graeae’s signature theatrical language, all performances of Reasons to be Cheerful seamlessly include British Sign Language, audio description and creative captioning. The parallels with the show’s setting are clear; It is 1979. Labour has just lost the General Election to the Tories. Strikes rock the nation and Ian Dury and the Blockheads’ ‘Reasons to be Cheerful (Part 3)’ is climbing the charts. Die-hard fans Vinnie and Colin are on a mission to see Ian Dury and the Blockheads play Hammersmith Odeon. With no tickets to a sold-out gig their journey throws more at them than they could have ever expected…. Reprising their roles from the hugely successful 2010 and 2012 tours, Stephen Lloyd will play Vinnie alongside Stephen Collins as Colin, Dan McGowan as Nick/Dave, Karen Spicer as Pat, Wayne ‘Pickles’ Norman as Pickles and Jude Mahon in the role of Debbie. With John Kelly on lead vocals, the on-stage band is completed by Paul Sirett on guitar, Nixon Rosembert on bass and Paula Stanbridge-Faircloth on drums. Jenny Sealey, Director of Reasons to be Cheerful and Artistic Director at Graeae Theatre Company, said: “I am beyond thrilled that our Reasons to be Cheerful gang are dusting off their Dr. Martens and going back out on the road one final time in a new production of our hit show, thanks to support from Arts Council England's Strategic Touring Fund. “We will be well and truly raising the roof up and down the country with the brilliantly anarchic music of Ian Dury and the Blockheads, whose punk sentiment speaks louder than ever as we fight against the brutal cuts that Deaf and disabled people, and millions of others, have faced in recent years.” Jemima Dury, daughter of Ian Dury, said: “I’m so excited for everyone who will see Reasons to Be Cheerful on this 2017 tour. It’s energizing, it’s moving and it’s enormous fun. It comes as close as you can get to a 1979 Ian Dury and the Blockheads gig.” An extensive community engagement programme will take place alongside this production, inviting original protest songs for a generation to be included in the show’s tour. Tickets are available from the Box Office 023 8067 1771 or online at nstheatres.co.uk

A selection of sonatas by Scarlatti opens the evening followed by Busoni’s transcription of Bach’s great Chaconne for solo violin. Beethoven’s two sonatas come from two different periods of the composer’s life: Op 26, with its famous funeral march, from 1802, the same year as the first symphony, and Op 109 the first of his final set of three sonatas.

RGS-IBG Planet Earth II: Cities with Fredi Devas (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00
2017-09-28T20:00:00+01:002017-09-28T22:00:00+01:00
Cities are growing at a faster rate than any other habitat on Earth. They may seem an unlikely place for animals to thrive, but they can be a world of surprising opportunity.
 
Leopards prowl the streets of Mumbai, langurs are revered as religious deities in Jodhpur, and locals live in harmony with wild hyenas in Harar. Many animals, however, struggle to cope in the urban jungle. As the architects of this environment, can humans choose to build cities that are homes for both them and wildlife?
 
Fredi Devas, Producer of BBC Planet Earth II: Cities, takes us behind the scenes of this ground-breaking documentary series.
 
Fredi Devas is a wildlife filmmaker who cares deeply about the natural world and the challenges it faces. After completing a PhD on Chacma baboons in Namibia, Fredi did research on the bushmeat trade in Equatorial Guinea and then spent time living with the San bushmen in Southern Africa. Having worked on Meerkat Manor and Nick Baker’s Weird Creatures, he joined the BBC to work on Frozen Planet and then Wild Arabia. He’s been lucky enough to film polar bears feasting on a whale carcass, camel racing with robotic jockeys, and be surrounded by nearly half a million King penguins. On Planet Earth II he decided to leave the wildernesses behind to produce and direct the ‘Cities’ episode. Highlights included filming langurs and macaques in India, and hyenas roaming the streets in Ethiopia, where he was struck by the harmonious relationship between people and the potentially dangerous animals they shared their cities with.

2017-10-10T19:30:00+01:002017-10-14T22:00:00+01:00
A bold new adaptation of Harold Pinter’s classic The Caretaker comes to Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) from 10-14 October 2017. Produced by Bristol Old Vic and Royal & Derngate and directed by Christopher Haydon (Grounded, Twelve Angry Men), The Caretaker firmly sets the paranoia of living in an ever-changing landscape against our own politically and culturally uncertain times. It tells the riveting tale of Aston, who welcomes the homeless Davies into his dilapidated flat, sheltering him from the violence of the streets. Recognising an opportunity, Davies attempts to leave his past behind and start afresh. But what is he being offered? Friendship? Shelter? A job? Or a home? When Mick, the landlord arrives, he confronts the unexpected guest and the three men begin to circle one other suspiciously, each desperate to turn this new situation to their advantage, whatever the cost. The Caretaker is part of a new Autumn season of smash hit theatre at NST, including critically acclaimed West End hits Headlong’s Things I Know To Be True and Hetty Feather. Tickets are available from the Box Office 023 8067 1771 or online at nstheatres.co.uk

Daragh Lynch guitar, vocals
Cormac Mac Diarmada fiddle, vocals

As punk in attitude as they are traditional in sound, Lankum are one of the most talked about bands to come out of Ireland in decades. Nominated for ‘Best Group’, ‘Best Album’ & ‘Horizon Award’ at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016, they combine distinctive four-part vocal harmonies with arrangements of uilleann pipes, concertina, Russian accordion, fiddle and guitar. Their repertoire spans humorous Dublin music-hall ditties and street-songs, classic ballads from the Traveller tradition, traditional Irish and American dance tunes, and their own original material.
 
The band’s debut album, Cold Old Fire, won universally glowing reviews, influenced by Irish legends such as Frank Harte, Planxty and The Dubliners and peppered with subtle traces of the group’s collective loves, from American old-timey music, ambient techno and psychedelic folk, to black metal, punk and rock n’ roll.

Schubert
Violin Sonata in D, D384 Sonatina
 
Beethoven
Sonata No 10 in G, Op 96
Sonata No 9 in A, Op 47 Kreutzer
 
Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver’s final programme includes the last two sonatas which Beethoven wrote.  Separated by a gap of ten years they are contrasting works.  The Kreutzer, arguably the most popular and regularly performed of the whole cycle, is monumental in scale and was described by Beethoven as ‘written in a highly concertante style, just like a concerto’, whilst the tenth and last sonata is more intimate and restrained.

Schubert’s first violin sonata, which opens the programme, was composed in 1816, the year in which Beethoven’s final sonata was published.

The Vienna Piano Trio launch their 2017-18 series with music by Beethoven which established his reputation as a composer at the age of 25. Praised by Haydn, the three trios which form Op 1 were among Beethoven’s most popular works during his lifetime. Wolfgang Rihm’s three ‘essays’ for piano trio – of which the Trio play the first – have similarly become classics of new chamber music since their premiere in the early 1980s. Schumann’s first piano trio concludes the concert. Dedicated to his wife Clara, she described it as ‘full of youthful energy’.
