DORA vs PICASSO
Eastbourne Festival 16 July
Lewes All Saints 24 July
Written by Lewes poet Grace Nichols the production enthralled audiences at its previews and was massively sold out at its Lewes performance last February. The work, set partly against the background of the Spanish Civil War, features live flamenco music and dance, exhilirating acting and projected images.
“Wonderful. Superb. So emotional.” (Audience feedback)
MERLIN & POLINA SHEPHERD
All Saints Lewes: Sat 25 July
Duo performance by singer / pianist Polina Shepherd (above) and Merlin Shepherd (clarinet), both virtuosi in their own right.
An explosive mixture of powerful dance rhythms and profound melodies of the Steppes and the Shtetl spiced up by Tatar Bazaars and washed down with a fisherman’s song from Odessa.
Effervescent Klezmer, Turkish, Russian, Greek and Romanian music styles.
"Nice clarinet playing." (Al Pacino)
