  • Castaways

    Suitable for ages 13+

    Book now

    Family Arts Festival- 

    Three teenagers –born on the same day, in the same town but with very different backgrounds.

    Inseparable since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they’re a close-knit trio, both at school and at home. Sam, Asha and Kieran watch out for each other, until one day a shocking event blows their teenage world apart – and their friendship with it.

    Castaways explores the nature of friendship, trauma and tribal loyalties in a neighbourhood where the blue touch paper is waiting to be lit…

    Castaways has been developed through creative workshops with young people, exploring their sense of connectedness – or otherwise – with the communities they have grown up in.

    There will be a chance to talk about the issues raised in the play at a post-show discussion.

    Saturday 26th May 2018

    ______________________________________________________________

    Sounds of the World brings critically acclaimed global musicians to Woolwich, providing a platform to share live music, culture and food with local audiences.

    Audiences are invited to interact with the artists after the performances through a live Q&A session, providing an opportunity to learn about the performers artistic journeys and musical styles.

    Join us for a night of explosive rhythms and hypnotic melody lines that will take you out of London and around the world.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Live performances from:

    Urban Sound

    Asian Music Group Urban Sound is a collaboration between percussionists Jihye Kim and Beibei Wang, and pianist Belle Chen – three of London’s most exciting young musicians who have been pushing the boundaries across experimental, world, and classical music genres.

    They will take you on journey to the Far East through a dynamic and kaleidoscopic performance; where Korean and Chinese traditional music meets improvisation, avant-garde, experimentalism and sound design.

    Nogabe Randriamalala

    African, Asian and Europe cultures and music styles have co-existed for centuries on the island of Madagascar. This unusual melting pot has produced many beautiful melodies, and guitarists like Nogabe Randriamalala have helped create a style unique to the Island. Nogabe was born and raised in Madagascar, and also lived in China for many years, where he added more diverse influences to his musical style.

    He is now based in London and his music continues to evolve and mature. His most recent album Aftra marks a return to more traditional Malagasy rhythms, such as the Salegy and Tsapika styles. Nogabe works in a trio from guitars and percussion .

    “The acoustic guitar is Nogabe’s weapon of choice and he makes it sound unlike it does anywhere else … its spotless, bell-clear tone is matched by a dazzling agility and liquidity that millions of bedroom singer-songwriters could only dream of “ Womad Festival 2009

  • The Voyage of La Sibylle

    Suitage for all ages

    Family Arts Festival- 

    ‘La Sibylle’, the oracle of Delphi, is a legendary female prophetess, who is being transported on a cart, in a birdcage, stacked high on a pile of suitcases by her faithful servant Betty. These carny characters are seeking the counter curse to restore her body with her head that Apollo so wickedly stole. Betty, who is easily distracted by modern life, explores her surroundings and tells the tale of her mistress’s woes. The audience are asked to go seek out strange things to put together to create a remedy that will break the curse. La Sibylle’s frustration shows, being at the whim of Betty’s frivolous and inquisitive nature. The Oracle finds herself confined and powerless on one hand and yet excited and enthused on another.

     

    ‘The Voyage of La Sibylle’ is a comical and magical illusion, which gives the audience a chance to interact with two peculiar carny folk who have stepped out of the 1930’s and are wandering around in the 21st Century.
