Wet Dogs & Up ‘n’ Comers

In exciting international news, we have a real treat coming up from our more Westward followers as Nik Wakefield leads a brand new HAC project at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

Valley of the Water Dog: Above The Stone tells the story of a young couple who leave the big smoke behind for a taste of wilderness, and the changes in the seasons and their senses as they adapt. It features poetry, movement, music, video, light and sound, and is inspired by such various ideas as the writings of William Carlos Williams, Robert Frost, Sam Shepard, Patti Smith and Tom Waits.

It’s one night only, so if you happen to be in Wales that day, grab a ticket. If you’re not in Wales, book a train, then book a ticket. See you there.

.. and if that’s not enough for you, here’s a lovely piece from the Standard to keep you all excited about the Coming Up! Festival which our Tim’s been working his little socks off for:

“From Monday until March 4, 8,000 Londoners will be able to take part in a series of free shows from the surreal to the sublime – think wrestling, a silent opera, a folk-hip-hop collaboration and a theatrical cooking banquet – in Debut, a venue under the arches of London Bridge. Six creative producers – Londoners aged under 30 shortlisted from a selection of 200 – have been given the opportunity to divide up the cash and put their ideas into play…”
